No ‘Imprint Faces’ Operation option when creating a Sphere in Design Modeler

      Hi,

      I've imported geometry into Mechanical (from SolidWorks).

      In Design Modeler, I've clicked Create > Primitives > Sphere. For Operation, I need to select 'Imprint Faces' but the option does not appear (see attached screenshot). Is this a limitation of important geometry from a file instead of creating it within Design Modeler?

      Thanks.

      imprint faces would only work if there are bodies that are not added as frozen. In other words, you would need to import the CAD model using "Add Material".

      So, alternatively, I could've modeled it as one body instead of two?
