It may be getting silly now.

Deconstructionary tendencies.

  5. Seniath says:

    If only I had access to a colour printer! B&W just wouldn’t do the WCC justice :(

  6. Wood says:

    I understand what the cube is and how to fold it, but what are the other things on the picture ?

  7. freebob says:

    those extra bits are for the edges to go in between the corner parts

  8. Wood says:

    Does anybody have a photo of the finished cube ?

  9. Wood says:

  12. B33b3s says:

    No weighted companion cube will ever be as good as your first. I miss you Cubina, may you burn in peace.

  17. Patrick says:

    First time I’ve made something like this – took a lot of tape and patience. :)

  18. drunkymonkey says:

  19. MrTrent says:

    Patrick, sir, that is incredible.

  20. Seth410 says:

    Looks great even without the ‘depth’ but I taped nickels onto each panel inside, I like my Weighted Companion Cubes to have a bit of…weight.

  21. Evil_T0NY says:

    I think those other LITTLE pieces are to make it look 3-deminsional or something…you know the corners that stick out and such.

    I cut one of those out, and you need a little man’s fingers to make those folds, for the life of me I can’t do that part….but I did make the basic

    ——->> CUBE

  22. A Person says:

    How do i put the little corner pieces on? I have no idea how.

  23. Kapowski says:

    Great idea! I printed it but the little peaces are way tooooooo small. I wish i had a printer that could print huge paper!!!

  24. Farbror Fazer says:

  31. Who cares says:

    Ok how i make it guide plz anybody

  32. anon says:

    rules 1 & 2

  33. Nikita says:

    If you print and paste the printable conpanion cube large on microsoft word. Then on a seprate piece of paper, you can print out the small parts, you can have more room on the page to enlarge the small pieces. Now you have a bigger companion cube.

  34. browen says:

    please make instructions on how to make this or a video.

  35. Mach10X says:

    Those of you asking for a guide please take a look at Patrick’s cube: http://i22.tinypic.com/2iw3z6.jpg
    In order to make precise folds you’ll need to pre-score the fold lines with a scoring tool. An example of a scoring tool could be an exacto knife with very light pressure: just enough so that the paper will fold at the scored line. A good qualtiy paper is important since it’s a bit thicker. Be sure to leave tabs to allow attachment. If you study Patrick’s cube you should be able to figure out where to cut and where to score.

    now all we need are turret papercrafts!

  43. Tip says:

    For the little parts I used a toothpick,I just needed to grab it with the very edge of my finger in the very edge of the part,and then pushed it down.

  44. Zandieer says:

  45. Ivy says:
