Import STL file (and edit) in SolidWorks

All,

 

I have searched the forums and found little on tools which will allow users to edit STL files in SolidWorks. I am attempting to edit a file downloaded off Makerbot's Thingiverse site and cannot get SolidWorks to recognize any features or give me the ability to measure any faces. I have tried using Scan to 3D as some have recommended with no success.

 

If there is a built in function in SolidWorks to give me the ability to recognize stl file feature that would be great. Otherwise if there is a downloadable program which would allow me to save as a format which SolidWorks can then recognize, that would be great as well.

 

Thanks for the help.
