Introduction: Origami Spiky Cuboctahedron

About: Hanging out with friends and playing video games is what I live for.

AKA Spiky Ball




Created and assembled by Daniel Martin Luna.





Step 1: Materials

You will need 12 square pieces of origami paper
If you want a small spiky ball, use small square pieces of paper. Vice Versa.

(Thin paper is not advised)

Step 2: Folding the Module

Fold the 12 square pieces into a Pinwheel style.

Step 3: Assembly

Insert the modules as shown:

There should be 2 pods of 4 modules.

Stick a pencil through the holes of the 4 modules.

Keeping the ends aligned, proceed to connect the 2 pods with the 4 remaining modules.

I added a solar powered LED light inside the Cuboctahedron.
