DXF shown but "Some entities could not be converted properly" when importing to sketch

I can import the dxf file from https://www.dropbox.com/s/i4k3lcjuu7jxxxc/lufthuller skriver.dwg?dl=0
and i see the drawing when clicking the tab. 

When I am in a "part" making a sketch I would like to import the dxf. Selecting "import dxf" give me the option to select the correct file name. 

After clicking the file name I get a blue info at the top stating that "Some entities could not be converted properly."

How can I place the drawing from the imported drawing tab into a sketch?

    Sorry for the long response time. I imagined that I would get an email when someone posted here :)

    I was having the same problem importing a very simple shape from illustrator as dxf as described above -same error. 

    On closer inspection of my illustrator file, I had 4 instances of points (anchors) sitting exactly on top of each other.  I cleaned up those extra points -and the file imported just fine.
