I've never used the program, but on their site it states:
Imports and Exports
No design program works in a vacuum today, and we've worked hard to make
sure that you can use your SketchUp models in a wide variety of different
workflows. With SketchUp, you can import a DWG/DXF site plan as a starting
point for design, work up a quick 3d model, then export back to DWG/DXF to
create construction documents. SketchUp also exports 3DS, VRML, PDF, EPS,
JPG, TIF, PNG and a variety of other file formats for use in all kinds of
So you should be able to export as EPS or PDF for use in Illy.
Thanks for making me aware of the program. Interesting
