You can download a copy of SolidView/RP Master from and you can also get
a free 15 day license key from the same site.

SolidView/RP Master will read the .dxf file and
you can use the repair functions to fix the gaps.

A bit of warning: Fixing STL files is like having
your doctor touch up the x-rays instead of doing surgery--
It fixes the symptom, but not the cause!

If this is a one-time problem, you can zip up the
file and email it to me and I'll take care of it for you.
