Most modular units are fairly simple to fold; however, assembling some models can be quite difficult, since some units cycle or "penetrate" one another. Static diagrams and pictures are often not enough to solve placement ambiguity; in this case, assembly is greatly eased if a finished model is available for reference. These VRML ("virtual reality") models are intended as an aid to folders who didn't yet finish or don't have at hand a "real" instance of those remarkable origami creations.
