OpenSCAD is an actively used programming language created in 2010. OpenSCAD is a free software application for creating solid 3D CAD (computer-aided design) objects. It is a script-only based modeller that uses its own description language; parts can be previewed, but it cannot be interactively selected or modified by mouse in the 3D view. An OpenSCAD script specifies geometric primitives (such as spheres, boxes, cylinders, etc.) and defines how they are modified and combined (for instance by intersection, difference, envelope combination and Minkowski sums) to render a 3D model.

Example code from the web:

 x = 4+y;
 rotate(40) square(5,10);
 translate([10,5]) { circle(5); square(4); }
 rotate(60) color("red") { circle(5); square(4); }
 color("blue") { translate([5,3,0]) sphere(5); rotate([45,0,45]) { cylinder(10); cube([5,6,7]); } }

Example code from Linguist:

// Simple sphere in OpenSCAD

sphere( r=10 );
