Autocad 3D solids to Revit Family

I have a .dwg file of a chair made frpm 3D solids from a manufacturer thaI want to use in my Revit model. When I import it into a Revit family, it comes in as a single entity that can not have different materials assigned to the different parts of the chair. 

 

WIth some investigation, it seems that I can possilby use Inventor, loading the .dwg file into Inventor and then export as a .adsk flie and then import the .adsk file into a Revit family.  I do not have Inventor but read something about Inventor Fusion being a part of my Autocad.  I have the Building Design Suite on subscription but can not find the Inventor Fusion in my Autocad program. ( I could not find anything about being able to export .adsk files from the Fusion program.)

 

I would appreciate any feedback on this before I try to download Inventor or if there is a simpler way of doing this,

 

Thanks

Thank you, that is what I needed.

You should be able to control the materials if the parts of the chair are on different layers.

 

Go to Manage > Object Styles > Imported Objects. From here you can assign materials to the different layers.
