I'm sure some of you have already come across this issue but I thought I would share my recent experience with importing DWG files. I've been doing this a while and have never come across this issue. While importing a DWG file I kept getting this strange result of most everything coming in as extruded objects. I went back to a DWG clone software and discovered that the offending objects all had a thickness assigned to them. Once I set the thickness to zero and imported again the issue was resolved.
