The best way to export a model from Sketchup to Augment is to export it as a KMZ file and upload the KMZ straight away in Augment.
Sketchup has a variety of software versions and plans. The Kmz support should be able in sketchup pro and sketchup make (free). You can also download directly from the 3D warehouse.
KMZ files guarantee that you have all the texture and 3d model correctly packaged.

- Select File--> export--> 3D model
3. Select .KMZ (listed as a Google Earth File).
4. upload your model into the augment manager.
