Hexagon Star Twist Box: Variations
I have been preparing diagrams and sample foldings for a forthcoming publication.
In the process I reworked one of my hexagon designs for a Star Twist Box (the white box with the copper star in the center which is shown far left) and came up with some variations (the brown and white boxes shown on the right).
The crease pattern does both of the boxes shown on the right. One is put together by tucking the top sections under the adjoining left section and the other is put together by tucking the top sections under the adjoining right section.
The CP shows shading for the version on the far right - the box with the raised center section. Mate the colored sections with the corresponding color. Pale yellow sections indicate the that the mating surface is on the other (back) side. Mate the bright yellow parts with the underside of the pale yellow sections.
