I've developed a new model for Escher's "impossible crate" illusion:

Unlike the Jerry Andrus model...

...or the "cutaway" model...

...this one can be moved around a bit without destroying the illusion. You can see it in action here:

Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

Thanks for the kind words. Nir, I'm afraid I don't know what visio format is. I'm working on building one myself, and I can send you the dimensions.

I would also love to build one of these
If any one could PM me plan, that would be wonderful.

Great idea Quinn! Andrus would have liked this for many reasons.
