Hello! How can I define a turning-formtool with concave corners like this:

It's a tool for grooving.

Thank you all.

Tool type = turning

Tool subtype = Form Tool

In NX10 it looks like this:

Once the dialog comes up, hit your "F1" key to get context senistive help.

It also might help to (in a "junk" part) create a sketch/drawing with the profile, then you can do "info" (or add dimensions) to get the data the form tool dialog needs.

Hello!

 

That was clear to me. I know what type of tool this must be. Have you ever defined a concave corner? This is what I do not succeed.
