While it is very easy to import a DWG file, be careful with how the file has been designed. You can assign wall types on import but if the CAD designer failed to separate the types of walls, you won't be able to set them up right. I have also found some designers use a "wall" not only as a wall but also as a partition, a counter, a door, etc. Just be aware of these challenges. It is a great option if the CAD file is set up right.
