TinkerCad has now added a scripting function, allowing you to generate shapes using expressions and algorithms — this could lead to some very interesting experiments!
We are excited to announce that it is now possible to write Shape Scripts directly inside the Tinkercad editor and create shapes that are generated programmatically. While the scripts are written in the editor the actual scripts are executed by the distributed Gen6 geometry kernel running on the Tinkercad server cluster. We believe this is what cloud computing is at its best, harnessing great power through an extremely easy to use browser interface.
Now you can create mathematical rules, and try to work within those limits to make something cool!
