801: (251/365) Oxi Moron

Posted by wonko on September 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

So when invigilating, you cannot mark or do anything that productively uses the time, so sometimes I choose a simple but repetitive fold that I can do without looking anywhere but in the direction of students being examined: This is Michal Kosmulski’s “Oxi” module – an interesting variation of Tom Hull’s “Phiz” unit.

793: (243/365) Jun Maekawa’s Tetra tetra

Posted by wonko on August 31, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Looking for today’s fold, I returned to a collection of bookmarked models from my growing collection of Tanteidan magazines: Made of 4 tetrahedral modules, each with deep tabs along a pair of adjacent sides, you then fold a pair of interlocking preliminary bases as the core.

782: (232/365) Wedge Flex

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

Topologically convoluted geometric modulars confuse the brain – shapes that morph into different shapes in stable but seemingly unpredictable ways are fascinating: This is a wedge-flex – a modular hinged construction of a series of triangular prisms (wedges) that fold, bend, twist and re-align in interesting configurations.

759: (209/365) Takashi Hojyo’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on July 28, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

Leafing through the Tanteidan Convention book #5, I came across an early Dragon design by Takashi Hojyo: This model is a modular – 3 parts (head/tail, body/legs and lovely wings) made from the same sized square, it needs glue (shhhh, I used a couple of nubs of double-sided tape) to keep it together but has a […]

748: (198/365) Brill’s Square Silver Star

Posted by wonko on July 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Busy times indeed – perfect for folding a 12 piece modular: Fairly simple modules that sit over one, inside another adjacent module, locking fairly positively into swirls of 4 “petals”, you get a shape that describes a cube when you look just at the points.

734: (184/365) Cube from Thirds

Posted by wonko on July 3, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Sometimes you need to fold a modular, and sometimes that modular really needs to be a 12 part construction: This is “Cube from Thrids” designed by Tung Ken Lim, a simple windowed cube that works well with a 3-colour scheme.

729: (179/365) A Whole Lotta Love

Posted by wonko on June 28, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Searching for daily folds, O came across an interesting 6 part modular cube that has much development potential: each face features a colour changed heart but I imagine that with a little inventiveness you could fashion diamonds, spades etc, or other things as the basic module solves the problem of liberating colour-changed flaps rather nicely.

726: (176/365) Star Block

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Sometimes a simple crease pattern leads to some interesting emergent geometry: This is Charles Santee’s “Star Block”, a 2 part modular that I found when trolling among Origami USA’s “The Fold” issue #22.

710: (160/365) Star Luisium Test Fold

Posted by wonko on June 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

The internet is an amazing thing, it affords connections between mortals and luminaries in the field: I noticed Sara Adams (a living legend in the Origami World) was asking for test folders to test diagrams she was drawing and I immediately put my hand up.
