How Can I change protected drawings?



I have a project at school. I will design Francis Turbine and verify my design with CFD. For CFD program, I must have solid model of turbine. I have but It must be change to my value. I have tried but I couldn't change values and I have learned this solid model is protected.
So, How can I remove this protection? How can I change to values ? Can I change If I use another program?

Thank you.
