How to set an angle analysis between two planes (with the right normals)

Morning everyone

 

I'm trying to export a summary angle feature towards creo mechanism to follow the evolution of an angle during a simulation.

 

When I set this angle between two solid surfaces it works well (it's defined as the angle between the normal of each surface...normal being outwards from the solid)

 

However when I want to do this between two planes , the normals between which the angle is computed are randomly chosen (left or right from the plane).

 

I have a specific need for an angle (and therefore not this angle +180 because the normal is the wrong direction)

 

Does anyone know the trick (to chose the normals)

 

Thank you

 

Edouard
