I doubt this is possible but figure it can't hurt to ask.  Is it possible to import shapes from an AutoCAD file into CourseForge?  I have some courses I did for older games where I drew shapes in AutoCAD and it would be nice If I can skip the step of redrawing them here if possible.

The easiest method to try is to just drag your file into your Unity project panel and see if it imports and shows up correctly. You may have to tweak it in the inspector panel if it needs colliders. Sometimes the object scaling may not be correct as well but can be fixed easily.

If it's a .dae file, I believe it will import.

Thanks, the original files are DWG.  I also have them converted to DXF as that is what the other game needed to import them.  I imagine even if Unity can't import these files there's something I could convert them into to import them.  Getting CourseForge to recognize them so I can say this shape is fairway and that shape is green, etc. is where I figure to get stuck.  I don't really know much about how CourseForge runs on top of Unity like some of you guys do so I was looking to see if anyone thought that was possible.  If so I can investigate the initial part of getting them into Unity further myself.
