i tried all types of profiles.a msg says that the profile is not tangential to the spine.i tried to create a profile that is starting at teh surface and ends above it.but it is not accepting it.

Step1: Select edge
Step2: In profile select plane normal to edge to create sketch.
Step3: Create open profile connected and tangential to edge base.The sketch must be filleted and larger than object selected so that the materal will not overlap.
