DWG to 3DS?

Hi

Just wanted some advice on the best way to export dwg solid/surface models from AutoCAD into 3ds Max.

Using the "save as 3ds" function doesn't always cap the ends of solids, so you end up with holes, and it screws up the accuracy of curves, I've tried all the settings. I use the "save as stl" fuction because that seams to give the best results but there must be more direct way.

I know there is software available but they are quite pricey so was wondering if anyone had any tricks or advice to help.

Thanks in advance

Paul
