Need Help Modeling an Insert


Hey guys and girls,

I have a curved surface for a part that will be made from ABS. I would like to model a thin silicone insert for that ABS piece that follows the curves of the surface.

How do I

(1) model a recess in the abs part in the surface where the silicone will go into?
(2) model the silicone insert?
(3) While following the existing curvatures?

Thanks... your help is hugely appreciated!
