the masu box refolded

In Boxes on March 1, 2012 by romi

Here are two crease patterns for a masu box. Look closely and spot the difference.

The one on the left is the CP for a masu box that is folded in the traditional way: that is, two opposite sides are folded first. The one on the right is the CP for a masu box that is folded in a different way, wherein one side is folded first, then the next one adjacent to it (either the left or the right side), then the one adjacent to the second, and finally the one adjacent to the third.

But why would you want to do the second method? It’s mainly because it produces a model in which one side is made securely in place by the one folded next to it. Hence, it is more stable than the traditionally folded masu box, wherein the last two flaps folded can easily be pulled out.
