When saving models in Sketchup (or any other Modelling software) for use in Muvizu, it is important to locate the XYZ origin of the model and orient it in 3D space the way you want it to appear in Muvizu. This is especially critical for attachments, because they will typically attach to your character's attachment point at whatever part of the model is located at coordinates X=0, Y=0, Z=0

Sounds like when you saved your model it was not centered at the axis origins

Having said all that, I've noticed that when importing models that won't be used as attachments, sometimes they appear far away. No idea why this happens... but when it does, you have to click on the object to make it selected, then use the mouse to move it to wherever you want it to be.
