777: (227/365) Icosahedral Prism

Posted by wonko on August 15, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So I was messing with a low-grade triangle grid and what to do with it (I often fold grids to keep my eye in) and came across a rather neat geodesic hemisphere that used a section of it: So I cut 2 the same size and proceeded to collapse – one fits inside the other […]

753: (203/365) Origami Lampshade

Posted by wonko on July 22, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

I am clearly in the wrong business, if making money is the aim. Being slightly (well, I think it is healthy) obsessed with paper, when a new dealer arrives on the scene I take notice. A colleague asked if I knew of “The Paper Empire” – a new QLD outlet in Newfarm: I had not […]

728: (178/365) Bumpy Octahedron

Posted by wonko on June 27, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So you take a 2×1 rectangle, fold it into 4×2 squares, then halve the squares: Then bring one pair of adjacent corners for each square, sink the dimply corner to lock, then repeat.

723: (173/365) Feathered Tsuru

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, Crease Pattern, Traditional |

Few would argue that the Tsuru (crane) is the quintessential origami figure. Everybody starts there, the form is so familiar and the skills necessary to fold it form the backbone of so many models: While I have tried many variations of this model, few compare to Riccardo Foschi’s “feathered Tsuru”, a glorious and complex variation […]

722: (172/365) Baby Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 21, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, dinosaur, fantasy |

Reporting is a beast of a thing, particularly semester reporting where we seem to joust with nit-picking grammar on parts of a report that parents do not read. Slaying the beast is particularly satisfying: This is Riccardo Foschi’s Baby Lizard Dragon … thing. I found the CP and a photo of the finished model and […]

704: (154/365) Shuzo Fujimoto’s Stars n Squares Tessellation

Posted by wonko on June 3, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Starting with a square-twist tessellation, you add to the intensity by folding it some more: Alternating spin squares with stars, you get this nightmare of paper torture.

703: (153/365) Square Twist Tessellation

Posted by wonko on June 2, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Assignment time can sometimes be boring for a teacher, especially when kids are beavering away independently: This is a tessellation I have not tried before. Based on a square grid, diagonal squares rotate 45 degrees to lie flat again, causing pleat ripples that are cancelled out by adjacent twists – clever.

682: (132/365) Sy Chen’s Hangman

Posted by wonko on May 12, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry, humanoid |

Struggling to make it through Friday, I stumbled across Sy Chen’s Hangman: This paper puzzle allows you to gradually reveal parts of a hangman, suitable for a table top game.

681: (131/365) Tim Rickman’s Xenomorph

Posted by wonko on May 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid, scifi |

I am so excited that there is a new Alien Movie out today – Alien Covenant. Although I would dearly love to see it right now, I will have to wait until I am less busy and tired: Having already folded both Kade Chan‘s Xenomorph, Fernando Gilgado‘s Alien and Face-Hugger I was struggling to find something […]

591: (41/360) Miura Ori Fold

Posted by wonko on February 10, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Paper-influenced materials engineering has gained incredible momentum in the last few years as ancient and modern folding techniques get applied to modern materials: The Miura Ori fold is a fascinating corrugation that takes large flat surfaces, divides them up into “shallow” parallelograms, re-arranges the creases into alternate rows of mountain and valley across the folded […]
