  • Or draw your creations with basic tools like Circles, Boxes, Polygons, Planes, Gears, Ropes & Chains.
  • Make your inventions truly unique by adding physics like Springs, Axles, Thrusters, Lasers, Fixates and Tracers.
  • Edit and interact with your creations using tools like Scale, Rotate, Move, Cut and Drag.
  • For even more editing you can make water, set collision layers, group objects, add mechanics, etc, to your different components.
For design and final touches

The Algodoo world is colorful but you can easily change the look and feel in Algodoo.

  • Set color for your background, water and your objects. Save your colors as different palettes for future work. You can also change the look of your artwork with pre-made palettes like X-ray, Optics, Sunset, and many others.
  • Experiment with different materials in Algodoo Physics. In seconds you can set density, friction and restitution for your objects. Making them slippery like ice, heavy like gold or bouncy like a rubber ball.
