Using solid work files in sketchup

I`m using components that was made in solid works with the file type being converted to sketch up. i am finding that sketch-up is struggling with the solid works file. Has anyone got any advice on what the possible causes are? is this down to sketchup or the computer specs, it seems to struggle with basic commands after the import such as copy and past and doesnt move the object smoothly

any advice is appreciated

You may have imported something with millions of polygons that is slowing SketchUp down. Have a look at the Model Info -> Statistics to see how many Faces and Edges you have.

you may want try to simplify the facetation of the polygon mesh by using the remeshing functionality of free ‘MeshLab’:
