Draw your arch shape and select it. Go to menu SURFACE>CREATE RELIEF. In the wizard box on the bottom of the page, in the lower left corner, you will see the relief options. Choose ROUND RELIEF...REPLACE RELIEF. To the right you will see the slider for ANGLE. Adjust to 90 degrees and click APPLY button. Your arch will now be bullnosed even the ends, for a nice effect.

You can also EXTRUDE the bullnose shape over a flat relief and this will eliminate the rounded ends and leave them square.

I think the first option is what you are looking for. Practice with it for awhile.

You can then just toolpath accordingly.

Good Luck,

Tom in PA

I think Tom's first idea is wat you are looking for. Just make sure you remember to "position" your releif into material (plate) before toolpathing.

Hope this info helps.
