Run the Installer

After downloading, double-click the installer file to install the plugin.

Verify the Correct Destination Folder

The plugin should install in the destination folder automatically. If you have more than one version of SketchUp, you may need to run the installer again and change the destination folder.

Launch SketchUp

After installation is complete, launch SketchUp. You should see the Artisan toolbar if installation was successful.

A new menu item (Tools->Artisan) should now be added. Note that there are features available in the menu that are not found in the toolbar.

Extensions Preferences

If you open the Preferences->Extensions dialog, you should see the Artisan extension is enabled. If it is not enabled, 'check' it and relaunch SketchUp.
