BlocksCAD: STEM Learning thru 3D Design & Printing

Learn how to use BlocksCAD-- an easy-to-learn, yet powerful CAD teaching tool that integrates creative design with 3D printer technology, while re-enforcing math and geometry concepts.

Originally developed to teach elementary students how to create their own 3D printed projects, BlocksCAD has been successfully applied in a range of learning environments.

An intuitive & familiar interface allows users of all ages to code & design within minutes and successfully printing their creations shortly thereafter.

BlocksCAD is an open source learning tool for students needing a visual, three-dimensional approach to understanding a variety of complex and often abstract math concepts.
