Six Intersecting Squares

This amazing modular origami is brought to us by Robert Lang. It’s an intermediate model if you have good spatial view, but it can get very tricky with the last square.

Just when I thought I had finished it I had to open half of the connections which weren’t made right, on the video you can see that the 5th square wasn’t tucked in right.

With this model you have to cut the paper exactly to 5:11 ratio for the modules. I cut 5cm by 11cm rectangles and got 9 out of an A4 paper, you need a total of 24. I used a thicker paper than normal printing paper, that makes the model a bit sturdier than with normal printing paper.

When assembling the modules I don’t recommend completely locking the modules right away one to another, instead push little by little on each one (see the video) so that every connection would fall in place at the same time.

Paper to use

I used a thicker paper than normal (160g/m2), this makes the model sturdier.
