Using a customized tool in a .CATprocess

Hi CATIA forum. I was making some part operations with 3 axis machining and rotatory table. At some point, for the part I want to machine, there is a contouring in which I need to use a tool that does not appear in the CATIA templates. Therefore I was advised to create my own tool and add it to the resources of the process.

However, I am not sure in which format the customized tool must be saved. I saved it as a .CATproduct but even though I add it to the resources, it doesn't appear in any options when I open the tool change window. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
