Is there a trick to assembling this model? I find it very hard to follow other people assembling it and trying to rotate and twist my model to match theirs so that it all lines up. So I was wondering if there was a trick to the assembly? A way to assemble it by yourself without having to copy someone else.
thank you sara i am 11 nad been folding for 7 months and i tried this model when i have only been folding for about 3 months and failed but i tried it 3 days ago and i made it perfect after a few hours i came across this model because of you so thank you happy folding
Yesterday I finally finished my model.
it looks so neat!
May you make a instructional video for your Five Intersecting Tetrahedra? I am the club president of the origami club in my school and I think the beauty of this origami work will brainwash students to sign up for our club.
I am also wondering where you get all the resources?
Resources - Ah, I buy lots of books. And some origami designers also publish pdf diagrams online. I usually give references as to where you can find diagrams, and I will have used one of the sources I give there.
Intersecting Tetrahedra: There's a video on YouTube that gives explanations: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSdSH7XKTtQ
It took myself quite some time to figure out how to assemble the model, and I think the video might have helped (had I known of it back then). Do give it a try. I'm not sure whether I'll want to make a video on it, I have to admit. When I completed the model I told myself I should never ever repeat it again. :p
If you like two or more things then usually you try combining them, I like Origami and Math/Geometry so designs like this are a lot more satisfying to make.
Hi Sara! I had just discovered the huge amounts of videos you uploaded on youtube and I must say I am blown away by the amount of time and effort you must be putting in to these videos!
About the model you are presenting here, it's a model I've been wanting to do for quite a while. I see that it actually forms a Dodecahedron, so I think assembling it should be doable for me, but I have not found the diagrams to create the individual modules.
Do you think you could link me to a diagram for this?
Thanks, and thanks for all these videos of models I've never made before!
Diagrams are available at http://www.merrimack.edu/~thull/fit.html
By the way, many of my posts include information on where to find diagrams. Check this page again, just above the video. There's a "related website" listed, and "diagrams". If you have any ideas on how to make this more prominent, do let me know.
[In my instructional videos I usually give at least one source of diagrams in the beginning. That probably helps a bit.]
actually, I just received word from Mr. Hull and he moved his origami page to another link. The diagrams are at http://mars.wnec.edu/~th297133/fit.html
Oh thanks Sara! Yes I just realized the links were up there under my nose the moment I clicked submit...shoot!
Thanks very much for posting this on your website, I just now finished the model and it's a great addition to my modular origami collection!
The links are prominent enough, I was just being careless and too excited to try this model and asked where the diagrams were before looking more carefully.
i like the model i folded all the peices but then like you said it was so dam hard to put together and i got really fustrated but you know good thing you got help anywayz i ended up wasting like 10 shets of paper which sucks cuz it was nice paper
