Crazy? Or Possible?

Hey Guys,


I had an idea, and wanted to throw this out there to see if it is even possible. 


I need to convert a bunch of DWG's to Revit going through Inventor to use the "Shrinkwrap" feature.  I was thinking I could write a windows macro to automate this process.  Is that possible?

Not sure if this will be possible through macros.


You can automate AutoCAD and Inventor using COM APIs, from .NET (VB.NET/C#), but Revit will not accept that. So one alternative can be: from Revit in-process API, call AutoCAD and Inventor COM out-of-process APIs.
