There should be an option for that in the import dialogue, like 'Y-axis is up' or something like that

Try converting your model into a block from CAD, go into the top view, then switch to isometric view, select all of your model and type WBLOCK, a dialog box will appear and prompt you to save the selected model to a new file, select the model's unit scale (meters, inches, etc) and hit ok, has worked for me so far.. Hope it helps. Edited some typos :) im new to this forums -- David --
