DRAFT help

If you use the center plane as the neutral plane (draft hinge) and split
at the neutral plane, that will work. However, the draft will not
originate at the edge of the cross bar feature. Each side will look
more like the 30 degree side.



You can try using the two edges of the cross bar as your draft hinge and
the center plane as your draft direction, but I believe the hinge has to
be a chain. It may work if you build a chain to connect the two edges,
perhaps under the overhanging portion.



You may have to build two draft features, splitting the first by the
draft hinge (edge of the bar) and only drafting the one side. Then
draft the other side using the other edge as the hinge.



In this case with two draft angles and the (assumed) requirement to
pivot at those edges, it may be best simply to create an extruded cut.
That will give you more flexibility with it down the road.
