Notes on Modular Origami
Modular models are where simple modules are first
folded, these simple modules are then lock together without the use of
glue to form the complete model. I have created many modular creations
using different number of simple modules. I have also created many Polyhedral
Models using modules. Polyhedral Models Folding are a subset of Modular
Models Folding. These are models that would usually delight a Mathematician.
They can also be use in teaching and education.
Diagrams avaliable here include modules to construct truncated cube,
rhombicosidodecahedron, truncated octahedron, icosidodecahedron, snub cube,
snub dodecahedron, truncated icosahedron, truncated cuboctahedron, etc.
Using modules that can interlock at various
angles, I have been able to devise many kinds of other geometrical models.
A 90-degree module will give you a cube, a 120-degree module can give you
truncated tetrahedron, cuboctahedron, dodecahedron, rhombicuboctahedron,
etc. With a 135-degree module, you can construct a trucated cube, rhombicosidodecahedron,
truncated octahedron, isosidodecahedron, snub cube, snub dodecahedron,
truncated icosahedron, etc.
