I don't have access to full blown ACAD, or Revit versions. Don't know what to tell client? Is the import of Acad Design Review DWF/DWFx files into Autocad or Revit even possible? How is it done?

Yes, you can bring DWF files into AutoCAD as an underlay. You would use the XREF command to complete this task.

This has been done...problem now is that none of the information added through Autodesk Design Review is visible once I import through ACAD..Only the original base DWG that was brought in to ADR can be seen. Everything I marked up to the drawing is lost???

Markup Set Manager is what needs to be used in AutoCAD:

I would like to import some markups produced for another user in a dwf file, but is impossible. I suggest that will be possible in future updates. Thanks.
