I am deriving a part from an assembly. After I remove parts that I don't want included in the derived part, the part is automatically switching to a surface part. I was initially trying to use the hole and extrude functions and kept getting errors. I saw that the part was being made into a surface part. How can I fix this? Thanks in advance!
I'm running Autodesk Inventor Professional 2013.
When you Derive Component there is an option to derive as Solid or Composite Surface. I think the default is as Composite Surface body. SImply edit and change.
I've tried to edit the part, but composite surface wasn't selected. I had derived other parts before this one and they came out fine. It just seems to be this part. I never changed the setting either.

It turned out that a weld was causing the problem. Once I excluded the weld from my part, it worked fine.
