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.
This is also the first time we open up the curtains and invite everyone to learn more about the Tinkercad Gen6 geometry kernel. It is a revolutionary kernel in a world where most CAD systems are moving towards utilizing half a dozen cores. Gen6 has been designed from the ground up to be able to effectively distribute single model rebuild operations across tens of thousands of CPU cores. We firmly believe this is where the world of CAD is heading and we are happy to be leading the charge.
