Lucky Star Box

Origami box with Lucky Star molecule. The molecule can be tessellated and is based on hexagonal 8×8×8 grid.

 

I called it this way because I was happy about this design which I find quite elegant. Even though I have seen some similar ideas (e.g. by Alessandro Beber and Peter Keller), I wasn't able find proof of anyone creating exactly the same design before, so if it really is new, I will feel lucky to have found it. If I do learn of someone folding it before, I will still feel lucky to have reinvented it.

 

Update: I learned that the molecule is structurally almost the same as Day and Night Tessellation by Haligami, the only difference being how the rays of the star are locked.
