Radial Groove Milling / Feature is not recognized

Hello! We have many, many parts with radial grooves like this:

 

2016-03-17 09_55_30-NX 10 - Manufacturing - [D1786983_0.prt (Modified)    (!)].png

In a first step we want to produce the red marked groove. Unfortunately this radial groove is not recognized as a radial groove. I get the message "A groove feature could not be derived from the selected geometry". A feature only is recognized if the groove really is rectangular (with 90 degree walls). I can't accept a solution that says to delete the bevels wirh direct modelling.

 

What can we do?

 

Thanks to all.

The new radial groove milling operation is at its initial stage, I assume that in the future more complex grooves will be supported.

 

A solution would be to use HOLE_MILLING with a spiral tool path, which is what we did in NX 8.5, where no groove milling was available.

I assumed as Stefan, this is just phase 1.

 

Did you file an IR/ER for the tapered groove?

If so, post the number and I'll add a "me too" ER.
