Can't upload line geometry in ANSYS

I am following the truss problem from the EdX Hands-on Introduction to Engineering Simulation course. We are supposed to create a line geometry in SpaceClaim and open the lines in Mechanical. I've read in other forums that line geometry needs to be converted to a surface using Pull or 3D Mode in order to open geometry in Mechanical, but the instructor was able to open his lines in Mechanical without creating a surface. When I try to follow his instructions (i.e. open the line structure in Mechanical with no surface) I get errors:

1. PlugIn Error: Failed to import assembly from SpaceClaim. No bodies to transfer.

2. Attach failed.

How can I open just the lines in Mechanical without creating a surface? Please help!
