This is trivial.
I suspect your screenshot does not reveal your true problem.

Attach your real problem (ipt file) here.
You should be able to get any trimmed planar surface at any angle you want.

Other surfaces are a bit more challenging, but without the real file....

images attached... the red color surface is where i want to apply draft....


This looks pretty simple.

Attach Inventor file here rather than images.

Do you have access to Inventor Tooling?

That's still an image file, not a part file.

Should be trivially easy to create a dummy example that doesn't give away any proprietary information but exhibits all the same behavior.
Even if you can't directly draft a surface like you can a face, it should be trivially easy to work around (especially for the planar surface you have pictured).

This is a peer-to-peer help forum.

The Inventor Wish list is over here http://www.augi.com

There is also a direct Autodesk link if you would like for me to look it up for you.

dude what u are seeing there is only a 1% of the whole project....

i have done the draft using manual options only (like deleting the face using 3d sketches to project the edges and patching it)....

 

its done.... but am looking for an easy way to do this.... it took a hell lot of time.... if there was an option for this it could be done in seconds....

I suspect there is a trivially easy solution - but you will have to make the effort to create and post an example that exhibits all of the behavior of your proprietary data.
