If you are using an AutoCAD MEP DWG file, have you tried going through the steps in the following blog posting:

Importing 3D geometry from AutoCAD MEP into Revit MEP

I also found the following help topic with information on the type of ACIS objects that Revit supports for import:

Files where exported into dwg format from CATIA. Don't and can't find alot out about this application, however found if I would explode and purge the files I could then turn them into blocks... worked fine for what i needed.. recorded a little macro and 57 files in about 2hrs...
