          To get you started, you'll probably want to use Limit Angle mates, under Advanced Mates.  That will let you set a minimum and maximum angle between surfaces, planes, etc.


          And can you show a picture or sketch of what you have so far, or at least what you have in mind?  It's a little difficult to follow or help without more information.
