Fold flat dodecahedron

Sat, 11 Sep 2010

Further experiments with fold flat shapes, this time a flat folding dodecahedron.

It's a slightly tricky shape to fold flat as there is no straight line dividing the shape in two. To get over this I have added five tabs, each with a double crease which allows the shape to fold flat. It works reasonably well but I'd prefer that it was more stable. Further experimentation needed I think. There is a file for members to download if you'd like to give it a go.
