Cutting an imported feature


New member
You'll need to make the import feature solid first. Often
imported geometry will be quilts and surfaces that must be merged
together first. Make sure the quilt is closed and select it,
then Edit>Solidify (WF). Then make your cut.

Also if you have some surface you can try to cut with curve

What JD says is really the best solution because if you can t solidify the part the imported feature have bugs inside (surface is not close)
