Opening a DWG file - empty 3D window!

Not applicable

I got a DWG-file from the architect. I open it as a normal projekt, and it converts just fine to 2D, but when I try to view it as 3D, the 3D window is empty!

What do I do wrong?

You have to open the DWG file as an object if you want see the 3D information. "file/libraries and objects/open object"

I did that, and then I did get something in the 3D window, but it was still in 2D. What do I do wrong??

This question has been answered before, you can search for the specifics. The trick is opening the DWG as a library Object, under File-Library -Open object.

Provided that there is 3D information in the file.
