Hi Guys
I have been working on a drawing for a stool made up of slices of different materials.
All the slices except one are solids for some reason the centre one is surfaces. I would like all slices to be solids before i export for cnc cutting. Selecting change object type is not giving me the solid option, any ideas?
Thanks for your help, please view screen shot video.

Seeing as you have the 90 degree cutout, set up so the apex of that corner is centered, I take it it is doing a butcher block arrangement?

Select the inside edges to form a closed polygon and extrude it to the needed thickness. Use the add solid tool to make the created interior part and outside edges into one solid.

Enjoy
