Q - question

How to read or write DGN files in AutoCAD?

A - answer Functionality for reading and writing DGN files is included in AutoCAD Map and AutoCAD Civil 3D (you can upgrade from AutoCAD to AutoCAD Map or Civil 3D).

You can also try to write DWG directly in MicroStation.

AutoCAD 2008 and higher (including AutoCAD LT) can directly import and underlay DGN V8 files. AutoCAD 2009 and higher supports also the DGN V7 format. See the DGNIMPORT and DGNEXPORT commands.
