Need some help with an awkward mesh

Recommended Posts

I've gotten a model of a X-37b that I need to edit to insert a cylinder into its back for wind tunnel testing. However, the model was delivered in a mesh format, and I cannot perform the necessary edits on it. The easiest and most familiar way for me would be to convert the object to a single solid (rather than the mesh or the 5,354 3D polygons it is, depending on the moment) and make some easy subtractions, but I seem unable to do that.


Any help? Can I convert the object from a mesh to a solid, or another format to a solid? Is there anything that can be done?
