SketchUp Plugins 

Introducing a collection of Massey Spatial Design’s favourite plugins which are free to download or already exist within the SketchUp Application, they provide speciality modelling opportunities beyond the basic SketchUp functions. You can view the many SketchUp Plugin at the Extensions Warehouse

SandBox 

 With specialised Sandbox tools, you can create sculpt terrain, berms, ponds, terraced landscapes, and so on. The Smoove tool enables you to model hills and valleys on a TIN (triangulated irregular network). With the Add Detail tool, you can split a selection within a TIN into smaller triangles so that you can model detail where it’s needed.
