Yes. See ‘Region Selection’ and click on the selection modes option.
You do need an internet connection to load the SelfCAD.com online App but once it's loaded you can continue working offline.
SelfCAD is browser-based and only uses the cloud as a backup for your files and objects and to share your projects on all your devices but It can work perfectly fine offline, once it's loaded. You will just need to keep your browser open and to avoid the risk of losing your objects, you will need to periodically export the STL files to your local computer.
Please do not download our video tutorials.
Yes, but this feature has not been released yet. The public plugins API, and related documentation, is planned and we will make a special announcement about this soon. Stay tuned!
Once we allow the use of plugins, these types of functions will become available. If you have any cool ideas for SelfCAD, please send us your suggestions directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. We might even create the first plugin based on your recommendation!

Besides SelfCAD being the professional easy to learn and use 3D modeling tool, it’s also the only program that has incorporated all features under a single system. That is, from technical and artistic to 3D printing. The users can model, sculpt, and slice without the need for additional software.
We have also integrated MyMinifactory so users have access to a database of ready to print models that they can import and modify easily without the need to leave the software.
You can export your objects to MyMiniFactory and download them from there.
Yes. Plugin support is in the plan for future enhancements. In fact, our developers designed SelfCAD with this functionality in mind from the outset. We will post an update regarding the support of plugins on our blog soon.
