I have a square tube with a lines path along its inner surfaces I want to create a cutout to remove material from the lines to one end of the tube, I need the cutout to be normal to surface. Part is not a sheet. What is the quicker/best tool to do that? I mean something like normal cutout in Solidedge.
Solved! Go to Solution.
See if this example makes sense to you....if the tube is planar, you can use the planar face as the Extrude's direction vector. Alternatively, you can place a Datum CSYS on the planar face, Sketch your curves then Extrude. Several ways to accomplish this.
If not planar, you'll need to give an example.

Thank you @mike_fdo your method worked perfectly. Sorry I didnt attach a picture/file before, just too busy when I posted.
I attach now just in case it helps other forum members in the same situation. What I try to represent is the geometry of a square tube cutted by a CNC tube cutting machine, now, the external edge of the cut is the path the laser head must follow in order to the internal face almost exactly match a round tube where we will weld this one.
