Scripting langauges supported:
Scripts can be loaded from your hard drive and modified using an editor of your choice, or loaded from Github gists for a truly "backed up in the cloud" coding experience. Scripts can be written in Java/Groovy, Clojure or Jython.
BowlerStudio features the Creature Creator, a design interface that lets users generate robots with slide bars. The application will generate 3d printable STL's that will walk just like the generated robot on the screen.User Forum Download Source Gitter Chat
