But, what does the Path wb have to do here?
Good point and I have no idea. I had taken the model I accidentially had loaded (the dog's prothesis from lemonbug I think) and have added an additional line and even and external Part object for a test. Nothing Path like in it.

Does your basket have a global draft to unmould?
No its not but we already made one mold and we are running it. Now I am going to make this smaller one. For unmolding, we made four sliders and thats how we produce is. I will try to show you when this new design finished.

In the LinearPattern parameters, there is a "Select reference..." menu where you next select a reference (the line) in the 3D view.

But it won't work, because this would create multiple solids. A PartDesign Body can only hold a single solid. What you need to do is to first create the main basket body that your "piece of pie" will touch, then the pattern will work in the direction you wish because it will have support.
Thanks buddy you replied me.
Isnt it possible to make multiple solid bodies and then bolean add?? or trim?? I will try another method then post.

Yes it's possible, but not in PartDesign. Have a look at Image Draft Array.

Okay, seems like datum lines, sketches and even edges on solids aren't recognized. The "Select reference..." button does nothing. I believe it's a bug.

Normand, sorry for the late upload. Here is a file for an easy test of "Select reference ..." to define the direction. I finally found a case where "Select reference" does something

If I choose "Select reference ..." and next one of the diagonals
- DatumLine
- line from the sketch
- edge from the solid

nothing happens. It only works on the principal axes. To align the pattern diagonally works with the construction line.
