What kind of tool paths are you trying to create?
If you are doing 2Axis mill programs then you need regular line geometry, so you can do line-joins and pick the ends of the solid segments, and then add any arcs or fillets you want. Then when you do 2axis pocketing or profiling you select the lines/arcs as your geometry.
If you are doing 3axis then you can select your solid model directly as your geometry.
I have solidworks 2011 and BobCad V24, opening a .sldprt file in bobcad works fine for me.
