There is a firm out there selling a converter: I understand their support leaves a lot to be desired. Try a Google search and see if they are still around.

 

Have you tried just attaching a DWF inside a DWG? You just need a relatively recent version of AutoCAD or LT.

I'm using AutoCAD 2012.

 

How do I attach a DWF file to a DWG file?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

In AutoCAD 2012, use DWFATTACH command.

OK, I did that and it inserted the DWF file in to my AutoCAD drawing but everything is on "Layer 0".

 

I guess I should be glad that I can insert the DWF drawing, is there anyway to import the layers?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Look up and use DWFLAYERS or ULAYERS commands.

How do you convert a dwfx to a dwg? (I'm working with 2007)

There are some 3rd party programs you can buy that promise to do so: use your favorite Internet Search Engine to find them.
