Translucent STEP files??

I have downloaded a file from GrabCAD in the form of STEP. Upon importing into Solid Edge, the part is translucent. How do I set this part to be opaque?

 

Cheers,

Nevin

Hi there Nevin,

 

This normally indicates that the imported geometry is not a fully enclosed solid....could you post a screen capture of what you see, including the pathfinder, as this will also reveal what is going on.

Also, if it's multibody only the active body will be completely opaque.
