If I understand your question, you want to import a floorplan into SketchUp to use as a guide to layout spaces and thermal zones? The OpenStudio plugin for SketchUp does not recognize SketchUp objects until they are migrated into an OpenStudio object (such as a space, shading surface group, or intertior partition group). Therefore you need to first create a new space, double-click to edit the space, then paste the floorplan into that space.

Thank you. To clarify a bit, I created separate Sketchup files that contain the thermal zones for each floor of a multistory building. I wanted to take floor 2 file and paste it into floor 1 and have the surfaces of all of the zones intersect. However, since I am unable to click into all the thermal zones on floor 1, floor 2 does not appear in the Openstudio model. Any ideas?
