It’s no secret that the kinds of tech available for kids to try out today is significantly different to that which was available to the average Digital Trends reader back when we were at school.

One of these technologies is 3D modeling, which is playing a key role in everything from 3D printing to virtual reality. But while more and more classrooms are investing in 3D printers and VR headsets, the modeling process necessary for building virtual worlds and constructing original additive manufacturing designs is still complicated.

That’s where ScratchyCAD comes into play. Created by a group of 3D-printing entrepreneurs, educators, designers and programmers, the idea behind ScratchyCAD is to create 3D modeling software targeted at learners. The forthcoming parametric software uses a drag-and-drop interface which makes it straightforward to launch students or other newcomers into the world of 3D design.
