One way would be to use a Planar Mill operation, set the boundary plane at the height of the curves.  Set the floor at the desired depth. On the cut levels you can set Incremental Side stock.  this way you can get a tapered tool path

 

I cannot download files so I could not look at what you had attached.

If you want to comolete in one pass then you can choose Profile 3D from Mill Contour operation.

Refer below sketch for more details.

 

If its not helpful then attach the part file compatible for NX 8.5 version so that I can help you more.

Are you asking how to do it in one pass... like with a tapered endmill?

Your on the right track...

 

I would use planner mill, not planner profile

 

Describe the tool as a chamfer mill,make sure the descrition... (taper, tip dia. are correct)

 

Bounday face is the top/sketch plane. Pick the line boundary as an open profile (tool on the correct side)

pick the slot bottom as the floor. Set your cut pattern to profile

 

That's all you want one profile pass following the sketch curve. that is what you will get. toll will contact the correct spot on the curve... tool taper driving on the curve edge

 

Works great for edge chamfering too. set the floor where you want the tip of the tool to be, set the stock as minus stock and you get nice edge chamfers.

hi,

        Good job. In Planner Mill, Cut pattern is profile only. So either way it is correct.
