Can't really remember this one being discussed before so apologies if already noted.
Both 0.98 and 1.0.
It seems that 'Engrave' MOP cut width is not displayed correctly when the tool is a V-bit for engraving. On the screenshot the PCB bounding rectangle is set to engrave to a depth of 0.07 mm with a 60 deg V bit having a 0.3 mm tip.
(I use this as a first MOP to check material horizontal alignment.)
The tracks are a 'Profile' MOP with the same tool and generate and display correctly.

It appears that with the 'Engrave' MOP CamBam uses the depth increment (set to 1mm in the project) rather than the actual depth of cut to calculate the width to be shown. If I change the depth increment to 0.1 the displayed width becomes narrow as expected.

Note: this may be a feature whose purpose I fail to see but it seems the DOC should be the guiding value.

Before asking a question do some effort and walk through all menus and options in CamBam.  Maybe the answer is there. Please.
