We'd need to hear more details. I'm not sure I understand the job. Is the cone separate from the part you showed, or carved from it? What is the size (approximately) of the finished part to be carved? I use Vectric Aspire, and it has some pretty powerful 3-dimensional model forming tools. I don't know if V-carve had that or not.
One practical problem is the vertical height of Axiom AR series machines is pretty constrained. It's 5.8 inches from the deck to the top of the gantry, but you won't get anything close to that with a bit in the spindle.
I've attached a Vectric Aspire image of a what a cone would look like from a simple model that took about a minute to set up. So stuff like this can be done within limits.
I don't believe you can digitize with the Elite. I know you can't on the AR6 Pro with RichAuto. The machine is certainly capable, but the RichAuto controller is built for simplicity, not maximal capabilities.

It looks like they started with a 5" square block that was 3" tall. Then they probably put it in a lathe & turned a taper on it. It was barley touching corners at the bottom, as the taper increased, it become almost completely round at the top.
I was hoping to program it using a ball end mill & small step over to get the taper on the OD of the block.
