Is there a tutorial for importing 2D AutoCAD geomtetry and using it as a basis for your 3D sketches? I'm sure in a demo somewhere I saw someone using 2D layouts to quickly start creating 3D geometry from.

 

To clarify i'm not referring to the add-in in AutoCAD Labs but the actual process to do this using Inventor tools.

One neat thing, which I don't believe is mentioned in the tutorial, is that you can select which Layers you want to import. I use that trick to keep multiple sketches in a single DWG.
