I believe stl models can be stitched up and made solid, but it will be a faceted solid at best. Your not going to be able to restore the original primitives and smooth surfaces.

1. Save the stl file in ProE as Shrinkwrap file


or


2. Use Restyle feature to project surfaces on STL Facet


or


3. Use ca you style feature.

thanks for the info ra_inder, i had done this shrinkwrap option, which either ends up with huge files for good resolution, or small file size with bad surfaces. and restyle i couldn't as my system doesn't have this license. anyway thanks for your reply
