I exported a shapefile to sketchup by using the sketchup extension form ARCGIS 10
with the help of Collada multipatch. and then generated 2d model in the sketchup environment
with all textures applied . Later on when i tried to import the same file into ARCSCENE
by Collada file i am able to get teh 3d model but not able to get the textures which i have given
in Sketchup.
Help me in this issue
thank q

There are couple things missing from the workflow, so I don't know exactly how you are importing the model.  The thing to keep in mind is that mutltipatches in a shapefile do not support textures.  Only multipatches in a geodatabase support them.
