Doing a cut on 2 faces at different angles in solidworks?
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)

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.
