Abstract : In this paper, we present a browser-based, visual and media-rich programming platform for K-12 schools that allows novices to create complex 3D shapes. This provides an easy way for designers, architects, and artists to imagine the development of an object. The word computation has received increased attention in today's world because of its applicability in all fields. This tool is very helpful for the user who doesn't have prior programming knowledge and they want to learn and apply the computational concepts as part of their design process. 'Building-Blocks' is a graphical programming language used for generation of 3D structures using computational algorithms. This helps to create personally meaningful projects: designing a model, getting the physical object from a model, sharing ideas and project activities with others in Building-Blocks community. © 2018 IEEE.
