How to turn mesh to part or some other solution
I recently took a model off of thingiverce to incorporate it into a design that I had made. I imported the model into Onshape and found that it was a mesh. My plan had been to get the two separate parts and then bind them in assembly but found that I could not do this because meshes cannot be used in assembly. I am fairly new to 3D design and Onshape and didn't know if there was a way to do this in Onshape or some other software. Also if I was able to combine them would there be an issue with not being able to print a design with mesh? Thanks!
