Why can I not get at the mesh on this object?

why.blend (3.7 MB)
I do not know why I can not edit the mesh on this object. ? It will not let me go into edit mode
If I were to create a object that someone else could not edit in edit mode how would I do that ?
Not sure why I would ever do such a thing.

I’m assuming you mean ‘LP Beam 2m.001’?
The object is linked, meaning it’s not part of the scene. To edit it you’ll need to make it local or edit in scene it’s sourcing from.

Ok - I have some things to learn here then. What topic would I study to figure this out ?

I downloaded it from blender kit. Not sure what scene it came from how would I get to that scene ? or how to make it local. Like I said I have a some thing to learn this is foreign to me.
