The slide jaw part doesn't have a face in front or back. Is there a way to use existing lines and points to create faces in front and back?
you can use "convert entities" to copy lines - By the way, missing parts from your assembly in the zip folder
Is there a way to fill in the spaces where there should be faces?
Yes, select a closed profile and use Planner Surface
Or even put a plane on the face and work from there. Glad to know that there are other was from the 2 above.
Unless your intention is to learn surfacing, I'd find it easier to delete the Surface-Extrude1, keep its sketch, and use its sketch to create a Boss-Extrude instead.
If you're better off with surfaces instead of solids, then you still do not need an additional feature to enclose the ends. Select [_] Cap end within the Surface-Extrude feature:
If you want both ends capped, select Direction 2, Blind, Distance zero, and cap its end also.
I'd bet you are coming from AutoCad or a surface modeler. Probably going to need to forget a lot of what you know about modeling and do it the SW way or you will struggle unnecessarily. You have to retrain your brain to think solids and sketches, not lines and surfaces.
I can't resist this one!
Stick your tongue out and squint your eyes!
Is that your face or your.......... LOL

I love "lemons". That's one of the reasons we bought SW.
