I am a newbie in microstation 3D . I am attaching a dgn file that I am trying to make a into a solid.
I used two method.
first I use convert to solid but it failed.- got a message "unable to convert to solid " which is not useful message.
I tried a few methods . I selected all the surfaces and also leave boths ends unselected. both failed.
2) I tried to use loft surface using guide edges. I get a message unable to perform operation.
Can some expert tell me what is wrong ?

You will have to merge al the surfaces together before converting to a solid, so they enclose some volume.
Use the "Stitch Surfaces" tool. select all the surface and stitch them into 1 closed surface
You can then use the convert to solid tool to convert the surface to a smart solid

You should be able to use Loft By Sections option.
From the Solids tools use Convert to Solid to convert it to a Smart Solid.
I hope this helps.
I'm not sure why that isn't working for you.
Here's a video screen capture showing the method I explained in my previous post.
