Basic floor plan import Autocad lt

What command are you using? Sketchup uses shortcuts not commands. If you share the dwg or the skp file we could probably help you, otherwise we could spend some time trying to guess what’s the issue.

You mean you can’t get it to import a DWG, or you’re struggling with making the imported DWG 3D?

It has been my standard workflow to trace over the reference drawing rather than try to use the drawing as the starting basis of SketchUp geometry for a number of reasons, but this new plugin might change that:
