An orthotube consists of orthogonal boxes (e.g., unit cubes) glued
face-to-face to form a path. In 1998, Biedl et al. showed that every
orthotube has a grid unfolding: cutting along edges of the boxes so
that the surface unfolds into a connected planar shape without overlap. We
give a new algorithmic grid unfolding of orthotubes with the additional
property that the rectangular faces are attached in a single path — a
Hamiltonian path on the rectangular faces of the orthotube surface.
