How to convert 3D CAD solids to Revit parametric BIM families?

A - answer A standard import of 3D solids from DWG and other CAD formats does not allow exploding and editation in Revit projects.

Using the import in the in-place component mode can help to bring in such 3D models and edit them in Revit. By adding reference planes and parameters you can convert the imported 3D model to a standard Revit parametric 3D family (.RFA file).

See the video illustrating the conversion process from an AutoCAD 3D model (retaining wall) from a DWG block to a RFA family:
