Modifying STEP files


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.

Appreciate any help

    Have you done a check part to see if the model is corrupt?  If it is, fix the corruption and you should be good.
