Normal Cut

When adding a cut to a folded sheet metal part, select Normal cut to ensure that the cut is created normal to the sheet metal thickness.

Normal cut is located in the Cut-Extrude PropertyManager, and only appears with sheet metal. The same sketch, created on plane 1, and the same Depth are used in both models, but Normal cut is selected in the top model.
