    Actually you can not import a cad file into an assembly.
    You first have to import it into a part studio.

    @ jason_durfee, you can import the file which Onshape supports by following method,

    You can find the Import option by clicking on "+" icon which is in Left most position.

    Imported part will be saved in separate part studio.Now you can take that part to assembly by clicking insert option in assembly.
