Ive been trying to use autcad truview with a site plan CAD file, and get an error "file format not supported by this version of the application"
I get the same error when using the simlab .pdf importer and .dwf importer.

i uploaded the pdf, wouldnt let me do the .dwf

Hello,

The plugin is for importing 3D PDF files, not 2D data.

For 2D why not using DWG?

ive got a site plan with a bunch of layers. Im using autodesk truview to hide/turn off some layers. I then plot to file a DWF that i markup with autodesk design review. This resulting .dwf is what i want to import into sketchup so can can actually add things actual lines (not just markups) and for contouring.
