That looks like a veining bit used to put small vein lines in your design.

Import image into Aspire / VCPro
Draw vectors over the top of the image around the cutter
Scale the vectors so the shank = the actual diameter of the cuter ie 3mm / 6mm
Measure the angle and actual tip diameter.

Your photo is pretty good so you should get a reasonably accurate result and
you can then create the appropriate cutter in the Tool Database.

175 ? ... something wrong !

Perhaps 15° is the corret misure. I made a misure on screen.

If that is a .25 shank then it's 6° on each side.

That looks like a Beckwith.

I just use the standard ball nose.

Yes I think is the better way, but in my TRIAL version of Aspire I don't find in the tool library the "Radiused Engraving" ...

If the work/model have some height perhaps is better put like "Rounded Engravig", but in any way is a ballnose and normally is used to finishing tool paths and for that like a ballnose is a good way .
