Azi revin cu inca un glob perfect pentru bradul de Craciun. Modelul se numeste Little Turtle, iar autorul lui este Tomoko Fuse. Tutorialul se gaseste aici.

Little Turtle
Craciun fericit tuturor!

Particip la concursul de Craciun de pe blogul Carte pentru mine.

Am vazut acest bradut pe site-ul lui Lipo: http://cutiameacuvise.blogspot.com/2011/12/and-you-asked-me-what-i-want-this-year.html si mi-a placut foarte mult, asa ca am incercat sa fac si eu unul. Nu mi-a iesit chiar ca al ei si nici nu am avut margelute rosii asa ca am facut globuletele tot din hartie.
Micul Mos Craciun a ajutat la impodobit :)


What is Modular Origami?

Diposting oleh Agus Sudrajat |

Modular Origami is the art of folding paper in modules and constructing a 3D or mathematical form with it. Sounds easy? I can assure you it is not. Personally, I consider modular origami to be the best part of the origami world. It takes time, it takes patience and it creates amazing things.

Modular origami, or unit origami, is a paperfolding technique which uses multiple sheets of paper to create a larger and more complex structure than would be possible using single-piece origami techniques. Each individual sheet of paper is folded into a module, or unit, and then modules are assembled into an integrated flat shape or three-dimensional structure by inserting flaps into pockets created by the folding process. These insertions create tension or friction that holds the model together.

Modular origami can be classified as a sub-set of multi-piece origami, since the rule of restriction to one sheet of paper is abandoned. However, all the other rules of origami still apply, so the use of glue, thread, or any other fastening that is not a part of the sheet of paper is not generally acceptable in modular origami.
The additional restrictions that distinguish modular origami from other forms of multi-piece origami are using many identical copies of any folded unit, and linking them together in a symmetrical or repeating fashion to complete the model. There is a common misconception that treats all multi-piece origami as modular, but this is not the case.

More than one type of module can still be used. Typically this means using separate linking units hidden from sight to hold parts of the construction together. Any other usage is generally frowned upon.
The word origami comes from Japan. "Oru" meaning to fold and "Kami" meaning paper.


The first historical evidence for a modular origami design comes from a Japanese book by Hayato Ohoka published in 1734 called Ranma Zushiki. It contains a print that shows a group of traditional origami models, one of which is a modular cube. The cube is pictured twice (from slightly different angles) and is identified in the accompanying text as a tamatebako, or a 'magic treasure chest'.

Isao Honda's World of Origami (Japan Publications  IBN 0-87040-383-4S published in 1965) appears to have the same model, where it is called the 'Cubical Box'. The six modules required for this design were developed from the traditional Japanese paperfold commonly known as the Menko. Each module forms one face of the finished cube.
There are several other traditional Japanese modular origami designs, including balls of folded paper flowers known as kusudama, or medicine balls. These designs are not integrated and are commonly strung together with thread. The term kusudama is sometimes, rather inaccurately, used to describe any three-dimensional modular origami structure resembling a ball.

There are also a few modular designs in the Chinese paperfolding tradition, notably the Pagoda (from Maying Soong) and the Lotus made from Joss paper.
Most traditional designs are however single-piece and the possibilities inherent in the modular origami idea were not explored further until the 1960s when the technique was re-invented by Robert Neale in the USA and later by Mitsonobu Sonobe in Japan. Since then the modular origami technique has been popularized and developed extensively, and now there have been thousands of designs developed in this repertoire.


Modular origami forms may be flat or three-dimensional. Flat forms are usually polygons  (sometimes known as coasters), stars, rotors, and rings. Three-dimensional forms tend to be regular polyhedra or tessellations of simple polyhedra.

There are some modular origami that are approximations of fractals, such as Menger’s sponge. Macro-modular origami is a form of modular origami in which finished assemblies are themselves used as the building blocks to create larger integrated structures. Such structures are described in Tomoko Fuse's book Unit Origami-Multidimensional Transformations(Japan Publications ISBN 0-87040-852-6 published in 1990)
