You didn't really provide enough info to help you much (such as what was your problem and what kind of mesh do you even want?), but I was curious so I opened the file...

Should there be more than this? (is that what you meant by Face lost? Is something missing?)


Is your problem that you have a bad model?

Step is the second worst format out there (IGES is worse), if you output this from a CAD package, see if they can output ACIS (best for Gambit since it has an ACIS kernel) or Parasolid (Best for DesignModeler for similar reasons)

If you output in a better format your downstream problems may go away
