Artesano provides an intuitive interface to modeling complex
surfaces. It is based on deforming surfaces with virtual tools rather than
by modifying mathematical quantities such as control points or blend ratios.
The virtual tools mimic the tools a designer uses for modeling in clay.
It is primarily intended for the first steps in a design process, where creativity is more important than exactness in the mathematical sense. Even though, the models produced are guaranteed to be smooth and can be easily exported into general CADpackages. It uses the SurfLab's geometry library with an Open Inventor GUI frontend.
