    surface to solid fails (cannot modify surface)

    Yannik Kenzeler

      Hi everyone,


      I know this question has been asked frequently, but i could not find a correct way to apply this to my situation.

      I am trying to convert a surface-import to a solid part in solidworks.

      I have tried to knit and thicken the object, I also tried to save it as a .step and open it again but it won't work.

      It's a pretty complicated part (from an industrial robot) i downloaded from the vendor, so i can't change the drawings.


      Is there another way to get it solid what i haven't tried yet?


      Thanks in advance,
