I need to make the surfaces on the back of this case smoother. Please see attached picture with arrows pointing at the surfaces, that pretty much need to disapear and make a smooth transition.

Please let me know if you can help.

 

Thanks

I would try Delete Face with Heal.  But if you post your file (and tell us what version of Inventor you're using), I'll bet someone here can help you figure it out.

Open the file, drag the End of Part marker to the top of the feature tree (which hides all features and makes the file much smaller), save, then attach.

Anyone who is making something more complex than a box or cylinder should watch this video.

I recommend starting the part over from scratch following the guidlines from the link posted above.

Your file is more complex and larger file size than needed to create the geometry.

Rebuild All causes many errors and I would use far far fewer (if any) adaptive sketches as they aren't needed.

That is what my students always tell me.
Then next day (due date) they tell me that they started over at midnight and all went much faster, smoother, better than trying to fight a flawed technique that was flawed from the very first sketch.
