I am using Solidworks to design parts for RP.
Recently I discovered Metalise It, which deposits a metal layer onto RP parts to give better strength and surface finish.

The process deposits a 100-200 micrometer thick layer onto all surfaces. How can I remove a 200 micrometer skin from all surfaces to accommodate the coating thickness?

Thanks

You could use face->move (select offset, not translate or rotate).
