I am trying to create a geometry where I have to tilt structural fins at an angle of 45 degrees inside a rectangle. This is a 3-D simulation. Even if I create the structural fins and then try and extrude them at an angle of 45 degrees, it messes the geometry up. In the attached screenshots, there is the rectangular device constructed on the XY plane and the structural fins constructed inside the device. I need to be able to have the structural fins tilted at an angle of 45 degrees. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Could you please post some screenshots of your current geometry so we understand your question better?

I attached a couple of screenshots of the geometry I have been working on. Hoping this will give you more insight.

I should have asked you this question earlier - are you using SC or DM?

First, draw a line at the angle you desire. Next, while using the pull tool, use the sweep tool guide as shown in this part of the manual.

I think Move tool in SpaceClaim can help you.
Please check following videos for the same.

I am currently using DM. Would you rather I use space claim?

Yes, please use SpaceClaim.
You will find it very easy and user friendly.
