Hello All,

I'm trying to make an extruded elliptical cut in a plate but it cannot go straight thru, it must go thru on a bevel (38.18 degrees).  The only info I have is for the outer elliptical geometry, not the inner.  I sketched the outer curve with the radius info to make 4 arc segments.  Now I need to have this curve cut thru the 1" plate at a bevel but the extruded cut with draft doesn't appear to work.  I read that maybe lofted cut would work but I think you need 2 curves in order to generate the cut.  Please see attached .sldprt and scan of the drawing info I have.  I need to cut the steel plate to the INNER curve (which I have no info for) and the shop can bevel to the outer curve (which is what the sketch is currently drawn to).  Thanks for any info.
