    I have done some work on importing AutoCAD files into my application (not OpenGl, just simple 2D graphic editor) and I used AutoCAD dxf format, which is easy to read (text file). I doubt that you can use AutoCAD native dwg format without knowing documentation how it works. DXF on the other hand is well documented on Autodesk website.
