Google SketchUp: Organic Modeling with the Artisan Plugin

“Artisan” is an amazing and incredibly useful organic modeling toolset released by SketchUp plugin wizard Dale Martens (a.k.a. Whaat). Based on Subdivide & Smooth tools, Artisan is perfect for people who want to use SketchUp to model organic shapes and terrain features. Artisan includes a set of “deformation” tools that allow you to sculpt, smooth, flatten, pinch and apply textures just like you would with a brush.

You can add or reduce polygon complexity in your model, allowing for more or less detail. There’s also a suite of vertex tools that you can use to model based on controlling vertex points.
