How to make marking

I have a part that is shaped like the attached. How to make a marking emboss on the red area?

Because before make a emboss i can't make sketch in area that.

thanks before...

First, do what JDMather recommends above.  Then open the part I have attached, pull the End of Part marker down and examine how I did it.  This is not the only way, nor the "right" way, but it is robust and relatively easy to modify as needed.  Notice in sketch 1 that I did not need to divide all my diameter dimensions by two, but instead turned the axis to centerline type.  Dimensions placed to a centerline will automatically be placed as diameter dimensions.  I also used the Split tool with Trim Solid selected rather than the Sculpt tool.  Both tools give the correct result, but the Split tool is a bit more obvious to someone else looking at the file.

 

If you run into difficulties, post back here with your model attached.

Sketch2 contains the line where the angled face intersects the XY plane.  To create the tangent work plane, I selected the XY plane and the sketch line and left the default angle of 90°.  That is: Work Plane tool > select XY plane > select sketch line in Sketch2 > OK (to accept angle dimension 90°).

Sketch1 is not constrained or making use of obvious symmetry about the origin.
I recommend you start here  http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/SkillsUSA%20University.pdf

 

Then you will want to make a plane tangent to your conical face for sketching the 2D to Emboss with Wrap to Face.
