There are four recesses that needs to be added to the hollow cores. One on the left side and three on the right side. 

Go to Structure - Model - Model Lines to start the command.

Draw lines over all four recesses.

Go to IMPACT - Components - Draw Recess to start the command.

Start to add the recess no. 3 (Figure 1). Note that it is placed in between two slabs. This means that the recess needs to be added once for each slab. 

Select the option 'User Defined' and click on 'Pick Face'.

Select the top face of the left slab. If it's tricky to find the top face, just place the cursor on top of the slab and use the tab key on the keyboard until you have the top highlighted.

The recess is added to the left slab. Repeat the steps to add it to the right slab as well. After that recess is added, continue to add recesses to 1,2, and 4 (Figure 1). End with deleting the model lines.
