Importing part from cad in step format

When I import this file, the meshing tools are not accessible. Do I need to fill in the center hole and then reestablish the hole with Meshing?

  • Not sure about your problem.
    Meshing tools menu operates on meshes and they are only accessible once the mesh is available. It need a mesh.
    Once you generate the mesh (right click step file in the tree view) mesh tools menu will be available when you are on top of components and materials .
    Watch any of the Mecway video tutorials in Youtube.
    Hope this help
