    DWG import just imports nothing - empty D

    I wanted to test the datasmith import for CAD files, here DWG files from AutoCAD. Using UE 4.25.1
    Having enabled the Datasmith Importer, Datasmith CAD Importer and Datasmith Content Plugins, the Datasmith Icon is present and allows me to select from a whole bunch of formats, including the DWG file format.

    I could not find any informations about how to import CAD files, except for C4D, for which an extra plugin exists. Also, lot of infos I found seem to indicate, that the DWG import is not on a high priority on the list of things to be done...

    What do I do wrong with this?
