I am currenly having an issue when I try to edit a drawing on inventor 13'. pretty much everything I imported from sketchup is a mesh, there are a few elements of solids because I added a few things on autoCAD eng. I would like to know if there is a way to make the meshes into soilds or if there is a work-around.

you can try the command _CONVTOSOLID (>>>details<<<), there are some cases when this works. In case of open surface objects (even very small gaps between neighboured surfaces) the algorythm has no chance.

Did you use the SKP to DWG converter, or something else to import the content?


Not sure if it's a viable option for you... .
