How to perform array of closed cuts with snap to 2 curves

I've done the metinoned cuts (please see the attachment) in NX11 but each profile was manually snapped to both circle and the line. It was a real pain. Now i need to model the same cuts in CATIA. Is there any proper way to perfrom it bby arrays and snaps? One more thing that the diameter of the circle and the anle of the line may change.

Hello Igor. It is easy if you have sheet metal module. Just create 2 part file. Limit the lateral gaps with circle. and limit the mid angler gap with another angler sketch. and make your pattern. then move this result into second part file. change the orientation of sheet metal thickness. create fillets. at the end just apply boolean (remove)

It is easy to add parameters between lines and patterns. But i want to highlight one thing again. The fillets. You have to select each of line by one by. There is no selection method for fillets. All selection has to be manually by user.

Any way it is more easy to create it without fillets. I will add another part, when i have time.

Wow! Not so easy as i expected. Is there any way to perform this in part design?

It is possible in part design also. But you have to make fillets manually :(

I'd like to improve a little bith the method by using User defined feature or power copy. For that case how should i specify the condition of auto coincidence of horizontal lines (in the pattern) to the circle and angular line (please refer the the picture attached). What i want to do is to add parameters of the quatity of lines, the distance between the lines and to specify it in the pattern.
