Can Rocksim create an nosecone with an elliptical cross section?

I'm trying to figure out how to make an nosecone in Rocksim 10.2 that mimics the new Estes Vesta Intruder nosecone. It has an elliptical cross section, plus some raised areas. In theory I guess I could create a combination of tubes, nosecones, and transitions that are merged into one clunky nosecone. I've used a similar technique to "split" a nosecone onto a rear fin, ala my Space-X Enforcer design, but Rocksim apparently can't handle such a thing and the sim generally crashes (once in a while it will actually run, but not often).

I looked through Apogee's tutorials, but I guess this is an really unusual request that nobody else has asked about?
