Hello again. Another idiotic question as I have a hard time with solidworks since I am extremely use to 3DS instead. Solidworks quicky annoys me with how difficult it always is and how you need to jump through 20 hoops to do one simple thing like moving a part.
I am trying to use a part I made in another file to extrude onto a plate I have. Both are the same sizes but I made the main part in another file because it was easier to deal with but when I insert the part, you cant do anything afterwards and I am trying to use it to extrude for the plate to have the proper cut out.
Please let me know.
I appreciate it in advance.
I hope I understand correct your attempt, this is my solution.
1) Make a sketch with the contour of your cutout (mark the surface and choose the function "offset entities" inline/outline=0).
2) Copy the sketch and paste it on the surface of the "target part", make from the "blue line sketch" a block and fix it in the appropriate position.
3) Cut the sketch out.

I ended up somehow merging the two sketches together on the cutout part and it turned it into one sketch allowing me to move it over to the part so I can extrude cut it when needed.
Only way I know how to make parts is to extrude cut everything piece by piece haha.
Extreme noob here. I apologize.
It came out different than the file you added but worked either way. I greatly appreciate it!
You can copy the original sketch and do the same like I proposed, but you have to flip the cut on the outside.
