sun spike cp

understanding oripa is much easier than I'd thought : )

 

and so here is a crease pattern for the sun spike corrugation.maybe it helps to understand how this model came to life.

 

this cp might be used with a bit of caution. I drew it just from the pictures of the sun spike because I'd already given the actual model away to my grandparents.

the square decorations are where they should be.

I am not 100% sure about the the inner blue star which makes the spike come upwards, though. actually when folding the model I improvised the angle of the spike. finally a bit of simulation in tomohiro tachi's freeform origami suggested that the way it is now should yield a nice model.

 

have fun!
