Selection of snippets I've written while working on DWG imported data. They are specially made for my workflow and is not always the most user friendly. Beware.

Plugins > Architect Tools
Enter a comma or pipe separated list of layer which contains building boundary data.
These lines are then projected down to ground level and attempted to form faces which is extruded back up to the lowest/highest point above.
Quick and dirty tool to get the bulk work done when importing DWG site plans.
Merge Solid Buildings (2.0.0)
Merge solids but keep edges on top of the objects. This is so one can later detail the roofs for building generated with the "Generated Buildings" feature. (Video coming)
Fill Solid Holes (2.0.0)
Attempts to remove all holes in solid objects. Like window holes in a wall.
Select Non-Solids (2.0.0)
Filters down the current selection to only non-solid groups or components.
Make 2:1 Road Profile
For each selected edge two triangle are formed at either end of the edge making up for a road profile of 2:1.
Move to Z (2.0.0)
Allows you to set the Z height of selected edges. Made for creating roads where you have Z height given for sections along the road. (Video coming)
Contour Tool (2.0.0)
Tool to assist in closing up contour curves from CAD drawings where not all contours are properly closed. (Video coming)
Extrude Up (2.0.0)
Once the contours for a terrain has been created on a flat plane, with faces, this function will attempt to extrude the faces up to guiding 3D contour lines above. (Video coming)
Project Down Tool (2.0.0)
Tool that let the user pick edges in a group/component, without opening it, and it will be projected down to the first face underneath it. Intended to project roof edges down to building volumes underneath for later detailing. (Video coming)
Magnet Tool (2.0.0)
Pick edges that will be projected upwards until it hits other geometry. Intended to pull roof feature lines up to guiding 3D edges above. (Video coming)
Move to Plane (2.0.0)
Tool written to assist in adjusting surfaces to lie on a picked plane. (Video coming)
Flattens the selection (recursively) to Z level 0
Crop Selection to Boundary
- Select a face parallel to the ground plane.
- Select a group/component with edges to crop
- Run the command
Put Geometry on Layer0
Puts all Faces and Edges on to Layer0
Splits the edges in the selection by a given grid size.
- SketchUp 7 or newer - ( Other versions untested )
- TT_Lib2 (2.7.0)
