I'm trying to do a cut that will make this kind of "door crease":
Any help with this would be highly appreciated.
This method works as well and avoids the need to delete faces:
I uploaded a Step file so you can preview the results.

This should do what you are looking for Mr. Crankyface (SolidWorks saves the name of the last person to save the file)

Robin, That's interesting. If you can upload the model, I'll see if I can take a look at it tonight. My first impression is that the Delete - Face command might work to delete that little sliver and patch it all back together. I don't like "fixing" it that way, as it is sort of a band-aid rather than a solution, but it is worth a try.
That's a really good way of doing it, thanks!
1 problem still remains however, when I make the cutout shape like a door, with the front part slanted like the windshield.
The cut it creates is a bit different between the different planes/faces, this creates a crease along the edge which won't let me chamfer it.
Delete Face works pretty well, but I think there are better solutions.
Try to Delete and Patch like these screenshots show. I did it in two steps, but you should be able to delete all three offending faces at the same time.
I was thinking that this might be done in a few less steps by using the Move - Face tool, but it did not work at all, So I thought of this alternative:
Select the two angled faces, and use the Surface - Offset command (I set it to 2mm).
Now take your sketch and do a cut - Up to surface
The result is the same, but it saves a few steps by removing the splitting, knitting, and thickening commands.
The cool thing about the above option is the Offset command automatically knits the surfaces together.
