Blank contour zig issue

Has anyone had any success when using Blank Contour Zig in turning?

 

I am having issues with a ceramic tool burying itself in forgings when using contour zig (first pic). I can't get NX to force the tool to generate an arc or slow the feed down so I believe Blank Contour Zig is my best option. No matter what I try I keep getting an error telling me to adjust the cut depth or number of levels (second pic). It would be nice to just tell it to follow the stock and take X number of passes at X depth of cut but it doesnt seem to work like this. Any ideas???

Hi @JasonP 

Can you upload a small sample file. This will probably help us give you answer quickly rather than trying to replicate what you are doing.
