Pink Lines when opening .iges or .step files

Using WF 3.0 (Yes, out of date I know). I'm opening an .iges file and when changed to anything but shading all the surfaces are pink. I've tried to thicken the part but I believe the surfaces are small and they intersect, thicken fails. I've also, in the past used solidify and that seemed to work but with this part I do not have that option. Any other ideas on how to solve this problem? I've searched high and low for an answer but can't seem to find one. Thanks!

Re: Pink Lines when opening .iges or .step files

Look up Import Data Doctor instructions. The model you have is not a valid solid, which is why it is pink. Import Data Doctor is used to fill gaps, remove loose surfaces, and generally fix the model.

I think it is available if you select the imported item and then Redefine.
