I need help with debossing an area of a surface

Hi all,


Here's a 3D geometry creation challenge... At least for me.  Hopefully not for you.


This is a rectanglar plastic shell that needs an area debossed.  The area wraps around the corner of this soft rectangle.  I need to control the edges of the debossed feature to remain parallel with their repective midplanes.  I tried projecting three discrete sketches onto each "face" (top, right, front...) keeping the endpoints of the sketches aligned and tangent with the other two, but I had trouble with that - and even if I wrestled it to work, I think there is a better way.  I am wondering if 3D sketches can help  - something I have zero experience with but want to learn.


Anyway, take a look and let me know if you've done something like this before and if so, can you provide me with some tips / hints on how to achieve this?
