    Can't engrave text in fusion 360 because of tool choice!! HELPPPP

    Hello everyone, I'm losing my mind over here I'm just trying to run a test pass and engrave the word test into a piece of scrap aluminum in fusion 360, however once cad is finished and I get to where I make tool choice fusion try's to make me select a chamfer mill, I did try to select it to see what would happen but then you get to entering the sizes of your tool and it won't change its set at .5! Am I doing something wrong, I tried to change it to .124 and it changes right back.. I have two spring loaded engraving tools, 1 is the tormach TTS diamond engraver assembly and 1 is the spring loaded tool that holds the small 1/8" engraving bits.. I don't understand why it won't allow me to select these tools or at the very least enter their sizes, I would like to do NFA engravings to make a little extra cash I'm a master gunsmith with an FFL and have just broken into the machining side of things.. I have always used manual machines so cnc is quite new to me any help fellas!!

    you have to make up a bull**** chamfer mill all you need to do is make sure the sizing is the correct and the angle, the angle is to 90 not from 90 so a 60 degree is 30 degrees you need to make the tool first. just did it for a test

    So basically I have to add tool, but not really cause I'm still choosing a chamfer mill lol. Instead of what I'm using.. Alright then I'll give it a go..
