I made a simple sign using a 60° V-Bit for both the text and a border.
The text was a V-Carve tool path
The border was a Contour tool path
I have a BitSetter and was surprised when the job stopped after cutting out the text and presented me with the change bit screen. I simply pressed resume and it measured the bit again and continued.
Was this because I changed the tool path from V-Carve to Contour?

Would you please post the .c2d file?
Attached is the .c2d file that is displays a blank screen with only the tool and tool path data at the bottom.

I will also repost to cutrocket.com
Wrong file. This was to a response regarding a message left about posting to Cutrocket.com Hope to hear from you on that issue.
In the meantime here is the project file for the sign and border question.

Can you verify the tool numbers for the same bit are the same? The only reason CM “should” ask for a tool change is if the tool numbers are different.
Tool # is the same for both tool paths. #302
In addition to the above make sure you:
Have the BitSetter enabled in CM and it’s position set.
That you’re using the Shapeoko post processor in CC and not the generic grbl post processor.
BitSetter is enabled in CM - position set correctly.
Shapeoko post processor in CC is selected.
I’ve used this for an Advanced V-Carve project and it worked.
