[postgis-users] Massive CAD load to Postgis

CAD file usually contains lot of different types of objects (points,
polygons, lines ..., text) in one file.
In PostGIS You should have one geometry type per one PostGIS table, so You
need to split them.

After splitting, I would recommend to convert them in to ESRI Shapefiles (by
ogr2ogr, or other GIS apps).
You can load all Shapefiles in to PostGIS by shp2psql script.
