Hello,
I have CT scanned an object at my local hospital, and I want to convert the object to an editable part in SolidWorks.

So far, I've used the program 3D Slicer to create a label map of the object and exported it to an .STL format.

However, it doesn't seem to be editable at all when I import the file into SolidWorks. It displays the object, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but I want to be able to modify it before I send it to the machine shop.

I've never used SolidWorks before, but from what I've read online here
it doesn't seem that STL is editable once imported into SolidWorks?

3D Slicer doesn't have any way to export to Solidworks format.

How can I turn my STL model into a 3D model that I can modify?

There is a SolidWorks utility that might help you : ScanTo3D
