Six Intersecting Squares

Here are two views of one of my recently made origami models: Six Intersecting Squares (pdf instructions) designed by Jorge C. Lucero. It’s very remenicient of the Five Intersecting Tetrahedra I’ve made several times before. The points of the five intersecting tetrahedra make a dodecahedron. I haven’t quite figured out what the points of this model form. In the spirit of full disclosure I will mention that since the model requires you to start with rectangles that are 1:2.2 I had to measure 4cm off of my 15x15cm origami sheets. I don’t usually like to measure and cut but it’s a cool looking model so I figured it was worth it.
