DXF is a common 2D/CAD format so it should not be a problem to find a program that can import it and work with it. However finding a program that can export to Autodesk Inventor formats (without the obvious Inventor here) will be a lot more trickier because it is not that well supported. Still it should definitly be possible.

Convert from dxf file format
The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned dxf to ipt. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
