    Domed surface cut tangent to part face? (pics)

    Alex Mastro

      Hi, I want to apply a surface cut to a body to further reduce the volume (weight) of a part.  I would like the cut to carve out a dome-like shape from the part while maintaining tangency to the existing face near the edges of the cut.

       

      In the picture below, the boundary sketch that should define the edge of the cut is highlighted.

       

      How can I make this surface so that the surface cuts evenly?
