Toolpath to cut side wall in an angle

Hello experts, i have been going at this for hours, i been trying to cut angled side walls or contours on a body (Similar to a cross section of a pyramid, see attached). With my limited knowledge, I've tried multiple operations without success. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Silvia

I assume you are looking for a machining toolpath, not a modeling method, right?
What do you have for a machine? If it's a 3-axis machine, I'd start with 3D Contour.

Would you be able to share your Fusion file here?

Correct, machining toolpath. It is a 3-axis machine. Tried 3d Contour, Parallel and other, different results, contour gives me an empty toolpath. Attaching the file. Thanks.

You had too many models selected in your Setup. Give this file a look and see what I changed 🙂

 

As an aside; you may want to consider working with the timeline on and avoid all of this...

Thank you Seth! I had not realized i selected the block (I created that to use it as reference for the Z orientation). I found you changed the bodies in the setup and added an Additional offset under Geometry (Without it one of the sides is not included), I'm able now to create the tool path with those modifications. In terms of the timeline, i only disabled it hoping the performance would improve, specially on those complicated mesh designs, it looks like it did improve however at a high cost. I really appreciate your quick response and guidance!!! Thanks, Silvia
