1. You'll need to ‎create a new shell for each group of similar floors in the Design Development Wizard. The shells can then be positioned such that they are immediately above each other.

2. ‎I think it should work fine with one CAD file.

I have all of the footprints (17 in total) in a single CAD drawing and have uploaded it to eQuest. I was able to get the initial ground floor outline set up, but now I am not sure how to proceed from here . . .
