Origami Nut

Home | About | RSS



A very nice modular origami that has the possibility of being expanded: you can assemble 18 modules to make a truncated tetrahedron, 24 for a cuboctahedron, 30 for a dodecahedron like the one on the picture, 48 for a rhombicuboctahedron and so on.

The modules are 120 degree units, by David Shall. I think you can figure out what the assembling steps are, it took me about half an hour to assemble it so I couldn’t tape it all.

Paper to use

You need 24, 30 or 48 square papers, they don’t have to be very big, but the bigger the easier to assemble.
