Coming soon...Artisan

Dale Martens has officially announced his next commercial SketchUp plugin and its a whopper! This plugin is the follow-up to Subdivide and Smooth. The plugin will be known as 'Artisan'. If you thought easily creating organic forms were perhaps impossible to create within SketchUp,or least extremely difficult, this will change your mind.

Features Include:
Greatly improved workflow and speed for the classic subdivide and smooth tools
  •  Subdivide and Smooth selected faces
  •  Subdivide selected faces
  •  Smooth selection
  •  Crease edges or vertices
  •  Knife subdivide for creating loops
  •  Extrude tool to create loops without interior faces
  •  Auto-subdivision of selection boundary faces
  •  Quickly preview subsurface geometry prior to committing
Sculpting Tools
  • Sculpt Brush (sculpt, pinch, flatten, smooth)
  • Select Brush (paint a selection of faces)
  • Paint Brush (paint SketchUp materials on faces using virtual brushstrokes)
  • Symmetrical sculpting
  • Lock to plane
Vertex Tools
  • Soft Selection
  • Soft Move
  • Soft Rotate
  • Make Planar
Polygon Reduction
  • Much faster and more robust than the free Polyreducer plugin
