surfaces to solid from .max file

I am new to solidworks, and I am trying to import a .max model from XfrogPlants Coffee Tree :

It is a coffee plant, and my final goal is to use it in COMSOL Multiphysics to performs some acoustic-solid interaction studies with it.

The problem is that the .max file only has surfaces, and I need everything to be solids, and I can't find out how to edit any of them.

Anyone has any idea how to go around this issue?


I have attached some screenshots. In one of them you can see that the plant stem is indeed hollow, which indicates the whole model is composed of only surfaces.

The .sldprt is also attached.


Any help is very appreciated.
