It's a very functional plugin. Too bad there isn't a newer version (this one is 2 versions behind).

Description
NOTE:
- Added support for NURBS curves, see Q&A.
- Metaballs now are in a separate menu.
- Insignificant structural changes since 0.5 version, but do not panic, simply create new metaball system and 'merge metaball' old ones in.

- Fast tessellator provides interactive modeling of relatively large fields
- Standard sphere sculpting primitive (all transformations, hierarchy changes, animation) for flexible positive and negative balls. Variety of other primitives due in the next release.
- Added menu items for operations on the balls and exporting to subdivision meshes. Well tested on sample scenes.

Full version includes free upgrades with support and the following features:
- groups on particles, different groups do not interact with each other, e.g. fingers on a hand.
- field characteristics on particles, extra control options
- nurbs surface as a particle
- speedup for interactive modeler, there's a delay embedded in handicapped version
- blobby modeling data importers (Houdini is being in

- open metaballs.zip archive, copy
metaballs.mel into /scripts/others,
