    thank you, I can create a "solid body" perfectly. I want to export that "solid body" again after saving as ibs and placing in iam (stl -> ipt -> iam -> stl). But the last export is not possible. I get the message: "No valid solid bodie to output to STL", event with using that tool to change the coordination system of the "solid body", it seems with that error, that it´s acctually no "solid body" anymore...can s.o. explain me that error? Thank you!!!
