Can't understand why I can't enclose my surfaces properly

Hi There everyone,

I am trying to enclose a ramp-like shape but the Enclose tool does not like the input of the surfaces. Does anyone see why ?

Thank you in advance for any advice :smile:

    you may want to you aplly Fill command first to create a closed volume and use Enclose to make solid from a closed volume by selecting bouding faces

    Still can’t get enclose to work. Maybe I have built this shape wrong. When I look at the amount of surfaces bottom left in the surfaces tab it says I only have three. But the closed volume consists of 5. I think I have screwed up! Maybe I’ll start again ! 

    Any my tips would be great. Thanks to konstantin for the fill tool advice. Do you think I’m using the enclose tool wrong ?
