Ant ideas on engraving a surface that is at an angle?  I tried creating an engraving tool path, then optputing the CLS file,  then using surface contour using toolpath as thedrive method, but the retracts are being ignored. 

 

any help would be great

Good to see you found it - this is the answer for drafting or PMI text.

If you are cutting curves from a modeling text feature, you can use surface contouting with Curve/Point drive method. Selection is easier if you set the selection to "Feature Curves".
