There are (apparently) 261 distinct unfoldings of the 4D hypercube, a.k.a., the
tesseract, into 3D.^{1}
These unfoldings (or "nets") are analogous to the 11 unfoldings of
the 3D cube into the plane.^{2}
Usually only one hypercube unfolding is illustrated,

the one made famous in Salvador Dali's painting

*Corpus Hypercubus*. My question is:

. Has anyone made models/images of the 261 unfoldings as solid objects in $\mathbb{R}^3$?Q

(If not, I might do so myself.)

**Update**. See also the followup question, "Which unfoldings of the hypercube tile 3-space: How to check for isometric space-fillers?."
