Export board profile/copper to PADS

I am trying to export a copper shape and PCB profile as a DXF to PADS from a part that has been made in Solidworks.  I do not have access to circuitworks. We have been proceeding with the technique describedhere unsuccessfully. This involved selecting each line in PADS, joining and then closing them.  However, we still received self-intersecting polygon errors and the breaks are still often present.


Does anyone have any experience export DXFs from Solidworks to use as a board profile or copper shape in PADS?


Thanks for your help
