I'm experiencing problems opening DWF in AC. I've someone had the same problem in version 16. I'm using the latest.

You should talk to the person who saved the DWF file from their application.
He should experiment saving it in earlier DWF version, if possible (or with a different compression method, if that is an option).
He could also try saving to DWG instead of DWF. DWG would be better than DWF for the fact that there is a free program called DWG TrueView 2018 which you can download from Autodesk and use it to convert DWG files to other versions (it does not convert DWF files).

I think the probability is low but AutoCAD 2018 now changed the file format of DWG after 5 years of no changes in the format. Since AutoCAD 2018 is one the market for only a month, ARCHICAD is not yet capable of reading this format. In this case, too, the person should save it in an earlier format.
