Import 2D AutoCAD geometry to create 3D parts from...

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.

You can get what you want from our Wikihelp:http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Inventor/enu/2013/Help/0126-Tutorial126/0127-Inventor127/0761-DWG_Data761.

 

Hope that helps.

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.
