how do I convert imported curves from a simple iges file into lines, arcs and circles?

I am reverse engineering a part on a cmm and want to import the geometry from the cmm to solidworks.  My cmm software exports it's data as an iges file.  On my cmm, I have measured lines, arcs and circles, all in a xy plane (2D geom only).  When I bring the file into solidworks it doesn't read them as lines, arcs and circles, but as imported curves.  Am I possibly missing something in solidworks that would clean up this geometry?  Or import it more cleanly?  Attached is the iges file.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
