Limitations of SketchUp Data Imported to Revit Architecture

Revit Architecture treats the data imported from SketchUp as a large block of geometry that resists being manipulated (in the ways that you can usually manipulate geometry that is native to Revit Architecture). However, you can change the layer settings from SketchUp. (For example, to assign colors or materials on a by-layer basis, click Manage tabSettings panelObject Styles, and change settings on the Imported Objects tab.) When you import a SketchUp design into a Revit mass family and then load the mass family into a Revit project, you can convert mass faces (from the SketchUp design) into walls, floors, and roofs. (See Importing Massing Studies from Other Applications.)

When creating content in SketchUp for use in Revit Architecture, consider the following restrictions:
