Half-finished snub cube (twelve 90-90-90-90-90 modules)
The darker module at the lower right corner is made from genuine Post-It Notes; the others are knockoffs from Target.

Octahedron (six 90-90-90 modules)
This looks uglier than it should because it's an inverted model but it was made from non-inverted modules.

Whoops, that octahedron is 90-90-90-90 modules, not 90-90-90, obviously.

that is a very nice looking piece of paper
reminds me of people who write math notes quickly but have beautiful handwriting/calligraphy skills and it looks like it was prepared for hours

Rhombic dodecahedron
Modules: 8 135-135-135, 6 90-90-90-90
Post-It Notes: 3 * 8 + 2 * 6 = 36

The 135-135-135 modules were distressingly fragile during assembly, but they settled down after the model's completion.

Of course, these modules are not limited to 3-inch sticky notes. 8.5-inch paper works just as well.

OP here. Are my modules really SO boring that nobody is interested in trying them out? :-(
Photo is an octahedron folded from 4-leg square modules, but with the edges of the modules reverse-folded inward so that models with tighter vertices can be constructed. I'm not a big fan of the look, but the non-reverse-folded module can't handle the tightness of this polyhedron's angles.
>>
>>576200
I am trying them out today. Does it work with regular printing paper?

I'll post results when done.
>>
Sorry for the double post, but OP, do you have instructions as to how to combine the modules to make basic things until I get the hang of them? They definitely look interesting, and I would recommend you put them in some sort of pdf.
>>
>>577802
>Does it work with regular printing paper?
Yes, as you can see in >>570160.

>>577803
>do you have instructions as to how to combine the modules to make basic things until I get the hang of them?
I mean, it's pretty simple. Insert the tip of one module into the slot that's above the tip of a second module. The simplest model that you can make with the basic module is the cuboctahedron: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuboctahedron

>I would recommend you put them in some sort of pdf
I may do that in the future.

Working on new variations on these modules.
A hexagonal or pentagonal module may be useful for folding deltahedra (polyhedra composed exclusively of triangles, like >>576200 and >>577846). By a happy coincidence, the height of a hexagon is almost exactly seven-eighths of the height of a square, so folding an almost-perfect hexagon is a lot easier than you would expect. The pentagon proportions aren't quite so convenient; whether or not an approximate module would work well remains to be tested.

Pic related is a tetrahedron, made from the new hexagonal pattern shown in >>577907.
(The triangular pattern actually isn't new--I just didn't have room to include it in the instructions photographed in the OP. The hexagonal pattern, however, <em>is</em> new, as I didn't realize until recently that folding an almost-correct hexagon could be almost as simple as folding a perfectly-correct triangle.)

Folding guide (somewhat blurry)
As a (very) rough rule of thumb for gauging the time that a model will take, you can assume that each square module or triangle module takes five minutes and each hexagon module or double square module takes ten minutes.

...is what I would like to say, but I keep getting "connection error", so I'll upload the photograph later.

this style of module production isnt new, there is an old book about these i found at the minneapolis central library that shows these and others, also thats an OG image i had these instructions saved on my phone five years ago.
>>
>>579064
I assumed that such simple modules had been invented by others. At least I can claim the honor of inventing them independently.
