When an STP file is imported, the first feature appears as a box named "boss-extrude1" followed by the geometry of interest, named Imported1. How to prevent the fist feature from appearing?

I have an STL and an OBJ scan in but I do not know how to edit it in solidworks as I would like to trim a piece off it and potentially add more features.    I cannot seem to edit it at all, everything just errors, very confused.      Any help appreciated

If I check the "set materials" option when saving a part or assembly to .3mf format the resulting file isn't valid. When loading the .3mf file generated by SolidWorks via the lib3mf library I get a warning "Encountered warning #32958 : A components object must not have an object-level PID." and the material information is dropped. I think this is… (Show more)
