I believe 3DS Max will take a straight transfer from AutoCAD, same company.

Blender takes .stl directly. No conversion.

I haven't used autocad for this before, but what is the part you are getting stuck on after opening the file in blender?

I mostly build in sketchup, then import into blender, so there may be some similarities.

If I create the model on layers such as foundation, walls, door, roof, the STL format brings in the entire model as one solid model with all the layers combined together.   I really just don't know blender at all so I don't know if what I'm able to import works or not.   I try to use the tutorial with my STL import and I cannot select the separate faces, nothing seems to function like the tutorial suggests.

Well... @theonlywanderer
One of the things I do first in Blender is combining all parts to one model anyway.
Then, when texturing, I pick out the pieces I want.

Let me look at the stl-file. You have to PM me. You can't attach files here.

I sent you two test STL files.
