Looking at, this might be the case for DXF > r12 regarding 3DSOLID.
(the three dots represents what is possible with the DXF importer included in blender, the other ones are supported by the Personal Edition offered on that site)

DXF>r12 objects:
lll lll   lll lll  - ELLIPSE
lll lll   lll lll  - LWPOLYLINE (LightWeight Polyline)
lll lll   ... lll  - SPLINE
... lll   ... lll  - REGION (ACIS/SAT) (via external converter)
... lll   ... lll  - 3DSOLID (ACIS/SAT) (via external converter)

Not sure which version of Autocad you are using or which version of DXF that is exporting, so to be really sure what is going on, we would need an example .DXF to have a look...
