Cube — Woven Slit Module (WSM)

Cube

Made from Michał Kosmulski's WSM (Woven Slit Module), 3:2 paper (6 modules, slits outside).

Cube - Pyramid Vertex Module (PVM)

Cube

Made from Michał Kosmulski's PVM (Pyramid Vertex Module) (8 modules: 4 vertex units and 4 connector units).

Cube - trapezoid egde module (TEM)

Cube

Made from Michał Kosmulski's TEM (Trapezoid Egde Module) (12 modules).

Cube — Woven Slit Module (WSM)

Cube

In this assembly method, each of the cube’s faces is made of two modules which are both attached to both perpendicular modules in the same way. This results in the characteristic stripe pattern.

Made from Michał Kosmulski's WSM (Woven Slit Module), 2:1 paper (12 modules, slits outside).

Cube - Building Block Unit (BBU)

Cube

Made from Michał Kosmulski's BBU (Building Block Unit) (12 modules: 6 × D9, 6 × A1).

Cube - Building Block Unit (BBU)

Cube

Made from Michał Kosmulski's BBU (Building Block Unit) (12 modules: 6 × D18, 6 × A1).

Rectangular cuboid - Building Block Unit (BBU)

Rectangular cuboid

This model demonstrates how Building Block Units can be modified to form rectangular instead of square faces.

Made from Michał Kosmulski's BBU (Building Block Unit) (12 modules: 6 × A1 variant, 6 × A2 variant).

Cube - Building Block Unit (BBU)

Cube

Due to the E10 tile’s small flaps, it can’t be directly attached to the flaps of inner A1 tiles and an additional “sizing” layer of A2 tiles is needed for proper attachment.

Made from Michał Kosmulski's BBU (Building Block Unit) (18 modules: 6 × E10, 6 × A1, 6 × A2).

Large cube - Pyramid Vertex Module (PVM)

“Large” cube

Made from Michał Kosmulski's PVM (Pyramid Vertex Module) (20 modules: 8 vertex units and 12 connector units).

Cube - oxi module

Cube

Made from Michał Kosmulski's Oxi module (24 modules).

Cube — Woven Slit Module (WSM)

Cube

In this assembly method, units forming each face of the cube are woven, forming a hole in the middle.

Made from Michał Kosmulski's WSM (Woven Slit Module), 2:1 paper (24 modules, slits outside).

Woven Cube — Woven Slit Module (WSM)

Woven cube

In this assembly method, units forming each face of the cube are woven, forming a hole in the middle. The slits are hidden inside the assembly which gives the cube its woven appearance.

Compare with the Square Weave Cube for a similar effect achieved using only a single unit for each face.

Made from Michał Kosmulski's WSM (Woven Slit Module), 2:1 paper (24 modules, slits inside).

Adjustable Cube (maximum size) — Woven Slit Module (WSM)

Adjustable cube

This cube is a mechanical toy. Its size can be adjusted: the cube can grow or shrink by a factor of about two. It starts out as a cube with a pattern resembling a Jerusalem cross on each face. Units can then slide within each other so that the cube changes its size without any units needing to be disassembled.

Made from Michał Kosmulski's WSM (Woven Slit Module), 4:1 paper (36 modules, slits inside).
