Cuboctahedron (Jitterbug)

An action model made from 8 Tung Ken Lam’s jitterbug modules. It’s easy and takes no time to make, you can also make 20 modules for a icosidodecahedron.

It can be collapsed in a diamond, but doesn’t look very nice due to the angles of the joints that prevent full collapsing.

Paper to use

I used 10cm square paper for the modules. Make 8 modules for the cuboctahedron or 20 for the icosidodecahedron.
