To engrave $2.00, you need (2) blocks of code. The first block uses a P36 to engrave the dollar sign ($), and the second block uses P0 (2.00).

note: Shift the X/Y start location between the first and second line of code to make a space between the dollar sign and the 2.

This is the only method to engrave parenthesis ().
