Fujimoto Cube with Hexakaidecagonal Iris Closure

Fujimoto Cube with Hexakaidecagonal Iris Closure

One of those four-in-the-morning ideas – what if we graft an iris closure onto a Fujimoto cube? Wow – two great tastes that taste great together.

Here’s the CP and I know what you’re saying. You’re saying, “Yetch! What’s with the green lines? Blue for mountain, okay, red for valley, sure, but green?”

Relax – green is to show folds you make to mark the edges. Guidelines, as it were.

Catch you on the flipside.

    Colorblind folders (like myself) get frustrated with you “colorists” who decide line directions should be dictated by hue differentials!

    I’m sure it works particularly well for most, but it leaves me awfully cranky.

    Thankfully it is possible to just guess how things are supposed to fold, and just go from there.

    Thanks for posting the CP for this, I’ll give it a try!

    I have a cousin in Indiana – one of my myriad cousins in Indiana – who holds that colorblindness, like red hair, lefthandedness or Methodism, is a moral failing. Of course, she is a carrier….

    Honestly, Eric, you should exert yourself more.

    But in the meantime, I shall avenge thee of thine adversaries: Gjerdite CP.

    >:-( What’s wrong with being lefthanded? I am (ops! shouldn’t say that, it kind of proves your point)

    My son has red hair and lefthandedness (both I’m deprived of), so I can’t decently consider these as a moral failing.

    Thanks for the CP !

    Why, Jane, it were maladroit in me to be always mocking the intolerance of others and never to mock my own. In fact, such gaucherie would seem almost sinister, wouldn’t you say?

    You do have a way with words.

    Well! so much has been said here since I last looked.

    Here’s the deal: I have red hair (my facial hair, anyway) and I am lefthanded, as well as being colorblind. so apparently I am a complete failure from a moral standpoint!

    My wife is a full-bore redheaded Irish lass, who personifies the stereotypes of hot-blooded Irish women… so I suppose she’s a moral failure too 🙂

    Your way with words is beyond compare, and the depth of your puns leave me gasping for breath from laughter. very good.

    I shall make a more concerted effort from this day hence to exert myself more strongly, and tame the savage moral turpitude that the rods in my retina have slumped into. Shameful, really.

    Hello !

    I’d like to congratulate you for this model. The folding sequence is very clever. And thanks for sharing it with us : I’ve just folded it. You can see it on my weblog : http://orizuka.free.fr/index.php/2007/03/12/92-fujimoto-cube-with-hexakaidecagonal-iris-closure

    See you !
