Video Shout-Out

This is a video response to the Spiral Data Tato from whiteandfluffy701d, which has been on YouTube for a few months and somehow went right by me. A very nice production. (And, I should mention, detailed directions for this model can be had at Instructables.) Also well worth noting is this, which I believe to […]

How Blue Can You Get?

For those who can’t be bothered with ranting: Barack Box Crease Pattern (2.5 MB) It’s been a while since we launched into one of our trademark political rants and indeed, the evil of these times has been so oppressive that our obligation to denounce the manifold sins and wickedness of the present administration sometimes slips […]

Tumbling Dice

I was rooting around in my file cabinet, looking for some piece of prose about Wendy that I had written during the Pliocene or the Pleistocene, and I came across this crease pattern. I remember drawing it — it was probably for Imagiro, an APA I belonged to, once upon a time. The model itself […]

Catch a Falling Star

We’re back from the Convention in New York and our head is still spinning a bit, but not so’s you’d notice. We can report that a good time was had by all and that Mélisande*‘s and my class on Monday went very well, indeed. Tato boxes were the topic of the day and it was […]

This and That

We have been uncharacteristically quiet of late — it goes with the Marshwiggle physiognomy and the unwieldy amounts of pollen in the air. But there are a few things that want mentioning. ¶ Much thought is going into tato boxes, whereof the dining room is slowly being buried. A crease pattern for the above. It’s […]

A Simpler Way

I have this longish post about the evils of encroaching copyright, but it keeps boring me to death and I still haven’t finished it. So, while we’re all waiting for that little gem of wisdom to roll off the presses, why not take a whack at a simpler version of the Frangipani Box? This is […]

Projective Planes Drifter

Cue the Ennio Morricone. Susan Goldstine came to College this week and gave a talk on topology, so I cut out of work early and attended. (Susan is no slouch of a folder, herself, by the bye — she’s done a lot of nice modular work.) Topology, I understand in dribs and drabs and some […]

The Steamed Bun Box

Dang, that sounds a little outré. But I really am referencing Chinese food. The sides bulge over the base, giving it that bun appearance. This is, of course, just a variation of the Smart Waterbomb, but it’s one I like. The small radius of the octagon is one-quarter the radius of the circle. Steamed Bun […]

Mate Kudasai

Camera Stellata 4 Crease Pattern When I was in school, I had this roommate, Mark, who was from southern California and was studying International Education about as rigorously as it possible to study such a subject. He got a lot of phone calls. This was back before we had modems and google and so on. […]

Shameless Self-Promotion Dept.

Here’s a fine use for the Spiral Data Tato — Jenn and Paul, down Carolina way, have a group of friends who make mixes for each other at the end of the year. They chose this model to be their cover. Imagine the éclat their mix got this year, even before it was opened! Bravo, […]
