I don't see a groove in the red object; I am assuming that you translated to english and a little got lost.
So, in a nebulous way I see a depression in that (seat?, foot rest?) Starting high at the back side and low in the center front side and a form that is ribbon-like.
With that in mind I think you can form a model like that red shape:
in v17:Create a loop representing the back (sketch bspline polar/closed) then create a loop in an offset plans for the front loop. Then loft between the two loops.
Then the form will have been created. Then apply other tools for opening the inner space or adding thickness to the shape.
Forgive me if I have experienced an optical confusion. As others have asked please post what you have and upgrade to v17.
Thanks for the help. It's not a translation issue as much as not knowing how to describe an object in engineering/technical terms.
The red object is a chair. I'm looking to just recreate the depression part in an already created ellipse shape (file is attached).
My question was if it's possible to create the depression in a shape I've already created, or if I'd have to start from scratch and recreate the ellipse shape with the depression.
I hope this makes sense and thank you for your help.
I'll upgrade to v17.
