Trying to work with an imported STL file. It turns into a mesh, which I can't then perform boolean operations on.

All I really want to do is convert an existing model into a kind of bass-relief by cutting off the rear and adding it to solid base.

This should be so simple. What am I missing?

If you have less than 2000 facets (V10 allows 4000) you can use "Edit" -> "Change Object Type". More than that use The "Stitch" tool. An Option button will appear in the data window, make any selections there, this may take a while.
