Spanish term or phrase: generatriz
Esta tira se obtiene aplicando el cuchillo a lo largo de dos generatrices con la profundidad suficiente para cortar la pantalla semiconductora interna.

No me convence mucho la que encontré en Kudoz, me da la impresión que es una línea guía para realizar un corte.

Gracias por la ayuda.
