I already answered that for you in the other topic. CAD --> STL is a one way process.

That fact is not changed by embedding the STL in a CAD drawing which you then write to a DWG file.

Going from STL to CAD is a bit like trying to go from a paper book to a .DOC file. Scanning the book gives you a non-editable image format, which of course can be embedded within an editable document much as you did with the STL in the DWG.

You would need something equivalent to a 3D Optical Character Recognition, but I doubt that such a thing exists.
