You can import object from files, using the 3D-files object. As soon as you insert a 3D-files object, 20-sim will open a file browser. Three formats are supported

STL-files (*.stl): The STL file format or stereolithography format is another widely accepted interchange format between CAD packages.
DXF-files (*.dxf): This is AutoCAD's drawing interchange format. The DXF file format was originally designed by AutoDesk® to represent 3D models built with AutoCAD®. Now they are generally accepted as an interchange format between CAD packages.
Lightwave Object files (*.lwo): LightWave is a software package used for rendering 3D images, both animated and static.
