This could be due to the presence of CAD blocks in your dwg.
Please try purging your model and therefore explode CAD blocks, remove texts and measurements and then save as a 2010 dwg FILE VERSION. At this point, you can try re-importing for the conversion process.
If it doesn't work, please zip and attach here so I can take a look.

The conversion function from 3D block to IFC is useful if you have a 3D block in a compatible format, which represents a block, an element, a piece of furniture or similar and you need it in IFC format, but it is certainly not applicable for such complex files.
In this specific case, the DWG file cannot be converted and presents the error message in question.
When analyzing your file of about 100Mb, we noticed that it is composed of about 380000 entities including block references, meshes etc. Therefore, the conversion procedure shows the error.
We had difficulty in trying to purge it or even managing it with other programs as the file is so complex.
Our suggestion is to try to get a model as light as possible, perhaps in a different format, such as skp, obj etc.
