Blocksmith XR

Blocksmith is 3D modeling software that gives youth the chance to design virtual reality experiences. It includes numerous free models to include in projects, as well as compatibility with other popular 3D modeling software. Blocksmith offers educational licensing for schools, camps, and libraries.

The software makes it easy for young people to create virtual reality experiences. While creating youth can think through the logical steps of how a computer thinks by creating loops and reactions and events. It can be used in anything from a one-hour open session to a multi-session series or even a summer camp program.
