Stitched surface, no faults....won't turn into a solid

OK. I have created a stitched surface that I cannot turn into a solid. I have used geometry inspector and it says I have no faults. Any idea why this won't create a solid?

When I open it "errors" says there's a parent part-copy missing.

I seldom work with surfaces so I'm wondering how does one turn such a part into a solid?

I forgot to break the link. Try this one.

I show non-stitched edges circled in red.  Most likely didn't stitch because of a gap.

How did you find those non-stitched edges?

Used "Show Non-stiched Edges".

Again, if I may: how does one turn such a part into a solid?

Hi Bruce,



You are absolutely right that we miss the "make base feature of closed surface.

 

I also can't find a hole or missing surface when stitching and I think the body is closed.

 

There was one - not elegant but working - way I found.

 

Create a protrusion somewhere away of Your body followed by a boolean add and everthing together will form a solid body

A following cut can take away the original protrusion.

 

But it might be not the proper way I would like to say!
