SpaceClaim appears to be able to open complex STL files as solids and then you can save as an iges to open in solidworks. No sure if this really helps but for the rest of the month you can get SpaceClaim from the challenge.

If the part is not much complicated you can open it as Solid model by changing one option.

The other way is to open the file in Meshlab (Open Source tool) and then export it as dxf which can be used in SolidWorks.
