Introduction: 12-sided Springring
A mechanical ring that can be used for playing or you can simply wear it.
It is a small challenge to fold this ring and the folds are tiny so that you could have maybe troubles.
Nevertheless you can increase the printsize (over 100%) of the cp to ease modelling.
Step 1: What You Need:
- A toothstick for the tiny folds
- Printed CP
- Glue (stick)
At first cut along the black lines (PDF), then prefold the pattern.
Step 3: Folding Steps
Form the prefolded paper to a ring, the glueing area is shown as dotted marks.
Fold and tuck the frame. Then repeat the steps for the another side.
Step 4: Final Steps
At last you fold the spring structure and repeat the pleats inside the frames with a toothstick.
