I consider the following more of a design exercise than one of my official models. Anyway, since I'm participating with it in the monthly design challenge, I thought I asked if you know of someone who had folded it before. Do you? Thank you in advance :).

EDIT: I was also asking about a different kind of models, but I changed my mind. I'm currently creating, trying out different ideas. When I'm done, I'll ask you guys if similar models already existed or not.

This is another folding exercise with which I'm participating in the monthly design challenge. Do you know someone who has folded it before?

This is its back:

Aside from that one, I created the following obvious models. Can you please tell me if you had seen any of them or similar models before?

I haven't. Did you already ask on Spot the Creator? You could also ask through the mailing list?

I was inspired by Robert Foord's post on Spot The Creator. So I did post the images as a reply I also made a sliding box from the same pattern. However I haven't asked directly.[img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201811 ... 9e9ae3.jpg[/img]

Can you please tell me if this modular cube with corner pockets already existed?

Image

It has six modules in total. I made it to insert for example Froebel folds, just like this...

Image


Aside from that one, can you please tell me if this kusudama already existed?

Image

I only made and connected six modules in order to show you guys. If I had used duo color paper instead, the small pentagon would have a different color.

In that case, you would have also seen a small cube-like shape with a different color where the three modules connect.

Image

This is a single module, which is folded from a square. You need 30 in order to fold the kusudama.

It's folded from an isosceles straight triangle. I made it in 2015. Did this model exist before that?

Image

Thank you in advance.

Did this, or a very similar, kusudama unit already exist? It's for a 30 unit one.

Image
Left side shows the front and right side shows the back of the unit.


Image
This is how they connect.

Thank you in advance :).

This is the resulting kusudama from that unit. So, had any of you seen this kusudama before or a very similar one?

Happy holidays!

I also made this by altering the unit a bit. Does anyone recognize it from another creator or a similar modular model?

Image

Thank you in advance.

I dreamt I was folding this (first time for me)... and I was able to fold it for real. The bottom picture is of its back. Can you please tell me if you have seen a similar model before? It's OK if it's just a bit similar. I'd love to know!

Thank you in advance.

There’s a pop-up butterfly card by Jeremy Shafer that looks like it has a similar concept. I can’t say whether it’s similar enough to your model to warrant independent discovery, though.

Thanks Baltorigamist! There's a video of the model. I checked it out and it is very different from mine. Jeremy's model is somewhat more complex in order to get a cool-looking flapping action :o.
