Introduction: Unbelievable Paper Toy 2 :)

Step 1: Make a Line

Make a line from 10 triangles
And color as on picture.
Fold all lines you have.

Step 2: Fold As on Picture

Fold line A_A pic.1
Now you must have pic.2

Step 3: Fold.

Fold B_B You must get pic.2

Fold C_C and glue b on a

Now you get your toy pic.3

Step 4: Fold AO BO CO

Fold AO BO CO insaid. Try to get all 6 pic.
Its really possible.

Look up M. C. Escher and his kaleidocycles.

I understand that it's a paper toy and I'm definitely going to make it and have my kids make it. I'm just not sure how to play with it.

A piece of paper with 3 sides is called a flexegon.

horrible you have to make a print out of this never lines up waste of time

how is this a waste of time? it only takes about 10 mins

You don't have to print it, you could just draw one - it's a simple matter to construct a row of equilateral triangles with a ruler and a compass. Failing that, just print one side - creasing all the lines of the printed side will show the triangles on the back.

i think you mean protractor, not compass.

author
Kiteman made it!(author)2008-10-25

No, I mean compass. Haven't you ever constructed mathematical shapes with a drawing compass?

author
peach_fart made it!(author)2008-10-25

compasses draw circles. protractors measure angles.

author
Kiteman made it!(author)2008-10-25
I said constructed, thus:

  • Draw a circle with a pair of compasses.
  • Do not change the setting of the compass, and mark off steps around the circumference of the circle. You will find that exactly six steps are made.
  • Join all six points with ruled lines, you have constructed a regular hexagon.
  • Join every other point with ruled lines, you have constructed an equilateral triangle.

If you draw a long straight line, and mark it off into equal lengths, then set your compasses to that length, you can construct a series of identical equilateral triangles along the line. Joining the tops of the triangles makes a strip of triangles, perfect for making flexagons.

If you still don't get it, talk to your mathematics teacher.

It's a Mini-ible!

peach_fart made it!(author)2008-10-25

oh, i thought you meant measuring 3 60 degree angles at equal lengths then connecting them. and by steps, do you mean how many times you turn the compass?

author
Kiteman made it!(author)2008-10-25

No, you sort of walk it around the circle.

Am I going to have to write an ible for this?

author
peach_fart made it!(author)2008-10-25

no, i just havent had geometry im only in algebra.

author
Kiteman made it!(author)2008-10-25

Only? I find algebra harder than trigonometry.

Even though I know how to do that, you should make an ible on how to construct different geometric shapes with a compass.

author
Kiteman made it!(author)2008-12-29

Maybe you're right, it's a disappearing skill.

(Project list gets slightly longer)

Wow, a whole instructable in a comment, I am actually amazed! I could be a critic and ask for pics, but i wont, Nice instructable by the way, both of you guys, kiteman, and Golics. :)

somethings screwed up. i keep on getting other peoples comments in my email. this is th 2nd one in 5 minutes.

Did you know kiteman that if it is a enclosed shape that the sum of all of it angles must and will always equal 180

author
Kiteman made it!(author)2009-07-20

What is the sum of the angles of a square?

i got it just rigt, i wouldve printed it but my printer wasnt woking and mines came out just fine and and im only 14, so just because you cant get it right doesent mean others cant do it so dont say thing like that

dude, don't be so negative. Geez, i thought it was cool. Just because you can't cut in a straight line, doesn't meen that the instructable sucks.

very cool :D mine is about the size of a coin...

what are the dimensions?
what if you don't have a protracter?

author

whats teh measerments

author

60 degrees. use a protractor.

what are the dimensions of the rectsangle thing at the beggining because i made one last night and it was very small i just traced it off the screen

author
robocrazy155 made it!(author)2008-08-04

if you make each side of the triangles 4mm then it comes out about the size of the one in the vid.

heheheeheheh ima try one =D and play with it whenever cuz it cants be crushed =D
