I've been using SketchUp for a number of years now to aid in my concept work, and over those years I've managed to collect some additional plugins that I find invaluable. I get asked from time to time what I use, and I also notice people doing work who would benefit from these plugins, so I put together this sheet to help anyone who's interested. Below are links to the plugins so you don't have to type the URLs if you don't want.

Round Corner
Bool Tools
Joint Push Pull
Fredo Scale
Keyshot
V-Ray
Tools on Surface
Extrude Tools
Bezier Spline
Artisan
Curviloft
Selection Toys

Thanks for this list of useful plugins! Just learned how to use Sketch-Up in my interior design class, and I'm (mostly ;) ) loving it. Adding these will be a big help.

I have used sketched up and didn't know they had plugins for more features.  Do you have to have the paid version of sketch up to use these plugins or can you just used the free version?

I've got the free version of sketchup and Joint-Push-Pull works without any problems.

Don't forget about Subdivide & Smooth, it's extremely useful for making organic shapes.

Never used Sketchup, have used Zbrush and C4D, but this looks really good, are these for pro or the free SUMake version? and is there a big difference between them?

Many thanks! I just recently started getting back into 3D modeling and I've been using sketchup/ZBrush with little/no plugins for Sketchup, many of these will add functions that I've been missing for Sketchup, for when creating basic organic sculptures.
