Creo "Isocline" curve

I found this video from SolidEdge, and I found it very usefull

This video from NX with samething

Basically, on a surface or a quilt, it's possible to create a curve with an angle from a reference, like a shadow.

How to create it in CREO?

Actually, I have a better idea. You have a tangent edge all the way around where the radius meets the top. You also have the outside profile of the part. Using those two curves you can sweep ~~exactly half way~~ between them. This will give you a splitting surface at the 45 degree angle you want (or any angle you choose.)

Seems like you could just do a revolved surface at some angle and then create an intersect between the two quilts.

In a sphere yes. but in a complex quilt....

What is the angle measured from? If it's a fixed distance up from some reference (top plane), then it's not a fixed angle. If it's a fixed angle from some point, then a revolve should be correct. If just a fixed distance up, then a plane should work. What am I missing?

Let me put, my real need.

I've the following part:

I want to make the lateral bends in a step for my die, at 45º, I was thinking in a sweep, but it's not so easy. with that option, I would have a line with the 45º and then it a simple sweep. but without that line is not so simple!

The changing radius does make it more challenging. I wonder if you could create a bunch of points at the halfway through the radius and then construct a curve through those points and the surface to use as a split line.

yup, that's a possible solution.

I'm working, for now in a different way.

I defined a plane with 45º, and then silhouette option.

it's not exactly the same thing, but it's what I have found for now!

I must say, that the approach from solidEdge and NX, looks much more user friendly for this cases! I will make an product idea.

Don't know why, but I've missed your reply. and only now saw it. And I must say, very clever way!!!! I'm always learning! Thank you.

I must say, besides your excellent solution, I must say, that the way NX and SolidEdge works, it's my favorite!
