Why do parts only show in wireframe?
Even simple extrusions do this, no matter what settings I use.
I am new at this program, Student Edition.
Did you hide your part by any chance? Check if this option is set correctly or try CTRL+SHIFT+TAB to highlight all hidden objects.
Just tried the CTRL+SHIFT+TAB, it did hide the wireframe, but did not make it visible again. Also, my Features tree is different, there is an "eye" to click to perform this function. In either case, I cannot see anything but wireframe on any parts I load into the program.
You can access the menu on my picture by clicking the arrow icon on the right top side of your feature tree, but that will not resolve your issue as I can see from you picture that your solid body is not hidden. As glenn mentioned, it might be caused by graphic card issues.
There's a good chance your graphics card isn't compatible with SW. See Why am I getting weird graphics issues?
