I gave Sketchup 2017 a try also. I exported a solid to it and thought the screen was empty at first but it turned out that it was just too small to see. I had to zoom in. The second drawing I tried was a house framing view, that came in at a good size but it said that I had a lot of errors of zero length entities that it would fix for me. Okay, when the drawing displayed about half the drawing was missing. I soon realized that everything missing was in groups, so grouped objects are not supported.
Check your drawing for size or groups to see if any of those are the issue.
