How can I import an ESRI shape file in 2013?  Are the map commands no longer available?

The easiest way is just drag and drop the SHP file into the AutoCAD/C3D editor.

 

The MAP functionality is still there if you want to navigate the menus and/or use the old legacy commands. Switch your workspace to "Planning and Analysis".

Did you just try _MAPIMPORT or _MAPIMPORT4  or _MAPCONNECT ?

The mapimport worked.  I was trying that before and kept getting a fatal error so I'm not sure what changed.  Thanks
