CANNOT OPEN DXF'S CREATED IN FUSION 360, this has not been resolved (Version 25.0.1 - 64 Bit)

Since the release of Illustrator 2021, we are unable to place or open .DXF files that are saved from Autodesk Fusion 360.


It appears that the version of DXF created by Fusion 360 is AC1014 or (R14).  This dates back to pre 2000, and a lot of Fusion 360 customers are happy with this becuase they want file compatibility with very old CNC machines.


Has Adobe stopped supporting the ability to import DXF files of this age or is the DXF importer broken in the new version of Illustrator 2021 (V25) as it used to work in Illustrator 2020?


If Adobe has just dropped the ability to import these old files, a warning message would be nice instead of just opening or placing a blank document.
