BlocksCAD

BlocksCAD is an easy to use, yet robust, blocks-based, programmatic, computer automated design tool specifically designed for education. Students as young as eight can create their own designs that can either be fabricated on any 3D printer or converted to an AR/VR platform. BlocksCAD supports coding and math learning by building computational thinking, logic and spatial reasoning skills. BlocksCAD supports education by providing curriculum that get kids excited while giving teachers the resources they need to connect their student activities to the academic skills they need to teach.
