How to edit .stl files in Solid Edge ST9?

I’ve successfully scanned my watch upper case. After that I got and stl file for result, which I can’t edit in Solid Edge.
I attached a picture about the problem.
Can I convert this file so I can edit? Is this possible?

If you want to have full editing capability of an STL file you need to update to Solid Edge ST10.

What do you want to edit in the part? If you are using ST9, when you translate the STP/STL into a part they come through as dumb bodies. From then onwards you can 'add' and 'remove; material.

However you cannot modify the original features.

I haven't used ST10 therefore I cannot comment.

I have this problem in SolidWorks. I can't modify STL model.

Hi,
As Francesco has said, this can be done in ST10 as there are specific reverse engineering tools that allow you o recognise regions on the facet (stl) model and build accurate B-rep surfaces on top of it.

Here is an example:
