Assembling Sweeps

I am attempting to use an object in assembly that is just a few sketches sweeped, but it doesn't come up as a solid object? What can I do?

    Can you share the document via link? This will help us figure out exactly what the problem is.

    Surfaces are native to Onshape, but meshes and stl files do not work well.

    @daniel_irwin183 - Are you sure the sweeps are solid objects? When you create the sweeps, there should be an option to create a "surface" or a solid. It sounds like you want the solid option.
