past the pergolia framing etc. to the new plan. but mainly the full columns now. any suggestions.

I am trying to Import a 3D Sketch-up object from the 3D warehouse into chief. It is a Teknion office product.
When i go to File - Import - Import 3D symbol - attach the document, i get the attached pop - up.
Any idea's what the issue could be?
I am using X9.
Is there a way to move all of the CAD items on an existing layer to another layer for the entire plan? I am cleaning up some of my layers to simply the list. Over the years my layers have grown and I have some CAD blocks with lines on an old layer that I would like to move to a newer layer and then delete the old layer. For instance: I would like to move all of the CAD on an old layer named "CAD line size 25" over to a newer layer named "CAD 25." If it could be done then I could delete the old layers I no longer use. I have tried but have not been successful without exploding a block first; that would be a nightmare for all of the CAD blocks I have accumulated. But maybe I am missing something or it is so simple I am overthinking it. It would also be helpful if there was a way to determine which blocks use a certain layer. If so then only those blocks would have to be redone. Thanks in advance.
I'm attempting to make my own shelf and rod symbol. The symbol is easy enough...but, the CAD block is another story. I want line that represents the pole to be a dashed line...representing that it is underneath the shelf. I've tried just about every thing I can thing of...and no matter what I do the line in the CAD block is always solid.
When I made the symbol I called it a "Fixture"...is this the problem? When I place the symbol into a plan...does the new plan assign the layer to the symbol...like a CAD block? Or does it retain the layers it was created with?
Attached are some pics...
this is what I'm trying to achieve...
I was wondering if it was possible to somehow import an entire SketchUp full home model into chief and then break it down into a floor plan? I know that I can take plans and pdf trace them, however, I have a full model already done, I'd like to just use as my base. Is this even possible? I have the SketchUp DWG file as well if that helps.
