Is there any way to convert dxf files to something Adobe Illustrator can open?

Illustrator will not open AutoCAD files saved in a version later than AutoCAD 2007. AutoCAD files include both DXF and DWG formats. You can import AutoCAD files from version 2.5 through version 2007.
So just open the DXF file you want to work with in a CAD program and save it as an old ACAD file.

Use an online converter to make it a PDF then it will open. You have to remove a few layers of clipping masks in most cases.
