Hello All,

I'm having a hard time trying to model an extruded cut on a part based on a drawing I have here.  The drawing detail assumes this will be a mitered pipe segment.  I need to develop a flat pattern for a plate that will be formed with brake lines to resemble this segment.  I've done several of these in the past with no issues but now I have some where the difference between the near side tip and far side tip is too great to be ignored for the model.  See my snips below, as well as the drawing detail.  Thanks for any advice on developing this compound miter using the 1-13/16" dimension.  Its figured using sheet metal base flange for flattening.  I'm attaching the .sldprt file as well.
