The main problem here is, that FreeCAD currently can’t directly import DWG files, as this is the AutoCAD native 2D File format. You need to convert the DWG to something more standard like DXF before it can be imported in FreeCAD using it’s built in importer.

There’s currently only a few non open converters able to do this job and none of them is currently available as a Flatpak for direct execution under EOS. So, until someone get’s its hands dirty and creates a Flatpak, your best bet would be to use a online conversion service to throw the DWG onto and get a DXF back, something like:
