Convert an imported part generated drawing to a sketch

Some companies provide 3d drawings of their products but not DWG files. I downloaded the STL and STP files from Actuonix (https://www.actuonix.com/l12-30-50-6-i). I successfully imported them into a composite part and created a drawing of the resulting part. Now, I would like to convert the drawing views into sketches, but I can't find a way.

    Not sure this is what you want, but if you export your drawing as a DXF, you can insert it (minus any text) into a Part Studio sketch.

    That worked beautifully, both with DFX or DWG. Thanks
