    I want to convert this attached objects (polyface mesh) to a solid so I can cut a section of it. Can anyone help?

    I tried a multi-step process I've used in the past which has worked (sometimes) but this is not one of those times. Of the six portions of the model I tried to convert I was only successful with two. The remainder generated errors such as...

    -inconsistent containment of intersection curve
    -system inconsistency processing edge coincidence
    -face containment cannot be determined
    -inconsistent edge-face relationships

    Maybe someone else here will have better luck.
