How to convert 3D models from Architectural Desktop to Autodesk Inventor?

A - answer If you need to import models from ADT in Inventor as assemblies, you can use the following method.

In Architectural Desktop 2004 (and higher) or in ADT 3.3 with the Productivity Extension switch to a 3D view and use the ConvertTo3dSolids command to convert your 3D objects. Erase the original AEC objects. Save (export) the converted drawing to an AutoCAD format (Save as), not to the default ADT format.

Such .DWG drawing can be then opened in Autodesk Inventor and 3D solids can be selected for import.
