DWG conversion

Hello,
I have a school project and I have received this .dwg file. I made a few settings so that archicad can open my file and I noticed that when I tick "Prefer Drawing Unit definition in DXF/DWG file" the meshes look ok in 2d and 3d but when I measure the building the scale is all wrong. If I don`t tick the box, the project is in the right scale but the mesh lines look weird in 2d, although in 3d the project looks fine. Here are the links to some screenshots with everything I just said.

Just an idea: those "artifacts" may be affected by the "Set Scale Factor for importing Texts and Arrowheads" options. Try to experiment with those radio buttons and see if that makes any difference. Try to set a greater scale (like 1:1000) or smaller scale (like 1:10, 1:1) to see if that makes any difference.

P.S.: I have renamed the title of the topic to a more useful "DWG conversion".

P.S. 2.: I have just noticed you posted this question 3 times in 3 different forums. Please refrain from doing that in the future, it is considered spamming. If someone knows the answer and is willing to help, they will answer to a single post.
I have deleted the other two duplicate posts in the other forums.

Hello,
Can you advise how to import custom linetypes from AutoCAD into my ArchiCAD workspace? I have to import public utility design with all custom linetypes for firewater, rain drainage, sewage, etc. Practically linetypes with letters.
Thanks!
