Today I'll introduce you a spring with telescope function. You can stretch and squeeze it.
There is an octagonal version of this model by 'oschene' (he is in my followers list) and I wondered if it's possible to make a variation of this model (pentagonal or n-gonal). And yes everything is possible if you don't give up.
The CP is simple to understand, it repeats the same pattern again and again. The only difference is the reversed folding process (mountain folds instead of valley folds and the opposite) between spring structure and frame.
The steps are very similar to my last instructables ('How to fold a Polygon', 'Pentagonal Antiprism Lampshade').
So let's get started.
Step 1: Preparations
You print out the crease pattern fullsized (attachment below) and bring it to the right format (cut the black borders off).
Then you precrease and prefold everything like shown in the cp.
-Blue is mountainfold
-Red is valleyfold
