Hi

 

I have not analysed everything, but to fix your immediate issue.

 

Expand the tree, find the solid body listed under "Surface Bodies", RMB and enable visibilty.

The reason this happened was the "Delete Face" feature. This converted the solid body into a surface Body.

 

Try use the Shell feature instead.
