you are correct you cannot directly translate your 2d autocad files into revit files HTH

I would "link" the CAD file into Revit rather than import it. There is a "link" box that you can check and the link then acts like an xref. When you are done using the ACAD file then go to "manage links" and delete it or simply select the linked image and hit the delete button. Linking the file in will ensure that no unwanted remnants of a CAD file remain in the Revit file. Tom
