We found an instructable on making chalk art patterns in CorelDraw.  But guess what? — you can use this technique to poster print all kinds of fun 3d designs.  The instructable is here.   Its pretty cool!

We sent a logo perspective box, aReuleux car and some conic section models to the NWMath Conference.

PDFs can be printed in various sizes.  “Chalk” Rubics Cube    or   Ice Cubes  

Our Corel File with template is here.  I’m not sure how to make this in other programs.

Be  sure to use your camera or close one eye and look from an angle to get the illusion..

So now we are making a playground!  More coming soon as we make them.
