I found today a post from a friend (Nuno) asking how to solve this issue, converting an .stl to solid .ipt.
Then I remembered that I found something in the past regarding this conversion... Yeap! it was in Autodesk Labs

So let me explain with couple of easy steps how this works...

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!!!
