I’ve an idea for a some casing and these are some rough sketches using Sketchup and V-Ray 3.40.02. Although this looks pretty nice I want to test some subdivision surfaces in Sketchup. For that I got a plugin called Artisan but another on which is populair is SubD.

This is an early test of a subdivided model. Subdivision ain’t really hard to use but it takes some practising if you want the outcome to be as you like. Edges and using quad faces are very important and for Sketchup there are some pretty handy plugins.

Any ‘normal’ 3D modeling program like Blender, 3DS Max, MODO etc. has those features ofcourse implemented. Sketchup is not really a full featured 3D modeler but with some nice plugins you can do some really nice things.
