Today, DBBD’s new hobby interest is modular origami. The construction of these models is a calming, repetitive task that also requires some degree of precision. I constructed the following out of white A4 paper that I had cut into squares of about 7cm x 7cm.


TRUNCATED CUBE HEXAHEDRON

The truncated cube is created by truncating ends of a cube one third of the way into each edge. There is a bit of string attached to it as I was going to hang it up. (Assembly instructions for the modular parts for a truncated cube polyhedra can be found here.)


SMALL STELLATED DODECAHEDRON

The small stellated dodecahedron is basically a normal dodecahedron (12 sided polyhedra) with 5 pointy isoceles triangle bits sticking out. (Assembly instructions for the modular parts of a small stellated dodecahedron can be found here.)
