You can import DWG file by clicking Import File. When you select DWG file, Import file dialog opens.

AutoCAD layers are imported as groups. "/" character can be used to the subgroup creation. Subgroup selection can also be selected/deselected. 

Materials for each group can be individually selected. Only “Selected” groups are brought into MAGNET Explorer.

Dialog has also context sensitive menu where the same material for multiple rows can be set. This is done by setting value for one row, selecting multiple rows and from context sensitive menu selecting “Set same material”.
