Coming Soon – Python Turtle with 3D Modeling Skills

In the following week or two, we will release a new free app and a new self-paced course dedicated to Python Turtle with 3D Modeling Skills. This is a great introductory programming course where students learn Python while drawing patterns. There are many implementations of the Turtle on the web. The one in NCLab will allow students to extrude their ornaments to 3D and print on 3D printers. Also, students will be able to create rotationally-symmetric objects by revolving the turtle’s trace about the Y-axis. Illustrative screenshots follow.

Does this look like a wine glass?

OK, I think so.
