Summary

A square tile that fits with itself and can make structures, like this cube

Instructions

I've had a printer for months now, it's about time I printed a cube.

These tiles don't snap together, instead they're held by fishing line or paperclips. Print at least six of them, in as many colors as you want, and construct any right-angle shape out of them, like this cube.

Excellent! This looks like a nice building block for puzzles such as Cubigami! (one of my favorite desk toys)

For anyone curious about it, George Miller wrote up the backstory of him developing it with Donald Knuth (http://www.puzzlepalace.com/#tag=9)http://www.puzzlepalace.com/#t..., and it's available in stores (http://www.amazon.com/Recent-Toys-CB2139-Cubigami/dp/B002SY4DF4)http://www.amazon.com/Recent-T....

I'm willing to bet there are other interesting math problems that solid-hinge-tiles like these could explore!

Okay, that's seriously awesome. I can make a layout of 18 of them like in Knuth's email and fold them into any shape? Cool! Totally doing that next.
