Makalu assembly tips

Robert J. Lang’s Makalu (Six Intersecting Pentagons) is an interesting wireframe model and part of his Himalayan Peaks series. This articles contains some tips on assembling the complete model (which is the hard part of making it) once you’ve folded the units.

FIT assembly tips

Five Intersecting Tetrahedra (FIT), designed by Tom Hull, is probably the most popular model of the woven polyhedron type. While folding the units is quite straightforward, connecting them in the proper manner is not. This article describes the rules I use when I assemble this model.

Envelopener usage and care

Envelope openers are very useful tools for origami folders, but they have a number of quirks. This text describes some techniques I found useful for avoiding split corners and other mishaps while cutting paper with envelopeners.
