How to import SketchUp contour lines

This is a very cool way to create topo/contour lines.

http://landsurveyorsunited.com/video/sketchup-tips-and-tricks-creating-contour-lines-from-google-ear...

What is a good way to get these 3d lines and 3d surface into ArchiCAD ?

Just open the SketchUp file?
Export to .3ds and convert to .gsm ?

Did you try this object - Contour Maker by Roberto Corona?

Yes. Very nice tool but that is not quite what I am asking about.

With SketchUp you can select an area from google earth and generate the coutour lines form that google earth image/data.

My question is about what to do after that. After the place where the video leaves off.

When you have the 3d SketchUp terrain model finished. What is the most useful way to get that into ArchiCAD ?
