is that shape a planar face ? if so, you can create a sketch on that plane, and in sketch, select the face you desire and use the following command "Project 3D Elements" from the "Operation" toolbar (only in Sketch mode). The result will be the outline of that profile.

An other option in using Generative Shape Design. This is the surface modelling module in CATIA. You can enter here under START - Shape - Generative Shape Design. Just click on the face you want to create and then use the "Extract" commnad from the "Operations" toolbar, under "Boundary". The result will be a surface representing the profile of that face.
