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 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?

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.
