David is back with another tutorial for SketchUp 8, this time using an extension to help draw terrain. You will no longer be limited to drawing on flat land.

The Extension is called “Sandbox” and comes packaged with SketchUp by default, but is not enabled. Enabling it is simple, and explained in the video also.

There is so much you can do with the Sandbox tool, other than just drawing terrain. It can be used to model humans, oceans, faces, and much more.
