Exporting Shapes to AutoCAD

Hey all,
Is there any way to export 3-D shapes of members to AutoCAD from RISA 3-D? I know it is possible to export a 3-D wireframe model, but I'm curious to see if a full model with 3-D members is possible.
Thanks in advance!

RE: Exporting Shapes to AutoCAD

I don't think it can be done in AutoCAD, but it can be done with other drafting programs (such as Structural Desktop which operates inside of AutoCAD).  

RISA-3D can export SDNF, CIS/2, Revit, Structural Desktop and such.  These file formats all contain shape information for 3D plotting of the members and such.  But, DXF files do not contain this information.
