Thank you all for your answers. I'm downloading all three packages suggested here (Blender, iClone and DAZ)

Update: iClone requires SketchUp Pro, so I discarded it...

Now I'm downloading DAZ Studio 4 Pro. It's still free.

Result with DAZ Studio: Too complicated. Can't find anything.

Result with Blender: Managed to figure out that I can import simple shapes from SketchUp via Collada and export them to Lumion via FBX with scale = 2.54.

Update: For best results, explode all components before exporting from SketchUp to Blender.

That's easy - Blender!  It does everything you want it to do, and costs nothing!!!  :-D  

BTW, The latest version 2.6ish fbx does work fine.

Good luck!
