We demonstrate that a 3 × 3 square can fold into a unit cube
using horizontal, vertical, and diagonal creases on the 6 × 6
half-grid. Together with previous results, this result implies that all
tree-shaped polyominoes with at least nine squares fold into a unit cube. We
also make partial progress on the analogous problem for septominoes and
octominoes by showing a half-grid folding of the U septomino and
2 × 4 rectangle into a unit cube.
