Opening a Revit drawing in Archicad 21

I am trying to open a .dwg Revit file in Archicad 21. Some of the drawing is there, but other parts are missing.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Dwg is not a revit file dut an Autodesk file
There is no BIM consideration into a dwg
First of all what about the dwg translator export since the Autodesk software?
Is it only drawing ? or drawing with layout ?
Which dwg translator did you use with AC21 ?
What are the things you think you lost when opening this dwg file?

If possible try to get an ifc export from Revit, then you can open the ifc file in ARCHICAD.

Good Idea to get the 3D model
But IFC don't have any 2D inside with the exception of some minor graphic information

Is this the reason why REVIT shows everything as generic or not real when importing a IFC File? You can see the Floor Plan and 3D Model in REVIT, but everything is imported as a rebar material...any help?

Check your IFC import settings for how it translates materials. It can be set to make everything an existing uniform material, or create a new material for each imported one.
