Converting mesh imported into SW into a surface

I have a keyboard frame and require an editable solid, currently the imported mesh is useless for use and I cannot find a solution. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    what was the original file type? There is nothing you can do with the mesh1 feature. It wouldnt be too hard to replicate it, but currently its only a "graphic" in the screen. If the original file was an .stl file you can select "Options" from the open dialog and make sure you import as a "Solid Body" and not a graphics body. You can also go to Tools>Add-ins and turn on "ScanTo3D" and have some options to work with a mesh. Once you turn on ScanTo3D you can right-click on your mesh1 and enter the meshPrep wizard. For a part this simple i would suggest trying to open it as a Solid depending on the original file type.
