Can you export an stl of the surface? One issue is whether the student licence can deal with the number of facets.

Use SpaceClaim to open the STL file. It will be a facet body and there are no limits on how many facets. If you are on a full license (not the Student license) you can convert the STL to a Solid by simply RMB on the facet body and a menu pops up. The problem for the Student license is that each facet becomes a face and there is a 300 face limit on the Student license.

If you check the spacing in Mech is it 10m exactly? 253mm suggests it's converted to inches somehow but retained metric dimensions?

If you import an STL file into SpaceClaim, you can RMB on the Facet Body and Convert to Solid. Then you can use the Design tool to Scale the solid body up to the correct dimension. Since it is a solid, you can subtract it from another solid.

What's RMB stand for? I selected all facets and covert to solid(merge facets).

Right Mouse Button (RMB) pops up the menu to Convert to Solid.

Thank both of you! Problem solved.
