German term or phrase: acute/obtuse included angle
context: geometry of indexable inserts
"A cutting insert comprising a block of cutting material having first and second quadrilateral and substantially flat surfaces disposed in parallel planes, a first side of said first face surface being located at an acute included angle relative to a second and adjacent side of said first face surface and at an obtuse included angle relative to a third side of said first face surface.
I'm having trouble with how to phrase ...located at an acute/obtuse included angle relative to....
I know that acute/obtuse angles are scharfe/stumpfe Winkel, but how do I fit the included characteristic of the angle into the phrase?
Any help greatly appreciated!

Explanation:
Hi Beth,

What you have sounds generally OK, except it would probably be better to use 'oriented' instead of 'located' in your problem phrase.

wrong direction


Explanation:
I apologize for the confusion. Proz clearly showed me that I had entered my 2 questions in the English to German section, but then they appeared in the opposite direction. I don't know why.
I tried posting it again in the E -> G section, and it shows up under any to any. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Hope someone can help anyway!
