Sheetmetal Cut Normal using a Revolve or Extrude feature

Status: New Idea

The ability to pick Cut Normal when using mainly a revolve feature is just as important as when using a cut feature.  There are many cases where the profile needed can not be generated with a cut feature and needs to be created using a revolve/sweep feature.

I looked and do not see any other post that pertains to using a cut normal with a revolve feature.  There are posts about having a cut normal but not with a revolved cut.

 That is why they put comments in this so you can add to the idea....

The Autodesk guys told me to make it a new thread when I posted it.

Yes we told Scott to do it this way. We actually don't like multiple things glommed together. They seem related to a user but the solutions are completely different in the code. This is why we asked him to do a new idea. To gauge how often this is needed vs. "regular" cut normal
