Perils in Polyhedral Paper Pleats

Posted by Eeko , Jul 06 2013 · 181 views

So I've been having fun with modular origami, and thought I'd share with y'all what I've been doing.

First up is this guy.

In the family of Icosidodecahedra, this is the Compound of Five Tetrahemihexahedra (yes, that's its actual name).
30 sheets used in this one.

Next, is the Enigma Cube!
I'm particularly fond of this thing. Mine is kinda sloppy though.
The neat thing about this one is it has an illusory cube inside.
It's kinda hard to tell with that picture, so here's an awful gif.
Aren't I amazing at photography. :D
Anyways, 6 sheets for this guy.

Lastly, we have this monster.
Say hello to the Truncated Icosahedron, also known as a buckyball.
This one needed a full 90 sheets, and several, several hours to make.

Here's one last group shot for some size comparison.

Oy. Modular origami is a pain. I much prefer traditional single sheet models.
