When I import a model from Sketchup, all objects are grouped and textures are all grayed out

Hello,

I've modeled a room in sketchup, and wanted to take it into dimensions to render it a bit further.

However, when I import my sketchup file into dimensions all the components of the model are grayed out and are all grouped as one chunk/piece.

I exported the file from sketchup as a 3D model/stl. file (that was the only option I had), and when I imported it into adobe dimensions, everything was grayed out as seen below. 

 

Does anyone know why this happens? And how I can take the images/materials/textures/models I had from sketchup into adobe dimensions for further rendering??

Here is a convertion concerning importing OBJ from SketchUp into Dn. https://community.adobe.com/t5/dimension/sketchup-obj-export-to-import-dimensions/td-p/9534883?page=...

 

The reason is  how Dn creating UV Maps. Also you can use Adobe Ps for converting from STL.to OBJ. 

Another solution is to group object in SletchUp before exporting.

Can you share stl file for testing

Thanks
