Different draft angles in x/y

Dear all,


I am trying to model a form cutter for turning parts on a Wickman Multi-spindle lathe, the 2D form on the top of the tool is on the centre line of cutting & so generates the opposite shape on the part.

Hopefully you can shed some light on what is hopefully an easy solution but I can't get my head around it.


In order to relieve the front cutting edge we apply 8 degrees of front rake (82 deg from the top face), then 1 degree of side rake to prevent rubbing.

Using the standard draft feature applies one angle in all directions but I need to apply 8 degrees in XZ and 1 degree in YZ.
