How to start modeling with Voronoi Patterns in Sketchup

This sketchup video tutorial is presented by Justin Geis.

In this tutorial, Justin shows how to generate a pattern on the basis of voronoi diagram with the purpose of produce a nice organic shape in sketchup. To produce this organic shape successfully, Justin uses various most recognized sketchup plugins like voronoi, conic curve, JHS power bar and shape bender.
With voronoi and conic curve, it is possible to generate a Voronoi diagram from guide points cloud as well as nice cutouts in those cells (conic curves).
Chris Fullmer has developed the shape bender plugin. It is a nice tool to warp objects over curved paths. With this tool, one will be able to generate curved objects with precise correctness.
It is recommended to work in top view while applying voronoi XY plugin.
The tool facilitates the sketchup users to indicate what area should be suited over a path and the shape bender plugin automatically adjusts the object over the path.
To learn the complete process, watch the following video tutorial.

Some useful features of Sketchup Pro 2018

In this sketchup article, Mark Harrison has briefly described some vital features of Sketchup Pro 2018.

Big enhancements are found in controlling section planes, excerpting model data into aggregated reports for takeoffs, and producing superior drawings out of your SketchUp models. Another crucial feature is the introduction of SketchUp Free: 3D modeling for everyone, in a browser to get access to free 3d modeling.
SketchUp Free offers the simplest way to draw in 3D, now assigned in a web browser. Draw, orbit, push-pull: create anything according to your imagination, however you visualize it. It loads in current web browsers on various operating systems, so it is possible to model on Chromebooks and Linux today.
Go to and commence modeling instantly. The similar modeling engine is used as the desktop version, running in a browser.
In order to host the models online, utilize Trimble Connect. All your work will be up-to-date and available wherever you require them. Your projects auto-save, and in case of a crash, your latest work will be preserved there when you re-launch SketchUp Free.
Watch the following video tutorial for online demonstration of Sketchup Pro.
