Extruded Cut Linear Patter with a Complication

Hi all,


I have a question regarding a particular extruded cut I am making. I am working on a strip for sheet metal and am including a coining operation using the extruded cut feature on solidworks. This extruded cut has a 45 degree reference plane that I am using as the stopping plane. Now I would like to create a linear pattern of the extruded cut but the issue is it uses the same stopping plane at each patterned cut. Since the plane is at a 45 degree angle, the further the pattern goes out the deeper the cut is. Obviously I would like to keep the cut the same depth the whole way through. Is there any way I can accomplish this?
