ArcGIS 10.0 Export to CAD (DWG) Newbie - unable to get it to work

I'm unable to export to DWG format some 3D models

I go to the Toolbox --> Conversion Tools --> To CAD --> Export to CAD

I select the only input feature class, which contains the 3D models.
I leave the ouput type to the default DWG_R2010
Output file to the default.
I leave the Ignore Paths in Tables checked.
And the Append to existing files unchecked
And the seed file empty (seems to be for dgn, not dwg)

I get an output DWG file the is 9K, where the geodatabase directory is about 32MB, and each separate model is close to 1MB

I tried the forums and found in 9.x that you needed to to set the "CADType" field to '3D Polyine'

Tried it still a 9K file size.

Anyone understand what I'm missing

Thanks
Robert
