Hi, I am not sure if I got it correctly but if you wish to do straighten a surface it will take a lot of different methods as I am not sure what kind of surface you would be working on (triangulated or quad). Firstly import the model from autocad and the convert it to editable poly. Then try applying bend modifier. This will help u in unfolding the mesh. After this you would have to manually straighten the mesh by selecting the vertices and using soft selection. Let me know if it works else we will find some other solution.
