My first functional Yoshimoto Cube

Ultimately I would like to 3D print a fully-functional Yoshimoto Cube in one piece, but I really need a solid reference model to help me visualize the design. So I used the SD300 to build the individual hinged panels and glued them together one-by-one.

This black one is almost assembled; the hinged panels at right will be joined with the already-assembled group at left.
I built and assembled a pair of Yoshimoto cubes, one in black and the other using transparent amber.

The geometry of a Yoshimoto Cube is peculiar and confusing, so it'll sure help to have a physical model for reference! So far I've observed a few details that could enable me to build the model in one piece.
