When I import the 29891-RNC.drl file, the Fab3000 software correctly imports the .pho files, but incorrectly imports the drill file with an incorrect scaling factor.

Thanks for submitting a support ticket. Please remember Drill files are just XY coordinates without any formatting. Here's what your sample drill file looks like,
X005625Y00014 X005875Y000594 X005925Y000495
Note: There's nothing in the drill file header which states the drill format (i.e where the decimal place should occur, nor what units to use either: inch or millimeter, or even the tool sizes). These are things that FAB 3000 (and every other CAM tool must guess - unless that information is included in the drill header). Here's a few links about drill from the support forum which should help, https://support.numericalinnovations.com/support/discussions/topics/14000003485
Note: If you generated those Gerber and Drill files, I would recommend going to your PCB CAD tool and see if there are different options used during Gerber or Drill Export - to ensure both coordinates are the same - to prevent any additional steps (as above).
