Navigate to the File menu > Import > Stl (.stl) and choose the file you exported from Sketchup.

Once the model loads, press the S key (hotkey for scale) then enter .01 to scale it to 1/100th of its size. Hit Enter to save the scale.

Your mouse cursor must be in the 3D View pane to use any hotkeys associated with the model, so if you don't see a change after pressing the key, check where your mouse is.

You might need to zoom out (mouse wheel) to see the whole model.

To remove the grid, navigate to the Properties section of 3D View, expand the Display section, and uncheck Grid Floor.
