A truncated rhombic triacontahedron. I feel like I made it too colorful; Six colors (instead of the 30 here) would've worked just as well, if not better. Anyway, the name implies that there's order to the colors chosen, and it's true: The pentagons are surrounded by their complementary color, or as close to it as I could get (red pentagon surrounded by green units, blue pentagon surrounded by orange units, etc).
Swirly Truncated Icosahedron Origami Unit Fantasy Tomoko Fuse Amount of units: 270 units worktime: up to 10 hours size: 10-15 cm difficulty: medium notes: Very nice looking buckyball, very easy units, weak connections made it harder to assembly. Anyway I really enjoyed making this ball. I begun making right after Christmas and with long break I finished it just after exams session. Really enjoyable stuff and probably I'll make something big very soon
Pokręcony Dwudziestościan Ścięty Origami Unit Fantasy Tomoko Fuse ilość modułów: 270 modułów czas pracy: do 10 godzin wielkość: 10-15 cm poziom trudności: średni uwagi: Bardzo ładna piłka, łatwe moduły, ale słabe łaczenie utrudnio proces łączenia. W każdym razie bardzo mi się spodobała praca nad tym modelem. Zaczęłam zaraz po świętach Bożego Narodzenia, a skończyłam po dłuższej przerwie zaraz po sesji egzaminacyjnej. Trud włożony w wykonanie tej kuli sprawił, że mam ochotę na złożenie czegoś równie sporego
o_O This origami is my first OWN model !!! This is my of an art trade with I wish that you will like it ----- Designer : ME Folder : Me Time spent : 1 hour Paper : My own paper too x3 ----- Happy folding !! ~<3
by uploading this files i can say i feel happy, proud and honored happy that i finished it, of course but proud and honored, that i had the chance to build it
with this model i finished my first collaboration with an other dA member
ok, i know you all wanna download as fast as possible the model sheets, but i write this anyway, because it means a lot to me.
in the center of 2010 i started to ask some 3d artists about their models and if they would share it for a papercraft project.
i recieved a lot rejections but Griphinator was the first who agreed and send me the mesh of his Spidertank
so give him a big hand too
well, i had a lot of problems in the last part of the year and it took a bit longer, more that i expected but finally i...... we can bring you this
and i guess, not even Griph expected that rotating system of the top
But this model has also another important background for me not only it's a very cool mecha design and a reference for upcoming collaborations i hope it's a wakeup call for other 3d artists, that there are freaks out there with a lot of skill, who would love to take your visions into reality
ok, but now to the model with downloading this file, you get three pdo's
one with folding lines and texture (lined) one with folding lines but without texture (white label) and one without folding lines but with texture (lineless)
so you need as always the Pepakura Viewer which you can download here
the lineless version is hard, specialy when you reduce the objectivity of the cut lines
i printed the sheets with 20% objectivity and it was not easy
the pdo's are not protected, so you can still change the size with the Pepakura Desinger
because it's an OC of Griph you will NOT get texture this time
the model comes on 12 pages with 68 pieces
some word to the bloggers
ok, normaly i'm mister nice guy but this is important for me because this is a collab, you have to give credits to Griph too! otherwise i can't allow it to write a blog entry
you have the permission to use my photos you DON'T have the permission to use the renders of Griph except he write it here in the comments ore you ask him about it
this model is a Deviantart only download so do not upload this model somewhere else and the most important thing
this model is free and should it be so let it be!
to download the model click on the download button on the right side you can thank dA for, that i can't write the direct link anymore
and trust me, i search for my stuff
if you wanna write a critique feel free but don't critique the model itself

This seems to be a very popular model (and for good reason). I've finally managed to fold one. My previous attempts have involved the use of wrapping paper (which ripped very easily) and lokta (didn't rip but couldn't hold a fold very well).
I finally took the time to buy a roll of 24" parchment tracing paper to fold complex models such as this one. I didn't find the folding sequence to be particularly difficult; it just took a while.
