I'm trying to find a straightforward way to program this and nothing seems simple.
The track in the picture has angled sides. The designer specified a gage depth (.025) and wants the widths and radii at that depth. I created a cut plane and saved it to the CAD file. When I pick the line using Teach 2D feature it asks for the orientation plane but I can't pick the plane that the line is in. If I pick XZ plane then I am not hitting the surface normal.
The two solutions I can think of is to measure all 8 planes and 8 cones and construct the intersection or to key in the normal vectors for each line (which doesn't fix the problem for the radii).
