modifying STL files in Solidworks 2005

Discussion created by Guest on Oct 30, 2006
Hello, im fairly new to solidworks coming from a background of using Autodesk Inventor. My problem is when using a 3D scanner to produce an STL file, I am trying to modify the model in in solidworks in terms of creating a solid object that can be modified, measured etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
