Whats the best way to model this tool

Hi Friends,

 

I'll like to model this tool and wonder if anyone has done anything similar. Notice the undercut above the raidus and that is what I'll like to have in a parametric form. I don't care about the pretty IGES/STEP model of the tool. This tool is usually used for material hogging, using adaptive tool path in Fusion 360 and I'll like to bring it in NXCam. The 32mm one is what interests me. In some materials I go down as deep as 75% of the dia (aluminum) whereas in some other materials such as steel its well below the screw hole in the insert.

 

Tool is from iscar.

 

Thanks a bunch.

Do you care about the "notches" in the insert?

I'm assuming not, but would like to confirm

@Ken_Anope, I don't care about the notches, they are under the swept profile of the tool. Let me explain, each insert is indexed a bit so as to reduce the depth of roughed up surface. I see it as a simple circular insert, without the grooves that run along the circumference of the cut.

 

I do wish to use the undercut above the torroid,upto at least 75% of the insert dia. 

 

Thanks!
