Finishing Operation for a Semi-Sphere

I'm having trouble creating a finishing operation for a very simple semi-sphere that I've created. I need it to be smooth and preferably not leave the part (have as few rapid non-cutting motions as possible). I've tried using ZLEVEL_PROFILE, which didn't let me ramp on the part, and Streamline, which brought up an error stating that I didn't have a full drive surface.

 

I've also tried a few other options, but to no avail. Is there any simple, spiral operation in NX that I can use or am I missing some sort of parameter on the options that I've already tried?

Hi Jacob,

 

Attached I'm sending a video showing how you can finish your part using the Streamline operation.

 

I hope this help.
