The JSCAD website can be used immediately by visiting the project website at

This is a great way to learn about JSCAD, view 3D and 2D designs, and create something new. That’s what 3D printing is about!

Starting View

The website presents a page with three areas.

  1. Viewer
  2. Editor
  3. Info Panel

The initial design is the JSCAD logo, which is created from the contents of the script shown in the editor.

Using the mouse buttons, the view can be rotated, zoomed in or out, and moved by panning.

If you need a few pointers then click on the left hand tab, which will make the info panel visible. There’s a short help section on keystrokes and mouse functions.

The editor can be hidden or shown by clicking on the right hand tab.

There’s not much else to learn, as you are already using JSCAD. You may want to try a few of the examples. There’s a list of examples in the info panel.
