Can we do the taper spiral?
The customer wants the milling taper teeth .. but is the customized taper angle
If you want to do milling, what good way?
I guess you would like to have a toolpath that looks like a helical motion. Today, you can do that with a Z-Level-Profile operation by setting the Level to Level with Ramp on Part and setting the Ramp Angle you want (See the attached picture).
We are looking forward to introduce a new Helical option as a Steep Cut Pattern in future versions.
I hope that is what you needed. If not, please feel free to clarify.
I think you are asking about a tool path for machining tapered threads? When you say "teeth" are you talking about cutting a tapered pipe thread?
I am using NX10.0, and only see regular "helical" thread mill options. I'm not sure if there is a "tapered thread mill" option in NX. Hopefully a guru will jump in and let us know if that is possible somehow. (For comparison, Mastercam has supported cutting tapered threads for at least a decade...)
NX will automatically create a tapered thread tool path for NPT threads, as an example.
You only have to use the thread milling operation.

If you need a different taper angle, however, (IIRC) NX threadmilling doesn't allow editing of the taper angle.
You can define a tapered helix curve, then use (I thonk) FASC & drive method = "curve"
