How do you import files from other programs without bogging down SU?

Hi,

I work in a very multi-discipline office and we all use different modeling software. I occasionally have modeled elements from Revit, 3DSMax, and (most often) Rhino that I must bring into a large site inside of my SU model. Since the geometry is very different in these programs, it comes into my file as lots of triangulated surfaces and is not only nearly impossible to edit, but it operates at about a click a minute. Is there a good way to export/import these elements as to make them more Sketch Up friendly, especially for Rhino models? Sometimes remodeling in SU is not an option. The files are very cumbersome and dispute using clean up extensions I feel the need to rip my hair out strand-by-strand…
