    Getting 3D CAD Lines Into Revit

    Hey everyone,

    So I thought this would be a pretty simple task but I am having a heck of a time trying to get a CAD file with 3D Polylines to show up in Revit. I know the polylines need to be exploded to regular lines but that hasn't proven to be any more successful. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I'm uploading the original file to Dropbox if anyone would like to take a look.

    Thanks in advance!

    I know that in order to make a DWG cuttable, you have to bring it into a Family instead of a Project.
    Would that help your issue?

      I did try putting it into a conceptual mass environment. The problem is whenever I bring it in none of the lines are even visible.

        Any chance you'd want to save down to an earlier version? I don't have 2018 installed yet.

          Try this: in a project go to Architecture>Component>Model In-Place> select Generic Models as a category then in edit mode go to Insert>Link CAD>Finish Model.
          Revit add-ins: Purger (delete UNUSED and selected line patterns & line styles, find & delete CAD), Rooms To Spaces, Schedule Utilities (Calculated Values/Combined Parameters To Tags, reuse view filter rules in schedule filters), View Filter Manager (with bunch of other features) at Revit Exchange Apps, View Filter Manager ML

            Mass category is turned on in the view?
            As Artejon has suggested, I've used Generic families to make 3D dwg work in Revit.
