Hi all and Happy New Year!

 

I'm having a little problem offsetting a surface. I am following a written tutorial and SolidWorks will not let me complete the given instruction and I don't know why.

 

The instruction is "Offset it (surface) 0.125" into the grill opening then use the Delete Body feature on the surface that we filled the grill opening with".

 

It will let me offset it outwards if I needed to, but not inwards as required. I get an error stating that I need to use a smaller offset distance! WHY?
