Need to fill a body but it is unable to knit

I am working with SolidWords 2008 SP2.1

I imported an .igs file from 3-matic, which I used to convert a .wrl file into a .igs to form part using their CAD link option. I imported the part into solidworks and then saved it as a parasolid (.xmt)

My big problem: Now I have just the outer surface, but I need it to be a solid to import into my CFD solver. I have tried knitting the surface, because there are multiple edges and surfaces, but there is constantly a Rebuild error every time I try to knit the sufrace.
Also, if I am able to somehow knit/sew the surfaces together will the fill function fill my surfaces?

Attached is my parasolid. Hope that was specific enough for some feedback.
