BlocksCAD is a graphical, engaging, and effective way to CAD, where the outcome is improved math & computer science skills. CAD (Computer-aided design) is a computer technology that designs a product and documents the design’s process. This workshop will cover the use of the BlocksCAD program. This drag and drop (like Scratch) software is it mostly used to describe a solid 3D model. So you can use variables to make a design that can change sizes – like a ring where you can specify the finger radius. Or you can use loops to make even patterns shapes in a design – like the numbers on a dice or the steps in a staircase. In addition, you can build up your own library of shapes to use in designs.
This session will take plave on November 9 from 3-4pm.
