I seem to be having trouble altering a step file. When I go to a extrude cut a surface of a model it removes the area but converts my part to a surface model. It then will not allow me to add material to the part. I'm curious as to why this is happening and is there a way to stop it doing so.
No I am certain they picked the solid option, (I watched them choose it ). The part is fine when it is imported in, the solid part symbol comes up beside the part name. The symbol changes when I alter the part. I have also got them to create an iges file, it seems to a little better but in certain cases it does the same thing. I’m positive it is something I’m doing that is causing it to change from a solid model to a surface model, but I’m not sure why it is doing it.
