I'm not having luck with the Trim Entities feature, which is just for sketches. I just want to shave the top part off completely at the angle that I've drawn. enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Make your angle into a plane along face you want to cut, then you can use it to trim or cut. $\endgroup$ Feb 1 at 17:29
  • $\begingroup$ @StainlessSteelRat thank you! that worked (with insert > cut > with surface) $\endgroup$

There's a couple of ways to do this - I've illustrated both @StainlessSteelRat's Plane Cut method, and @NMech's Cut/Extrude method.

Both are valid, and as always with these questions - there's not enough context to recommend which of these two, or the numerous other potential methods is best for your situation.

  • Just create a sketch on that face.
  • Then draw a box that includes completely the part you want to get rid off.
  • Use that sketch with a cut extrude feature.
