Dipyramid/Parallelepiped Hook-Up (A4)

This Instructable will bring together the two geometric figures that we have discovered embedded in the geometry of A4 paper. For the nitty-gritty details required for making the individual figures, I will refer you to my previous submissions. This effort will focus simply on the configuration of the units in order to form the desired hinged assembly, seen here.

Supplies:

For this project you will need eight sheets of A4 paper and adhesive tape.

Step 1: Dipyramid Review

To proceed, see:

https://www.instructables.com/id/UnFolding-the-Mys...

Six Dipyramids are required for this assembly.

Step 2: Parallelepiped Review

See:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Revisiting-the-A4...

Two parallelepipeds are required.

Step 3: Assemble

Hinge together Dipyramids and Parallelepipeds as shown. Refer to previous submissions for detailed hinging instructions.

Congratulations, another assembly is complete!
