Checking a Net by Rolling a Cube

One way to check whether a given combination of polygons represents a net of a polyhedron is to roll the polyhedron over the combination. If each face of the polyhedron matches exactly one polygon of the combination, it is a net for the polyhedron. This Demonstration shows this procedure for cube nets.
