The depth of the flute should be the incline height of the material over the radius of the arc. Then multiply that path along the material and adjust the starting depth for each fluting path (find your old trigonometry text book).
Sounds like a lot of work, but with the rounded flute slope option that might look similar. After all, maybe easier to do with a table saw...
