#GoModular Day 3: Ruby Unit by Nick Robinson

Diagrams for Nick Robinson’s Ruby Unit are available to BOS members here.

Not a member – you can join today from just £10 to get this and many more diagrams, including everything in our #gomodular series!

We love that just 6 very simple folds is all you need to make a module, and the units fit together in an easy and solid way, and the design has a natural colour change that highlights the points of the 3d shapes you can make. This unit is so versatile you can decide whether just to fold 2, 6, 12, 30, or more to make a 3-dimensional model. It is made from silver rectangles, the proportions of A4 paper. Named after Nick’s gentle and sweet little cat, Ruby!

Taking it further…. Nick suggests so many variations, but we’re sure there are other possibilities – what other polyhedra can you find?
