Stuck after importing 3D tublar centerline model

LeoLeo Member Posts: 1
I want to detail out a tubular based chassis model for a vehicle. I have an existing centerline model (wireframe) in a parasolid format external to onshape. When I import the parasolid line model into onshape, I can see the preview of the model (upper right corner). To me, I assume that means onshape can recognize the model after translation. However, when I open the part/document up, I can not see or work with any of the lines. The first thing I want to do is to sweep along the lines to build the 3D tubular model. Any ideas of how to begin?
