    Im hoping someone here is a lot better than me at solidworks. I've been stuck trying to trim this piece for the past few hrs and i just cant figure out a way to take a the thickness off the edge and still retain the curve across the surface. Below is the model. It is the top section of the Xmen 2 phone. On the left u can see side wall which is too thick.

    Below is how thin I would like it, and the contour to the end. I would like to have this as the edge thickness and then blend back into the body. Anyone have have any clue how to do it???

    Well..yeh it ended up being an extrude in the opposite direction... I just had to make an awkward 3D sketch and slice the piece out.

    If i just extruded thru i would have lost the curve over the body. All done now tho:) just took too much thinking.
