Importing models from Rhino 5 to Solidworks 2014

I'm having a ton of issues importing models from Rhino 5 into Solidworks 2014. IGES, STEP, 3DM, Parasolid all come in as surfaces and have missing faces, geometry issues making the model unusable. Repairing the model doesn't work 100%. I need them to be a solid so I can make thermo-forms/blisters for packaging.
I use SW and my co-worker used Rhino 5 and models all in surfaces, then converts them into a solid. So no matter what I do, the models have problems. I did however make a cube in Rhino, saved as an IGES and changed the saving option to Solidworks. The model came in black and solid. Anything else though has problems.

Hi, Christiaan Sidell! My name is Kostia. I try to help. Please, send me your model from Rhino in .STL format. I try to recognize it in surfaces or solid bodies with using Geomagis Design X and SolidWorks.
This is example of work on my YouTube channel.
We can contact with you in Skype.
Regards, Kostia!
