Q - question

3ds Max reports the error eNotImplementedYet on DWG import.

A - answer When you try to import a AutoCAD DWG file into Autodesk 3ds Max, it reports an "Import Problem":
Unable to open:  
The error code reported is eNotImplementedYet  
The problem is most probably caused by a DWG file format which is not supported in your version of 3ds Max - you are e.g. importing a DWG format of AutoCAD 2010 to 3ds Max 2009.

Save your DWG file in AutoCAD to an older format (with SAVEAS), or convert the file to an older version with the free tool "Autodesk DWG TrueView", or upgrade your 3ds Max to a compatible version.

Also make sure that the filename or its path does not contain non-ASCII characters - e.g. cyrillic or chinese.
