How to convert a pyramid made of 3D faces to a 3D solid?

A - answer A pyramid (tetrahedron), box, polyhedron or other 3D geometry consisting of a "watertight" shell of 3D faces can be converted to solid 3D body in AutoCAD with a sequence of commands _CONVTOSURFACE and then _SURFSCULPT. This will convert a "paper" model (shell) to a "wooden" model (volume, solid).
