Import DXF mesh for analysis

I am trying to analyze a panelized steel sculpture. The model exists as a dxf, and I can successfully import it. However, I cannot get even a very simple version to converge. 

Is there a procedure for importing DXF meshes that will allow you to create a successful analysis model?

I can provide the dxf if need be...

 

Thank you!

I guess you need to ensure that all the nodes / bars are joined correctly? Or user larger model tolerance?
