comment Workflow to convert a DWG CAD file to a shapefile
Is it also possible to directly save it as a shapefile?

comment Workflow to convert a DWG CAD file to a shapefile
Thanks, I'm familiar with Postgis, so happy to store it there; how do I go about using the ground control point with ogr2ogr? Do I need a point (or points) of reference for the geolocation and within the CAD file?

Unfortunately I do not have Autocad map 3D, but it's useful to know it's possible within that software.

@MichaelMiles-Stimson I don't have a large number, but it is a task I will need to repeat every few weeks. I haven't had much luck opening the dxf in QGIS - do you have any pointers?

Did you have an index on the geometry column? You can add an index using something like this CREATE INDEX idx_districts ON geog USING GIST ( geog );
