Modular Origami - models folded by Michał Kosmulski
Modular Origami This step is the same for the icosahedron, octahedron, or the cube. Start with a single piece of square paper. Fold it in half, and then open it again.
Instuctions for making this model Below is the Sonobe unit, designed by Mitsonobu Sonobe, which I learned from Kazuyo Inoue. Above is the capped icosahedron which she made for me from this unit; you need to make about 30 units for this, but you only need six if you want to make a cube. Since this must be very well known, I'm only putting a very brief picture of how to make it. The second line of instructions gives a little more detail for the last step. Just in case you want more details than above, you can find some more diagams here and here.

Modular Origami VRML Models Modular origami involves folding several identical or similar pieces (called units), which are then joined, usually without glue. Although I prefer single-sheet origami, some modular models are extremely attractive and elegant, not the least in the mathematical sense. VRML Models of Modular Origami
