But has it as an option to open it. I also tried PDF'ing the CAD file and opening in Illustrator but my shapes are construed. What do I do?

It's pretty big as well. Finish size is 61.75 x 122.125 inches.
Can't I just export an EPS file of my CAD file?
I ask all this because I need to fill these shapes with black and then send it to our RIP software. Anyone familiar with TOPAZ RIP?

What version of Illustrator and what version of Autocad?
Could it be that your version of Autocad is newer than your version of Illustrator, so it's not able to open the file?
Have you tried saving your CAD file down to 2000 format?

AutoCAD LT 2008, Adobe Illustrator CS2
Let me try saving it down...

That did it! Thanks, Cad64! I saved the file as DXF 2000 and it opened just fine. I did have to scale it, though.
