Default .dwg files

Hi everyone,
i was wonder'in if there are any Modeler's out there wich would like to give me a hint on how to import an .dwg file correctly.I have not used Maya alot so i am on new ground ( LW user ).I was hop'in to get asfar so i could export a normal model for LW so i get on working in that app, but i was unable to ><
So all i want is to get a fairly detail model for LW or C4d out of Maya ........
Thx for any help

in most cases you will have to duplicate the curves and either loft or planar them. As you loft you can make into a poly mesh instead of leaving it as a nurbs surface. creating walls is simple but if you have furniture depending on the surface it can sometimes be a pain creating surfaces in Maya.
