High Genus Fullerene in Origami

A high genus fullerene in modular origami. Sort of the older brother of the traditional buckyball.


1440 pieces using a variation of Tomoko Fuse's Open frame unit I
Designed and folded by HB (me).


Many thanks for The Beaded Molecules for a lot of the inspiration!

Trefoil Knot Origami

Based on a theoretical molecular structure by Chern Chuang, I did my version of the Trefoil knot in modular origami.

info:
- 756 Phizz units (created by Tom Hull)
- folded and assembled by HB
- structural design based on the works of Chern Chuang

The final piece

It's finally done!

After much procrastination from my part, I finally had a "sort-of" deadline to meet. I wanted to show it to the Toronto Origami Society so lo and behold, in about 4 days I finished putting it together.

780 pieces. Way too much time.
