Check your export options.

Thank you mvoss

what did you mean by broken. I just saved the file before exiting AUTOCAD as .dwg. This extention is the defult extention in AUTOCAD.

broken means not readable for SolidWorks,DesignModeler and ICEM ... but i can view a squared-like looking surface when i view it in a dwg- viewer which is kind of strange. Canīt you just change the extension to .xt or step or iges and import those "official" export types?
