Export CAD files to Illustrator

in Architectural Design held by guest
Contest Closed
I have an assignment to create some marketing images from a complex building/home. The files were created in 1999 as CAD files, but I have not seen them, and I do not know the file type or the program that created them. I need someone to export from these files images in a file format that can be read by Illustrator. I expect the job will take anywhere from 5 to 10 hours of work and that the work would be spread over several takes, with refinements and give and take between the illustrator and the CAD expert.
I expect to pay on an hourly basis and will pay a fee up front and the balance within 5 days of receipt of the final usable files. I can present referrals about my history in paying free-lancers. I am one myself and understand the liabilities and risks.

I would expect to post the files to my Drop box and ask for an initial assessment from the free lancer as to whether he or she can work with the files and what views the freelancer and provide to the client. If all seems doable, I will ask for an estimate. Assuming the price is within my client's budget, we will proceed with a first payment and start the effort on an hourly basis.
Ability to open, manipulate views of the drawings, shade in walls, export to Illustrator.
Don't Wants:
I want files that I can bring into Illustrator to annotate with text.

House facade design within 7 days
We are currently in the process of finalizing the design for a modern villa in the DACH (Germany/Austria/Switzerland) region. We are super happy with the front of the villa. We love the design there. However, we are not happy with the backside facade of the villa. The design misses a clear structure. There is some design element here and there. Windows are a bit randomly positioned from an outside perspective (from the inside it makes sense). So far there is no real light concept for the backside. The idea of the contest is to find our dream design for the backside of our villa. Let me provide some details. There is more in the presentation As can be seen from the floor plan we are planning the stairs with two skybridges (which means there is some space between floor and window) at the right side of the left part of the building. The idea was to have one big window that covers at least two floors. Currently the third floor which is the „Cube“ on the roof is slighthly moved back. We have also planned a small water area in front of the left part of the house so that there is a mini bridge leading to the entrance door (similar to the design of another villa we included in the presentation). There is a stairs going down to the basement where we have on the left a guest room and on the right the living/bed room of the nanny’s flat. Above that is the window to an office with library. The closed space left of it is a wall in the living room which could potentially also become a window. Above that the three windows are kids room / bathroom windows At the top in the cube the three windows are in the bathroom Now so far we have refrained from adding more windows since on the first floor we have on the left the walk-in dressing room where windows are not needed .Then at the top in the cube to the right there is far right the sauna and next to it we need the wall for some fitness device installations inside. Having said that there is always an option to have kind of fake windows where behind them there is a wall. The outcome of the competition should be some illustrations with ideas for the backside of the house also showing or highlighting some materials to be used. In addition some idea with regards to the construction leading to the basement would be welcome. How would that look best in terms of stairs, green area etc. Since we need to finalize the renderings soon, there is only a week time before ending the competition. All details an be found in the presentation including all floor plans. Please feel free to be creative. However the shape oft he building is a given.
