thanks to all ...
rate this instructable please!!!
i was living in NY and saw this cube inside a subway booth on the 7 line (46th st)
and for days i wonder about the structure until one day i found the way to build it ... yes!
so , is not my original idea, but looks cool!!!
6 used metrocards (nice to make another projects and is free!!)
your hands ... lol
2 oz of patience or 10 min of spare time
i have tried business cards and they work too!
Step 1: Basic fold
2.- fold to find center
3.- do not mark the crease too deep
4.- fold lower corner to meet center (paper clip is just a holder for the picture)
5.- fold the opposite way to make a hard crease
6.- fold top corner, then fold the opposite way to make a hard crease
7.- you will have this 4 triangles in one square
8.- press top and bottom triangle with one hand while pressing the right and left triangles with the other hand
9.- press hard to make as flat as you can
10.- this shape we need
11.- fold an the other side to get a symmetrical shape
12.- fold all cards to make six pieces
Step 2: Know the parts...
identify the "flat" area or "triangle" on the sides
this will be inserted on the other parts.
Step 3: Basic construction
the piece has sort of a candy wrap shape
two triangles on the sides and two slots on top and bottom.
triangles slide into slots.
Step 4: Locking on
if they tend to separate
a.- you made a sloppy fold
b.- folds are too tight or to loose
a+b really simple
a+b+c is simple once you join them togheter
at the end all three pieces are lock in place .
