Importing 3D AutoCad files


Recommended Posts

I am working with another architect on 3 storey building design. They unfortunately use AutoCad. They have begun to prepare a massing model of the building and have sent the file to me as a dwg. I can open the file (selected "all 3d" in the import dialogue) but it appears as a series of flat "wall plates" without any vertical component. I guess what I trying to find out is, if it is at all possible to open this file and still retain the concept of walls, roofs windows etc. as 3D elements.

Any suggestions regarding their export procedure or my import procedure would be greatly appreciated.
