Make something in picoCAD, the latest and greatest low-poly pixel-art 3D modeler. No prior 3D experience required. All skill levels welcome!
Theme is required for entries and is meant to be open-ended. Real-world, fictional, or wholly new are all allowed and encouraged! You can make interiors, exteriors, cities, structures, or even the act of building/constructing. If you can explain how your model follows the theme, it's valid!
You can only use each primitive once
Limitation is completely optional and is an added modifier. The seven primitives (shapes) included are pyramid, prism, cube, pent, hex, cylinder, and plane. No extrusions allowed. Moving vertices of primitives or deleting faces is allowed. You do not have to use all primitives.
"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!"

Voting will be open to submitters only. Submit if you are able to so you can participate in voting!
Johan has been kind enough to sponsor this jam with keys. The 1st and 2nd winners of each category get their pick of the pixel editor Aseprite or the game engine Pico-8! only 1 prize per participant, duplicate prizes will go to runner ups
Be sure to read the manual included with picoCAD!
Waporwave and I have also written a supplementary guide for picoCAD. Included is a beginner tutorial, overview of modeling and texturing, and a FAQ section answering common questions and showcasing tricks like inverted normal or spheres!
