Origami Moving Cubes (seamless cubes version)

Designed by Jo Nakashima (06/2019)
Difficulty level: intermediate (or easy if you make the old connection)
My paper: 12cm x 12cm origami paper (one sheet per cube)

This is an update on the origami Moving Cubes using a new variation of the unit: the seamless cube. Now it looks better on the top and bottom of the cubes:

First version
Seamless cubes version

There is also a new way to connect the units which is thinner than the previous version so the cubes have better movement, but the downside is that it is harder to make. If you think it’s too hard, you can use the previous version of the connections, it still works the same way.

To fold this model you’ll need only square sheets of paper (one per cube), everything is connected without glue nor tape. It was based on the Pandora’s Box designed by Yami Yamauchi, one of my favorite origami cubes.

Helpful videos

To make the origami moving cubes you’ll need to fold a 5×5 grid on every sheet of paper that you’ll use. In the tutorial I show the “origami way” to do that, without a ruler or any kind of tool. But the videos below can help you in this task:
