What is the best method for a slot machine on a taper surface. A sample part is attached.
Please suggest a best / optimum method for machining. In existing method of machining problem lies in abrupt Z movement at 2 ends of the slot. Somehow tool path is not smooth.

Planar mill with engage set to "Ramp on shape" is one option (may depend on floor geometry of pocket)

I'd rather be e-steemed than e-diseaseled
In your Solid Profile 3D operation, set as follow:
1. Cutting Parameters > Stock > Tolerance >
Intol = 0.1mm
Outtol = 0.1mm
2. Cutting Parameters > Corner> Smoothing >
Z-Axis Smoothing = ON
And set ramp angle to 30deg
3. Turn on whatever compressor that comes with your controller and you are done
For this case for me more easy to use old-good Sequential Milling operation. I buil sample, just sample, you can change engage, increment for passes, feeds etc.
How about using CONTOUR_PROFILE as a more modern way to get a tool path like with sequential milling?

One have fixed your tool path, another have used elementary NX features, and another suggested you to use Contour Profile (which you should have done so from the start).
And you are asking for a solution? wt...
There are about 20 something different ways to cut that slot with NX. And there are about a million other ways to find out how if you are really interested in finding a solution to your problem.
G2/G3 with a Z motion. You can gcode this in notepad in < minute. Geez man...
