642: (92/365) No Luck Involved

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

This fold was folded on our 34th wedding anniversary, chosen because a long and happy relationship is not reliant on luck: This dice is clever is a little obscure – rather than traditional dots each face has a partial coverage of colour.

634: (84/365) 3D Cube Illusion

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

Trolling around on the internet, as one does, I came across instructions for a 3D cube Illusion by Nick Robinson: I needed something that was relatively quick (times are busy, it was late) so thought I would give it a try.

631: (81/365) Four Cubes

Posted by wonko on March 22, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Sometimes a modular is deceptively complex, this 6-part modular from David Mitchell is no exception: Four cubes, interwoven in evil ways has done my head in for days now, I simply could not (1) imagine the shape it was going to end up; and (2) make the modules connect in ways that made sense.

629: (79/365) Artefact

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

I quite enjoy folding modulars – the way they combine to make a larger form can be fascinating and this module is no exception: This is Dave Mitchell’s “Artefact” module, it can be put together in 2’s and 6’s.

627: (77/365) Collapsible Cube

Posted by wonko on March 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Toys for people with ADHD are all the rage – people pay for things with switches, moving clicky bits and spinney things because, reasons: This paper toy continues to be an enigma. Made of 4 modules, it is a twisty cube that also folds flat in a myriad of ways that break your brain.

613: (63/365) David Mitchell’s “Gemini”

Posted by wonko on March 4, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

We are heading into assignment season in many of my classes – this means my students are busy getting on with it, occasionally asking for help, but I am stuck there inert and when I get bored I get naughty: …so I fold stuff to keep me awake. Modulars have an advantage that, once you […]

599: (49/360) Jun Maekawa’s Square Donut

Posted by wonko on February 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Starting with 2 squares of paper, some simple creasing, an odd thing happens – a solid shape emerges: This squarish donut is odd, it slides together with nearly no folding and creates an interesting geometry.

597: (47/360) Jun Maekawa’s “Gemini”

Posted by wonko on February 16, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Puddling around in an old Tanteidan magazine, I noticed that the first few pages are usually devoted to smaller folding projects – often modular in nature: This 2-part modular is fascinating and initially I found it baffling as the diagrams were not really clear (the illustrator was trying to represent stages that were 3d in […]

585: (35/365) Many Hands Make Light Work

Posted by wonko on February 4, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, geometry |

As a teacher and pastoral care “tutor”, I am always looking for ways to get kids working together. At the beginning of the year the tutor group room is a mixed-year level (6-12) mixture of strangers and established friends so “GTK” exercises (Getting To Know you) are great icebreakers if you can get them actually […]
