I am trying to generate G-Code

I am trying to generate G-Code to mill a part I designed. My part has external threads traced across the top of it. I have uploaded a copy the model file for folks to noodle with. I was going to mill this as two jobs. The first job will be for a dovetail along the bottom side and the second job will be to mill the external threads that will engage an internally threaded adjustment ring. The ring will engage the threads across the top of the piece.

I am new to HSM works and would appreciate any suggestions regarding how I can set it up to cut those threads with a 60 deg chamfer mill. Nothing has worked so far.


Thanks in advance
