How many axis 3, or more

 

Do you plan to use a tool with a matching angle?  Planar Mill

 

Or use a ball end mill to make multiple passes? - Fixed Contour

 

Or tilt the tool axis and cut with the side of the tool ?  Variable contour

3 axis

How to set these parameters?

The tool path cannot be generated.

The tool you have is a Ball Mill - you can't cut a non-planar surface with a Planan mill operation

So there are no operations available in the mill planar that tool axis is in Z axis to machine the inclined wall

If you want to use Planar Mill, you have to be creative with setting your parameters.

Otherwise, another operation might be more suitable for this feature.

Does your license give you the mill_contour template? If so, use the Zlevel Profile operation.

I apoligize, I should have tried this first

 

Here is a tool path using Planar mill on an inclined face.  This can be done in Planar mill, see attached file with NX11 .prt
