Converting scanned file to native solidworks part

I have been pulling my hair out for the last several weeks trying to manipulate this scanned part file in to an editable native solidworks part. I have tried exporting it and reimporting it as a parasolid and step file but the resultant file sizes are so large that the program crashes or the part is uneditable (<300mb). The part has in excess of 200k faces when opened as an STL. I am willing to pay a nominal yet reasonable fee to anyone who can produce a usable solidworks file for me. By usable I mean it needs to be editable, maintain original geometry, and be a size that my computer is able to process. 90mb seems to be the approximate threshold. I will pay for a usable file but I'm far more interested in learning how to produce the file myself, if possible. I have posted a link to my grabCAD account to access the file. It is the smaller STL file. The massive STEP file is unusable. Thank you solidworks community in advance for any tips or advice you may have for me as well.
