Visualizing an object given by three orthogonal projections is an important ability in many professions. To build this skill, constructions of cubes and halves of cubes provide a large number of exercises. Models of objects can be built using kindergarten sets of wood or plastic blocks. This Demonstration shows a 3×4 grid of columns of cubes with optional caps at the tops of columns. Given three projections, the solid is not necessarily unique.
