Default Design Modeler conversion to STL

Hi There

I have a packing of spherical particles with overlaps. I want to get a clean stl file out of Ansys DesignModeler. I export a step file and then convert it to stl in Solid Edge or Solid Works both of them fail to fill the overlaps. I get an stl with the overlap between particles all empty. How can I get a perfectly filled stl with no gap in the overlaps?

Thank You,
