User interface brushup

Cyril Vignet
Hello everyone,

I am a fan of openscad but totally new to this list so apologize if out of topic, but it is said you are open to new ideas.

I am using opens cad with children (around 9 years old and more). I found that the parallel between formulas and volumes:
- is very interesting for education
- is another way to understand programming with anchor to the real (one the file is pretend in 3D)

Nevertheless, Have you ever considered to provide a user interface with a scratch/snap look and feel ? it will be be a lot easier for beginners and children.

best

Cyril

wow! what a great idea with the puzzle mechanism! carried out very well too!
i might use it as well myself, or recommend it to my artist friends
the only thing which dampens myexcitement is this line int the "about":
"Developed with the sponsorship of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)"
what are they up to with it?

DARPA also sponsored the development of the Internet (originally called ArpaNet), along with a lot of other beneficial, open source tech we rely on. They sponsor STEM education for kids because it ties in to their mission of maintaining US technological superiority. For example, http://www.etc.cmu.edu/engage/
