User has a rectangular pocket with blended corners in a solid, and wants to 

extract this pocket as a new solid. How can this be done?


 1. Switch to the idealized part and wave-link this body. Toggle ON 'Hide 


2. Then, select 'Insert -> Synchronous Modeling -> Delete face' command. Set 

the 'Smart Selection Method' to 'Boss or Pocket Faces' and pick a face in the 

pocket feature. This should select all of the pocket faces. 

3. Now, select 'All but selected' button (from the selection toolbar) and then
