It is unknown whether every polycube (polyhedron constructed by gluing cubes
face-to-face) has an edge unfolding, that is, cuts along edges of the cubes
that unfolds the polycube to a single nonoverlapping polygon in the plane.
Here we construct polycubes that have no edge zipper unfolding where
the cut edges are further restricted to form a path.
