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 […]

576: (26/365) Ornithorhynchus

Posted by wonko on January 26, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, Crease Pattern, fantasy, mammal |

It is a little known fact that people will believe just about anything. Tell them that a furry, egg laying, duck-billed, webbed footed, egg laying, pouch carrying mammal that lives in burrows underwater and protects itself with poisonous spines … and they believe it: There are few things more distinctly Australian then the Ornithorhynchus (colloquially called a “Platypus”) […]

558: (8/365) Mike Case’s Campfire CP

Posted by wonko on January 8, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Now I am not really new to the whole “fold from a CP” approach to origami, but I am not consistently good at it either, many models have just baffled me. Initially this CP was beyond my understanding also but you know, when you keep at something eventually something gives and it can make sense: […]
