Unable to upload/open .dwg format files to fusion 360

I would like to import the .dwg 3D CAD files (CAD Data (DZR / DXS XLF Series 3D)) from the link below to fusion 360.

 

https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/proaudio/speakers/dzr_dxs_xlf/downloads.html#product-tabs

 

When trying to upload the dwg. files directly in fusion 360 it results in "status failure" combined with a translation report that says basically nothing.

 

I have tried to convert the files to .dxf format through online conversion tools, DWG TrueView and QCAD without any success. When uploading the files in TrueView it gives an error saying that NLS files are missing, eventhough the files can be opened properly in TrueView. Although, when the files seems to be successfully converted to .dxf, from no mater which tool, the upload (wheater it is from the data panel, the file toolbar och the insert tool) in fusion 360 gets completed but the files are empty when opened.

 

Is it possible to open such files in fusion 360? If so, how can it be done?

I opened one file in Rhino3d without any problem and it shows the DWG is in 2000 format so would have expected Fusion to open it. There have been a few reports of problems with uploads at the moment so could be just that. How did you try importing, did you use Upload in Fusion's data panel?

Looking closer in Rhino I can see I only have meshes and they have no thickness. I've seen this before when DWG files contain regions. Rhino doesn't support them and converts them to meshes and Fusion also doesn't support them.

 

Maybe @TheCADWhisperer can investigate? I've attached one of the DWGs.

No Solid Bodies in the file.

Will have to edit the 3D Faces in AutoCAD first to get Solid Bodies.
