    I am replicating a part for a vintage car electrical switch (jpg
    attached) My design program is pro desktop. I am creating each
    segment of the undulating top surface of the part by creating a
    triangle, extruding it to a prism and then using the taper tool to
    incline the surface toward the centre of the component. The taper
    tool goes to a maximum of 60 degrees (indicated by an arrow on
    explaining the problem jpg) my design needs a taper angle of 79
    degrees to make the profile match the original part.

    The draft tool itself will not draft more than 30, strictly anything greater than 10/12 degrees is not a draft, at least not in moulding terms. If you want a draft on your feature you will need to consider building it another way. How depends entirely on what it is.

    If you can, send a screenshot of what you are working on.
