Missing download link for iModel Plugin for SketchUp from this page - Create iModels (bentley.com)
Hi Oto, thanks for reporting this. We are looking into it. We'll also look into fixing up the incomplete article here.

most likely there will be no i-model plugin because there is lumenrt export but it is definetly needed to have also i-model export.
Why it is needed because there is no common format which could be used for BIM planning when there is sketch projects to choose from and they are sent in different formats Revit, ACAD, SKP, Collada(dae), OBJ, IFC and so on. So Bentley could be platform where all design variants from different suppliers could be put together for decision making. I-model would be ideal as other formats need to be converted and IFC is not suitable as it doesn't support textures yet.
Hi Oto, thanks for your patience. The page has been corrected (bullet point removed).
We recommend trying iTwin Synchronizer Desktop, which can convert SKP files to iModel 2.0 format (BIM) directly.
And what engine iTwin Synchronizer uses? If it is based on Microstation then it is not good at all for converting SKP files.
The following article (and the other links within it) has more information about iTwin Synchronizer: Frequently Asked Questions (iTS)
If you need further clarification, I will work with my colleagues to ensure a specialist gets you the answers you need.
Sketchup or OBJ is not listed there.
Oto, the link above was for general information on iTwin Synchronizer and how it works.
Regarding Sketchup, see this article: Supported Applications and File Formats
