Can someone please tell me why surfaces aren't showing up in my drawing?

Although a drawing will show a surface in wireframe, SolidWorks can not render (shade) a part without "solid" geometry.
To work around this, you can simply create a feature(Insert/Boss,Base/Thicken) with the surface and specify a sliver thin .001" thickness, for example.

I was afraid of that.

You can in the drawing use the insert --> Model items and choose to import the surfaces.
See you all at SWW2006

I thought insert model items had an option to import surfaces & not just dimensions? or were you talking about shading the drawing view & the surfaces do not shade?
hope this points you in the right direction Steve T.
