gstraw is on a distinguished road

I have recieved a STEP file (.stp) to use in Gambit. Im cleaning up the geometry and trying to merge faces.after spending 3 days on this i realised the faces were virtual and not real so they need converting. I can convert some of them but then a "fatal error" message appears.

I have 2Gb of this is problem? The faces its failing on are large faces and 3D. the smaller faces are being converted no problem.
So does anyone know how I can solve this problem please?
