Modeling of a ball endmill

Creator

I have to accurately model a ball endmill with spiral flutes and the correct primary and secondary cutting edges. Does anybody know of some NX wizard or program that can generate this? 

Thanks, Steve

Well, 156 views in a week and no replies. I guess that answers the question. Smells like an opportunity!!!!

I don't think you will find any specific function inside of NX for the creation of the type of geometry.
But you should really look at Swept Solid function.
