Designer Cardboard Cube

This is a design exercise I completed many years ago. It is made with cardboard, glue, and spray paint. Although the surfaces are very durable due the layers of spray paint, there were an excessive number of blades used to complete the job. The blades were quickly worn out after cutting through so much spray paint.

INSTRUCTIONS: Design in one plane then extrude. Make permeable areas continuous and intersect passages. Use intersections to make the structure rigid.
