The geometry seems to be littered with seams. I don't think it'll ever knit.
I would suggest checking your host system again and try exporting a .STEP
1. You are going to have to get cleaner surfaces into solidworks. The edges do not align well enough for it to ever knit. Sometimes Tools>Import Diagnostics can fix some small discrepancies, but these are pretty large; it did not do anything. Also, Surface-Imported119 is throwing an error for me, you might want to delete that, and use the Insert>Surface>Fill Surface to fill that in (after you knit the rest together). And yes, you can use the Insert>Surface>Fill tool to create the end caps for your CFD.
So, back to the big question, how do you fix the gaps? I would say there should be some way to clean up your surfaces in the earlier software you used to capture the 3D data. I am un-familiar with 3-matic, or how it works, but I would hope that this type of software could produce better surfaces that actually intersect. It could also have to do with your file translation somewhere...
I don't know what the student version has, or what you can access too, but SW Premium comes with ScanTo3D which can actually import directly your 3D data.
Maybe someone more familiar with 3-matic, or scanning in general, can help you out with that.
