Cuts and Protrusions Normal to a Surface - Success!
Many thanks to Vaughn McDaniel for his suggestion which jogged my memory on how I had accomplished this on another part some time ago. His suggestion as listed below works perfect. I kept trying to go down the path of attempting to make a datum axis normal to the surface but Pro/ENGINEER at least in 2001 only allows axis normal to a planer surface which I do not have on this part. If the surface is not planar (it sounds like it isn't) you can create a datum plane thru the point , tangent or normal to the curve. Then you may have to make the other plane thru the point normal to that plane and maybe also thru the curve. Use that as the sketch plane Thanks to all who responded to my plea.
