Waterbomb Modular Instructions

Standard disclaimer:  The simpler the unit the more likely it’s been done before, please post information and links if you’ve seen it, done it, or something very similar.  Creative commons applies to all and have a happy new year.

10.  Fold in half to the smooth sides of the two waterbombs meet.  Refer to picture 11.  that is the final unit

I recommend the 12 or 30 unit first as they are easier to assemble.  Refer to picks for connections at each vertex.  The twelve unit is functionally a cube and the 30 unit a dodecahedron.

Happy holidays from sock monkey.

So I have ended up on a tangent that I would eventually like to use for posting tutorials for my students and have lectures students can view if absent.  So I decided to try to create an origami tutorial.  I may have done this design before I sadly don’t remember.  Editing is a challenging business, as is seeing yourself (in all your redundant glory) on camera.  So for those who do post tutorials online kudos, it’s a lot harder than it looks.  I will within the next week post about Italy, but this comes first since it’s done.  Bear with me as it is my first attempt at video instruction and it is not polished all pretty, plus I am using the camera in my mac which doesn’t allow for as much flexibility in filming.  Youtube said it’s processing so here you go, remember creative commons applies to all unless stated otherwise.  Happy holidays.

Below is an corrugated automata that doesn’t inch the way I originally plan, but sometimes the best laid plans fail.
