Helix Help...

Hello,

 

This is my first time posting maybe if someone would be able to help.  I am trying to create a helix profile of the following part, but with no luck!

 

We would be using a ball nose endmill starting at one point and exiting at the second point, with a smooth transition between points and revolving the part axis.  Everytime i try it out its either not a smooth profile or it has a weird shape.

 

Regards,

Elvino
