I noticed the tool number is the Amana number, maybe try something like 30? I know that’s given me issues in the past with F360 when using Amana bits, but that might not be why the pp is failing.

If changing tool number doesn’t work, what does the engrave tool path look like?

I recall similar problems with tool numbers, in my case, 3 digit. It seems F360 prefers 00-99.

AH. Okay I see what’s going on I rename all the “Number:” fields to be the Amana Model Numbers so they are easier to find. But when you change the Number “Length Offset:” and “Diameter Offset:” also change to equal it.

It’s all good if you just use “45771” only in the Number: field and leave the other 2 fields = 1.

Thanks @Griff and @dakyleman
