First you need to add the sandbox as a toolbar. Click in the menu on Window > Preferences. After that you go to “Extensions” and select the Sandbox tool.

Here are the names of the different tools of the Sandbox-tool I’m going to use in this tutorial:

Ok, now to the part where I’m going to explain the tool. There are two ways to use it.
The first one is to create a plane by using the “From Scratch” tool:

NOTE: Don’t make the plane to big, the overload of faces could cause a crash!

The plane became a component. Doubleclick it to edit it. After that you click on the “Smoove” tool, point somewhere on an edge, push and hold your leftmousebutton and drag it up- or downwards:

NOTE: If you think the range of the Smoove tool is too small, just scale your plane (make it smaller)!

Now you can start drawing hills and valleys! My result:

The second way is to just draw a normal plane and draw vertical lines on it and select it all. By this way you can make a low-poly terrain.

Now just click on the “From contours” tool! My result:
