Results of My Slide Together Experimentation
I used cardstock for all of these models.
Here is the PDF of all of the models.
I decided to use a circle and a square with 60 degree angle slits. It turned out harder than I anticipated. I couldn't align the circle and square correctly. So I resized the squares and the circles to be the same size...diameter = diagonal. I used 6 squares and 8 circles. The figure turned out to look like a truncated octahedron with circles instead of hexagons. Very nice! Here is the .Studio file. Cut one of each file.
Circle Square Slide Together
I wanted to use two different shapes to create a cube. How could I make a cube? A cube is six sided so I would definitely need six squares. But what other shape is needed to hold it together? A triangle...if you slice off the corner of a cube you will get an equilateral triangle. An equilateral triangle has three 60 degree angles. I created a equilateral triangle and added slits at 60 degree angles so that the corresponding square would slide together. I used 6 squares and 8 triangles. Here is the .Studio files. Cut one of each file.
Triangle Square Slide Together
A cube slide together. I think the Designer Software is so versatile. It is so easy to make shapes and test them out quickly to see if they work. The slits are a little big in this model but I think you might need it because the paper has to be bent in order to put the model together. Here is the .Studio file. Cut one page. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7oGIyVDbRGYTjV2YzlCeDY3QkE/edit?usp=sharing
