Hi … We’re building a new home. Our architect has provided a .DWG file created from Revitt. It seems to import successfully into SU Pro 2018 with lots of entities imported (see end of the post).
I would like to use SU to make changes (make rooms smaller, move doors, etc.), then share the .SKP file with the architect. I am struggling in part because all entities are on the same layer. The layers don’t correspond to levels of the home, but to things like walls, ceilings, columns, furniture, etc.
I’d like to delete all the second-floor geometry and work only on the main level of the home. When I’m happy with that, I’d like to go back upstairs and make the house fit the overall first level footprint.
But there doesn’t seem to be a way to delete or hide all entities on the second floor. When I try to move certain items, I end up causing merges.
Can I “section” the house and delete all items “above” the section plane? How could I then get back the second floor and work on it so it fits above the first level of the home?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

I don’t know what these entities are, or if I should do something about them.
