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!

Some process photos after the break. (click in more, on the corner)

Trefoil Knot Origami

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

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