We have maya 2012 and autocad 2013. Does direct connect 2011 allow you to import autocad dwg files into maya? If not, has Autodesk updated direct connect as a maya/autocad plug in so we can use dwgs between the two programs? I can't get support to answer this, they keep saying "we monitor the forums, ask there." So, here goes! Autodesk ought to take a lesson from zbrush, who imports/exports with one button now! Amazing that you can buy two programs this expensive and not be able to get a simple question answered without paying! Please help, I'm a lowly artist.
AutoCAD 2013 has a new DWG-format, so I don't think that older applications will be able to open that files. Try to use command _SAVEAS and change the fileformat to DWG2010, then your Maya should be able to open it.

>> Does maya support DXF file?
Please ask in the Maya-forum >>>there<<<, they should know that Even more better when asking also tell them what you have tried yet and what problems you had in your tries.
At least looking to >>>this list<<<, it should read DXF.
