    Is it possible to convert 2-D DXF AutoCad drawings to 3-D DXF format?
    Preferably with a free/open source program.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not really. To convert 2D to 3D you need to know where the z position is of
    all x,y points. If you have full orthogonal views it is possible to define
    the z position of points on say the front elevation.
    However many 2D drawings do not have this, yet the brain still manages to
    produce a 3D image from limited information. The brain is a wonderful
