How to Generate Surface Extrusions or Features on PCB Using CW and SW?

Does anyone know how to generate surface copper thickness for a PCB that was imported to SW through CircuitWorks and PADS? Fro example, I have a multilayer, heavy copper PCB with top and bottom layers comprised of 10oz (0.014") copper in specific areas. Since this copper causes offset issues with mechanical assembly, I want to show the extruded copper regions on top and bottom of the PCB when in SolidWorks. I can recreate the copper pours in SW by sketching the regions on the PCB then extruding to 0.014" but this becomes very tedious. Any suggestions
