I’m having trouble with exporting my model to cad with the pictures … any advise?
As posed, your question is impossible to answer! Please provide more information about exactly what steps you employ in SketchUp and what results you get.
For example: What cad format are you attempting to export? What options (if any) do you select? What (if any) progress or error messages do you see? What (if anything) is produced by the export? What is wrong with the output?
If you can upload your model, that would allow us to see if there is a specific issue with it or just with your procedure.
