Importing Geometry (from Solidworks)

I have a model made in solid works, when I save it (.IGS) and import it one segment is imported as a solid while the other segments appear as surfaces, how do i get them all to import as surfaces?

    You can select a face on the solid body, use Copy and Paste and you will have a surface as well as the solid. When you have done this for each face of the solid, you can delete the solid.

    select all necessary surfaces. then use ctrl + c and ctrl + v to copy these faces.

    once you copy necessary faces, you can delete original one. if some faces are missing, you can create those in spaceclaim.
