IGES or STEP from SolidWorks

I'm trying to export complex SolidWorks models to solid iges models. When I try to bring them back into SolidWorks, there are missing faces and there are gaps that cannot be repaired. In some cases, the STEP file comes back into SW clean and in others, neither format works. I've tried to max out the image quality and I get the same results. Near as I can tell, the SW models are fine--complex, but fine.

I need to be able to send these files to a mold shop who uses ProE. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
