Hey,

i have watched a tutorial about a Magic spiral cube. In the tutorial they are used square paper. It is possible to do the same folding mechanism but use rectangle paper?

The link to the tutorial is [youtube] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LvinloJSks[/youtube]

Can anybody help me?

Thanks :)

Since it starts by folding opposite tips to the center, it wouldn't. Or at least you would end up with a irregular shape, but maybe it would still look cool and work. You could also simply fold the excess to make it appear like a square from the beginning, but I don't see much difference between that and starting from a square from the start.

May I ask: why do you wish to fold the model from rectangles instead of squares?
