Inventor is a 2D to 3D tool.  You create 2D sketches and Inventor helps you turn them into 3D models.  Or perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you're asking for.  Please provide more detail.

Ah, now I understand.  I have not used this tool in previous versions, but I would not trust the results unless you trust the AutoCAD drawings to be absolutely accurate.

No, this has not been updated to support Inventor 2013 yet. Once it is I will give an update on my blog.
