dwg import to 3rd party applications

Hi,

I'm pretty new here so sorry for possibly a very dumb question: what is the best way to read the content of a .dwg file (generated from Revit or any other Autodesk SW) in a my own application? Is the RealDWG only possible solution or does Revit API (AutoCAD API, etc.) provide this kind of functionality as well? I'm kind of confused whether the APIs are only for Autodesk plugins or if they may be used in non-Autodesk apps...

The APIs extends the functionality of Autodesk products, so they are supposed to be used with Autodesk products, instead of independant applications. 

But you can certainly write an exporter using the APIs to export the DWG into your own application.
