Learn,
You need to draw the profile line for the diameter you want then offset it outwards by the radius of the ball mill you are using. Then use ProfiletoHelix on that line.  Then use an engrave on the resulting helix.

Not with this version, it already does ball nose compensation.

Gary,
I think we have been here before, this version does not do something the older one did and you wanted what the old one did.  Cheesy
