golden_lily: (Origami Lilies)
This model was done at the office one day when we had NO work. 60 units made of 1 1/2 in. x 1 1/2 in. Post-It notes and tape. Obviously not as clean as I'd like, but also not bad for the materials.

The diagram I used doesn't credit an author, but you can find it here, regardless.

This is either a truncated icosahedron or a dodecahedron, according to wiki, and I can't quite tell the difference. We'll just call it the PHiZZ Ball, because, unlike the man who invented it, I'm not a mathematician.

Created from 30 of Thomas Hull's PHiZZ (Pentagon-Hexagon Zig-Zag) Units. Folded out of 3 in. x 3 in. Post-It Notes. DO NOT USE POST-ITS FOR THIS MODEL! They are way too thick. I also tried for proper 3-edge coloring, but failed at the very last moment. Damn.

So the next step is to do the Torus, right? ;)

The unit itself is here, but I couldn't have done it without the video on joining the units, here.

The model is made from 30 Sonobe units, originally designed by Mitsonobu Sonobe. Paper is three different kinds, all cut down to 3 in. by 3 in.

I found a ton of sites with the basic instructions, but the one I used is here.

This was today's project on my 8 hour drive back and forth across the state. Two joined cubes made of Tomoko Fuse's Open Frame Units. Paper is ~6 1/2 in. origami paper, cut into fourths.

Ideally, they'll end up being something like this.

The model's not available online, but, with an Amazon account, you can search through the book it's from.
