Best Import Settings for DWG Files

Recommended Posts

Recently I've been working with a lot of AutoCAD files.  Obviously as a native file, navigation/editing/modeling functions all perform very well in AutoCAD.  But when I try to import the DWG into VWX2017, it is crazy slow and unmanageable.  FYI - a 75MB dwg file turns into a 400+MB vwx file.  I can tell this is caused by VWX turning AC objects into thousands of polygons.  Being more comfortable in VWX, I would like to work there.  Are there any DWG import settings that will cut down on the "thousands of polygons" issue but still retain the models integrity?
