Welcome to picoCAD!

A tiny modeller for tiny models

picoCAD is a program to build and texture lowpoly 3D models. Where many programs for modelling and texturing are bloated and overly complicated, picoCAD aims to make it fun, easy, and accessible by focusing on the bare essentials. It is built on the PICO-8 platform and comes rich with constraints. Experiment to find your own workflow and anything is possible!

picoCAD is a standalone application and you don't need pico8 to run it.
