Subject: [Icehouse] Origami pyramids
These look more complicated than the origami pyramids I've seen online
before. Are they stackable?
My non-origami paper pyramids are much simpler to build but more difficult
to cut out. Have you tried my design yet? They don't require any tape or
glue to keep them together.
I haven't tried yours exactly, but I'm familiar with similar designs.
One cool thing about the real origami ones made from standard
photocopy/printer paper is that they have enough bulk to them to stack with
proportions pretty darn close to the commercial plastic pyramids. For
isntance, three stacked smalls are about the height of one large.
And of course *origami* pieces don't need tape or glue either.
BUT... there is no denying that your design is CONSIDERABLY easier to
construct, and that advantage certainly shouldn't be disregarded.
