BlockCAD is a program that provides users with the ability to build virtual models using bricks similar to Legos. Creating virtual models using the program is done as if using real-life Lego kits: from the ground up, with the studs up. Users can begin their projects by selecting a base on which the blocks for their model will be placed.
The application has an easy-to-use interface that makes it easy and simple for users to undertake any design project. Most of the commands are controlled using the mouse; users can also set keyboard hotkeys for some of the commands. Blocks can be chosen from the right-hand menu and dropped on chosen blocks at the base. The screen has top and bottom arrows to help turn the design and make it visible in any direction. Pieces can be rotated in 90-degree steps. This application also has advanced tools for shading or creating backgrounds according to the user’s desired style.
BlockCad includes different options for sizes, shapes, colors, and directions. With this program, users are free to create various shapes and models. The created models can be saved as image files in JPG or BMP format for sharing or uploading to websites. These can also be printed directly from the application.
