what you need is the SketchUCam
plugin for Sketchup. It is very easy to use though the 3D (2.5D) side of it leaves a bit to be desired. For 2.5 / 3D, something like PyCAM would be a better choice than the plugin. It would be nice to have a plugin to export to PyCAM or some such, sort of like the plugin for povray, but it's all easy enough as is. If your just cutting formers / ribs / etc., simple 2D parts, then Sketchup / ScetchUCam is a decent and cheap (free) way to go.
