You can't with free sketchup, all you can do is place dimension marks on various views of the object and print the Jpegs. In the pro version, you can export Autocad files.

A DXF file can be read in most all CAD systems, and it will exactly scale your model, so you have all the details you need to work with.

You've got the tools, try it ! There are loads of freeware 2D CAD drawing tools, any of them will open DXF.
