You may want close the geometry and try to join all the edges together into one (or more) closed polysurface(s). If you do this in a program like Rhinoceros and save it as a STEP, it gets read in SolidWorks as if it is a solid (given the fact that the model does not have naked edges and is not self-intersecting). I hope it works for you... for joining edges in SW really felt to me like a painful chore.

You may want to use featureworks addin in SW. There is a tutorial as well.
