3D or CAD modeling programs can provide tools for the beginner to quickly create mathematical models known as sliceforms, or, in the terminology of computer graphics, raster surfaces. This tutorial and workshop provides the novice with the tools and procedures for modeling and physically constructing these models using their PC, a printer, craft knife, glue and paperboard.
