Have you gone through this document http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/AU2007/MA105-1L%20Mather.pdf

 

Click in the line and then the sketch plane that that hook sketch is drawn on. Enter 90° as the angle (to the sketch plane). This will give you the compound angle.

 

If you can't figure it out attach what you have so far.

when making angled sketch planes you need a plane for reference, then a line to rotate that plane about. You can draw a sketch and create a construction line, you can create a reference axis(same location as creating a plane) or you can use existing geometry like you have there.

Very simple

Click on the Workplane tool.

Click on the Line

Click on the Workplane that was used when you created the line.

Hit Enter

 

If you can't figure it out zip and attach your file here.

alright red here are some screen shots. I tried to make something that looked like your model.

 

Picture 1 is the model space with my XY plane visible(red outlined with yellow).

 

Second picture you can see the work plane button depressed, and my sketch line(where you were asking about a plane) is now red and has a large extension. This is because after i selected Work Plane(or hit the ] button) i selected my line(telling Inventor i wasnt to rotate about this axis).

 

Third picture, That line has now turned blue and you can see my plane now has some red lines around it and there is a ghost image of a plane. Select this xy plane(not sure if its xy in your model but whichever plane goes vertically through your part that you drew your "hook" on)

 

Fourth pic, After the plane was selected(now highlighted as well as my reference line) it prompts you for an angle. This is the angle you want to take that original plane(xy in my case) and rotate it about the reference line you selected. 90 degrees as JD pointed out, will give you the plane you are looking for. 90 is the default entry.

 

fifth pic is my new plane now created.

Im gett error "MODELING FAILURE: A RAIL CURVE INTERSECTS A SECTION MORE THAN ONCE" when trying to loft ?

I would suggest you start a new thread after a search for the loft command. It has been covered many times:)

 

Depending on the version of inventor, each section needs to be its own sketch, and each rail needs to be its own sketch as well. I suspect some of your lines will need to be converted to references.
