By "facet body" I assume you're thinking a Obj. 3DS (Polygon Mesh) or an STL format file? If so then you're out of luck.... see my Smithsonian Thread here: http://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Solid-Edge-Discussion-Forum/Smithsonian-Models/m-p/24...

Re: convert a facet Body to a solid

For the future, you'll be able to convert scan data in .stl format in ST10 with reverse engineering:

Hi @ngardner

 

 

in the meantime (ST9) try to import this STl file into a part.

 

This imported body - at the moment - is not be usable for "anything".

 

But, export this geometry to ICF and import that one again.

 

This - at least it worked for me - does a good job, even with ST9

 

With ST10 - as mentioned - this issue wwill become easier.
