Dear Di,

not sure whether you are following this step,
but to remind who is having trouble with using google sketchup,

1. you should always use (to open and save) .idf file instead of using .skp
2. and if the model includes multizones, you should run the "surface
matching" (or manually modify) to properly connect adjacent surfaces before
you import the file in the studio.
