.. 2008. where you fold the top right corner at 45 degrees to the center line then fold the triangle over that.instructables. Jan 28. 2008.. Like I said before I didn't come up with the design. Actually this is modular origami.. To decrease bulk why not just fold the corner over (from pencil mark to pencil mark) then clip off the top corner to about 6mms? Not only that but it might speed up construction a bit. 5:38 AM REPLY I know a good way 1.

If I find the book I'll add the title.. or a tab design that allows the units to fold-lock the tabs into place.

I saw it from a book. 8:18 AM REPLY Kristen81 says: ok. but ok I agree with you about the glue. i must ask.. 2009. tessellating units are very hard to design. it is very difficult to comp up with 'morphable' modular designs such as this one.. 2008. the sonobe and phizz units are scaleable modular units. but I can't remember the title so I can't give credit.I didn't think of that:) Aug 31. 2009. try modding the unit design to creating a locking tab. trace out the squares (step 1) using a ruler put 4 blank sheets beneath the template and cut it using a utility knife. 2009. did you come up with this design? if so..
