How do I turn a surface model into a solid model? I have done this with the “surface knit” command and selecting “try to form a solid body” but this time this option was greyed-out.
Thanks for your help.
Since you can't upload it, there's not a lot we can do to help. You need to find where your model isn't 'watertight' (or has holes in it). This is likely causing it unable to be knit. I believe the make into solid option only becomes available when the surfaces you select to knit are watertight/able to be made into a solid.
Sounds like you know how to do it but there's a problem with your model not allowing it to be done. Have you tried tools>check, or tools>geometry analaysis to look for reasons it won't convert? Can you upload it?
it has 137 short edges (after running the check).
posting model here can speedup the troubshooting.

Thank you very much for the suggestion but I am not allowed to do so by my employer.
I will read the discussion from your link and try to find something there.
