Summary: KeTpic is a macro package which generates the graphical code that can be used in LaTeX. In 2014, commands for generating data in obj format were added to KeTpic. The data can also be converted to stl format, with which 3D printers can make 3D models. KeTCindy is a Cinderella plug-in that generates data for a variety of teaching materials along with 3D models without much additional effort. In this paper, we show a variety of KeTCindy commands for doing that, and present the actual teaching materials that result.
