**First off, for purely aesthetic
**

reasons it is striped—but more importantly, the last folds must be made at a strange angle

to allow you to make a dodecahedron's pentagonal face. First off, let's make the individual

unit.

Step 1 Create the Basic Stripe

Valley fold a sheet of coloured paper (coloured face down) into three equal sections:

Tips

Folding into three is not natural and there are many clever ways to get it accurate. On the other

hand, you can just cheat...which is what I do.

How to Cheat, Part 1: Tape a ruler to a cutting board or piece of cardboard, being careful

to make sure that the tape follows the angle/step of the ruler onto the board. Determine on

the board where 1/3 of your paper size is. On this cutting board and paper size

(150X150mm), it is the first heavy line (50mm). In other circumstances, make a pen mark

after careful measurement on the board each side of where the paper will be. Before I had a

marked up cutting board, I often used to tape a ruler to a piece of graph paper.

How to Cheat, Part 2: Jam your paper up against the ruler and take the edge closest to

you up to the 1/3 line you marked in first part. I would normally have all eight fingers holding

the edge down, and when I was satisfied that both sides of the coloured edge are lined up

with the 1/3 line, I would press my hands down and make a gentle crease. Then, after

checking that the coloured edge is still lined up on both sides (and holding the paper firm

with other hand), I would use the pad of my forefinger to make that crease sharp.

How to Cheat, Part 3: Spin the paper by 180 degree (coloured side still downwards) so

that the crease you made above is now jammed against the ruler. Open the fold of paper

slightly and slot the other edge until it meets the crease.

When the edge is snuggled up against the inside of the crease—and you have checked

both sides are straight—gently make the crease. Double check that the fold is correct, and

then sharpen the crease.

You should now have a piece of paper that is folded into thirds to the best of your ability.

Once you have done this a few times, your fold will be very quick and pretty accurate. The

only more accurate way I know is measuring individually and scoring, but that is very time

consuming.

End of cheat ;-)

Next, fold the edge to the crease you have just made and then unfold. Repeat at other end.

Again, fold each edge to the fold you made in stage 2. Do not unfold this time. Repeat for

the other end.

Fold this section over again. Repeat for the other end.

Flip the paper over and valley fold at the same crease as you made earlier. Repeat for the

other side.

Step 2 Create the Special Angle for a Pentagonal Face of a

Dodecahedron

Now we need the special angle. I have drawn the fold lines on:

You will note that the shaded area is a perfect half-pentagon:

Now, I am sure there is a beautiful way to create these angles using just origami, but I am

not a great fan of over complicating things, and decided to cheat and just measure. To get a

half pentagon as shown below, I folded 19mm along the sort edge and 58mm (for a 150mm

x 50mm unit). To speed up and regularize the process, I sellotaped a ruler and set square

to a cutting mat at the correct spacing.

Do this at opposite corners.

Warnings

These figures will only work for a 150mm X 50mm sonobe unit.

To work out the figures for the correctly sized sonobe unit, a little trigonometry is

(unfortunately) called for:

First off, you need to find the side length of the pentagon (which I have called x). You can

find x by dividing the width of the sonobe by Sin(54). From the diagram above, it is clear

that the distance from the corner on the short side (marked as A) is the width, less half the

pentagon side length.

Even without a calculator this is easy: go to Google and enter: 50 - (50/sin 54

degrees)/2 and it will return the answer for a sonobe width of 50. So, all you need to do is

replace both the 50's with your width. By the way—you need the degrees to stop google

using radians.

To find B, the distance from the corner on the long side, we recognize that B is the

pentagon side length multiplied by Sin 72. Again, enter into Google:(50/sin 54 degrees) *

sin 72 degrees. You must not skip the brackets, and you should replace the 50 with the

width of your sonobe.

Warnings

NOTE: Sonobe have “handedness”—you must do the same corners every time, i.e. always

do top right & bottom left or vice versa. DO NOT MIX!

Once you have the first two folds at each corner, join the ends of each fold on the long

edges with a fold across the middle:

Step 3 Getting the Thing to Hang Together

There is no way that this model would have structural integrity (there is no gripping or

locking), so we either use glue (boo, not traditional at all) or use the other (still un-orthadox)

method of cutting. To preserve the shape, we cut a little flap as follows:

Warnings

I have just noticed that my folding is a little awry in the photo above. As this is not a natural

shape for sonobe, you have to try to be really accurate and get your folds spot on.

In the end, you need thirty base units like the one above. It is recommended that you use 6

of each colour as this will make the nicest patterns.

Step 4 Putting it Together

This is not as difficult as it looks. There are two stages to get your head around. The first is

connecting one to another.

On these vandalised sonobe, I have marked where the pockets are (two on each unit facing

in opposite directions). To make the basic join, you slide the green sonobe into the pocket

of the yellow until line B is aligned with line A. If you squeeze the green unit in, then fold

over the yellow one—the fold clamps the little tag of the green one (helpfully folded out of

view on this one).

You then put a third one into the pocket of the one you just slid in.

(Sorry for change of colours, by the way.)

So the brown goes into the green, and then the yellow into the brown.

Then a pink goes into a yellow, and then a red in turn goes into the pink, and then the bit

that holds it together at the end of the green that you began with goes into the red,

completing the cycle and making your first pentagon:

So each unit both slots into another one AND has a different unit slotted into it. And each

unit has half its length protruding from the side to start a new pentagon. From here on, it is

really just rinse and repeat as far as putting the bits together.

I am missing my pictures from the rest of the build (and I am loathe to take it apart), but

from here on is not that difficult. I will get some more pictures at a later date, but the

principle is pretty straightforward.

Based on the above pentagon you have 5 loose ends/half unit. Each is the start of a new

pentagon. Each of the new pentagons will contribute one half unit to each of its neighbours

(and will receive one half unit from each of its neighbours).

The only thing to be concerned about is getting the colours straight.

The pink unit I have all four of my fingers on is one unit! (Note it bridges two pentagons.)

In this picture though, there are three separate pink units:

If you stick to the plan of when a unit terminates at a corner—as the pink one does on the

top face—each of the contiguous faces should start a pink unit at the same corner (and

apply the same rule to the other four colours). You will end up with a complete model with

no repeats or faces with two colours the same!

This is the first instructional article I have done, so if think there are not enough details—or

too many—comment below, plea
