    U might want to check out the Phlatscript, a plugin designed to workup & export gcode from sketchup, made for the Phlatprinter, a cnc machine designed to cut foam for model aircraft, but may work for u as well.

    It does seem a problem that such I popular and easy 3D tool would be so troublesome to CNC. Trimble should sort out this mess.
