Origami Solar System Click for Full Size Image

I started out just wanting to build a modular origami version of the globe that can be downloaded from the NOAA website. Once I built the original kit, I found that it was very easy to use the same templates with different graphics to make the rest of the solar system. This is the result.

Kits for all of the icosahedron globes are available on the Instructions page.

This is a project that I started back in 2004 (see the fold of the week project) but I got distracted by life and the project ended up not going anywhere for a long time. Now, in mid-20

In addition to my (probably overly-ambitious) Origami DNA project, I have constructed several other molecules as well.

This is a collection of images that other people have sent to me as well as photos that I have taken of other origami projects I have worked on over the years.

The Fold of the Week was something I started doing back in 2004 when I had a little more free time on my hands. One of these days I'd like to start folding on a regular basis again, but I'm afraid I don't know when that will happen. In the meantime, please enjoy the folds of the weeks of 2004.

Fold of the Week: October 25 - 31, 2004

Ico$ahedron - Lewis Simon and Bennett Arnstein

I got my first paycheck for my new job last week and to celebrate, I decided to do something fun with my money. After a bit of doodling, I decided that it had been a while since I made an icosahedron, so I went to the bank and got 30 nice shiny new $1 bills.

I used the triangle edge module from 3-D Geometric Origami which uses half squares (that is 1x2 paper) so I had to fold the ends in a bit since dollars aren't exactly 1x2. I also got a very nice pattern by making sure that only the backs of the bills were showing.
