Impossible Constructor intended for construction images of impossible figures. Impossible figures represents with cubes. Idea of this program was analogical program Illusionarium at http://www.palmyra.demon.co.uk/illusion/programs.htm. Main shortcomings of Illusionarium were complicated choise of necessary cube and lack of some cubes. Impossible Constructor offers full set of 64 cubes to choice. Necessary cube can be selected easer with cube constructor.
Main window of the program showed below.Toolbar at the left provides choice of necessary cube in two modes. First mode is choosing cube from library that consists of 64 possible cubes. Second mode allows to construct necessary cube by user. Right part of the main window is space to impossible figure construction. User can clear workspace, save workspace or customize some properties of the program using commands of main toolbar that located above workspace.
It's possible to move and copy cubes on the workspace using "select and move" mode.
The figure created with this program can be saved as Windows Bitmap file or as XML-file. Figures that was stored as XML-file can be opened in the program.
