Depending on the direction of the solid walls of the cube, the open sides of the block, and its position in the whole structure, it will behave differently. This allows the user to customize the mechanical properties of each block.

For example, one building block can be folded into a structure that can be easily compressed, or, conversely, given a shape that can withstand significant stress.
