Yep - playing the GCODE back in Simplify3D gets a perfect square:
That is:
G92 E0
G1 X378.546 Y352.217
G1 X458.698 Y272.065 E76.6848 ;
G1 X457.434 Y271.615
G1 X384.642 Y252.783
G1 X324.204 Y313.221 E144.1098 ;
G1 X323.103 Y312.381
G1 X379.141 Y252.143
G1 X470.219 Y343.221 E58.8828 ;
G1 X469.321 Y343.146
G1 X403.880 Y370.221
G1 X301.294 Y267.635 E129.3704 ;
; layer 717, Z = 359.250
G1 Z359.250
G1 X382.211 Y348.552
G1 X428.88 Y301.883 E76.6848 ;
G1 X382.211 Y255.214 E144.1098 ;
G1 X335.542 Y301.883 E58.8828 ;
G1 X382.211 Y348.552 E129.3704 ;
Now I just have to make a couple of versions of this, one repeating 3 times
with no extrusion and one just once with extrusion, and jog the printer in
between until I find the perfect offset!
Thanks again

Fantastic, thanks Torsten, I was just thinking on similar lines...
I remembered an online STL to OpenSCAD converter.
So I did a Linear_extrude of my intersection and got:
Then used this dead useful tool https://jsfiddle.net/Riham/yzvGD/ to get:
module object1(scale) {polyhedron(
points=[[382.211,348.552,0],[428.88,301.883,0],[382.211,255.214,0],[382.211,
348.552,0],[382.211,255.214,0],[335.542,301.883,0],[382.211,255.214,10],[428
.88,301.883,10],[382.211,348.552,10],[335.542,301.883,10],[382.211,255.214,1
0],[382.211,348.552,10],[382.211,348.552,0],[428.88,301.883,10],[428.88,301.
883,0],[382.211,348.552,0],[382.211,348.552,10],[428.88,301.883,10],[335.542
,301.883,0],[382.211,348.552,10],[382.211,348.552,0],[335.542,301.883,0],[33
5.542,301.883,10],[382.211,348.552,10],[382.211,255.214,0],[335.542,301.883,
10],[335.542,301.883,0],[382.211,255.214,0],[382.211,255.214,10],[335.542,30
1.883,10],[428.88,301.883,0],[382.211,255.214,10],[382.211,255.214,0],[428.8
8,301.883,0],[428.88,301.883,10],[382.211,255.214,10] ],
faces=[[0,1,2],[3,4,5],[6,7,8],[9,10,11],[12,13,14],[15,16,17],[18,19,20],[2
1,22,23],[24,25,26],[27,28,29],[30,31,32],[33,34,35]]);}
translate([200,0,0])
object1(1);
Which if I strip it down a bit gets:
module object4(scale) {polyhedron(
points=[[382.211,348.552,0],
[428.88,301.883,0],
[382.211,255.214,0],
[335.542,301.883,0]],
faces=[[0,1,2,3]]);}
object4(1);
.which are exactly the same co-ordinates you got with rounding error of
0.001mm so that's verified nicely via 2 methods!
Thanks very much!!!
Now I can use these co-ordinates to make a GCODE file that plays repeats of
a square movement between those co-ordinates, and finally one that extrudes
plastic for when I think I've jogged X and Y successfully!

Export as SVG, that gives:
M 428.88,-301.882 L 382.211,-348.552 L 335.542,-301.883 L 382.212,-255.214 z
Note that the Y coordinates are negated due to SVG coordinate
system having the origin top left.
ciao,
Torsten.
