3.56....first try
But without the convergence my average was 2.53.
I've always been really good at eyeballing level and plumb and all my pictures are straight......

Best scores on this computer:


3.96

Easiest items for me were the circle, right angle and bisecting the angle.

5.78. I had one major screwup on one of the convergence ones.

That was pretty cool!

4.8 on first try. I think the problem some have, is they try to view it in perspective. I'm pretty sure you just want parallel lines, not converging lines. They tilt them (probably so you can't use pixels as a guide on the screen), so it makes it look like they are in perspective. At least to my eye.

DD is struggling a bit with Honors Geometry - she might get a kick out of this. Esp if she can beat Dad . Thanks for the link, it was fun.

Thanks, Jambo, you're the only one who did worse than I did. You must be a true gentleman!

3.92 on first try, and 3.18 the second time.

I guess 5 years in architecture school paid off.

3.2 1st try.

I do similar things to this for a living (a very very small part of the time).
