Caja fotográfica de triedros / Trihedron Photo Box

LEARN HERE HOW TO FOLD IT!

by  Gerardo

Esta es la caja que les había prometido mostrar. Fue a partir de este modelo que creé la variación: Caja Cúbica de Triedos. Como verán, usa los mismos módulos: los triedos. Cuando Juan nos propuso a leidygra y a mí crear nuevas cajas, pensé que no sería capaz de crear una nueva caja, porque me sentía muy satisfecho con las que había creado. Entonces se me ocurrió hacer una pequeña broma, como cuando leidygra dijo que su modelo era el más útil de todos por estar plegado con un billete =P


Había pensado en crear una caja que no fuera realmente una caja. Por ejemplo, crear una "caja de dientes", o crear una caja al simplemente moldear una bola de papel, o incluso, buscar la forma de levantar cuatro hojas como paredes sin tener que plegarlas... jaja. Finalmente trabajé en esa última idea y así fue como nacieron los triedos. Son conectores que permiten levantar y organizar hojas en ángulos de 90° para construir cajas con facilidad. Después ya no me pareció una broma sino una excelentísima idea, sobre todo cuando se me ocurrió que podía usar fotos en vez de hojas como paredes. Hasta salé una caja interesante si usas vidrios como paredes y base, pero en ese caso sugiero plegar los triedos en cartulina y pegar los vidrios a los triedos, por ejemplo usando pegante de silicona.

En la foto que vez acá, los triedos fueron hechos en cartulina y las fotos están adheridas a cartones; esa es una opción para que el modelo quede bien trabado. Sin embargo, hay otra opción: doblar los bolsillos de los triedos, doblando con ellos las puntas de las fotos. Así traba bastante bien aunque "daña" las fotos. Enseño ese segundo método en los fotodiagramas; agradezcan a Roxanne Smith que me ayudó con su revisión.

Hice otra variación más de este modelo. Les prometo que también pronto se las mostraré.

Si la pliegas, sólo te pido que por favor me envíes fotos a gerardo(a)neorigami.com


This is the box I promised to show you. It was from this model that I created the Trihedron Cubic Box. As you can see, it uses the same modules: the trihedrons. When Juan proposed leidygra and I to create new boxes, I thought I wasn't going to be able to create a new box, cause I felt so satisfied with the ones I had already created. So I thought I could make a little joke, like when leidygra said her model was the most useful of all cause it was folded with a bank-note =P


I had thought about creating a box that wasn't really a box. For example, a "fuse box" or creating a box just by modeling a ball of paper, or even, finding a way to lift four pieces of paper like walls without having to fold them... haha. I finally worked on that last idea and that was how the trihedrons were born. They are connectors that let you lift and organize pieces of paper in 90° angles for building boxes with ease. After that, it started to seem like the most excellent idea and not so much like a joke, specially when I figured that I could use photos instead of pieces of paper for the walls. You can even make a very interesting box using glass for the walls and base, but in that case I suggest folding the trihedrons with cardstock and paste each glass to the trihedrons, for example using silicone glue.

In the photo you see here, the trihedrons were made in card stock and the photos have a cardboard backing.; that's one way of locking the model together. However, there's another way: folding the trihedrons' pockets, folding with them the tips of the photos. It locks very well like that but it "damages" the pictures. I teach that second method in the photo-diagrams; thank Roxanne Smith who helped me with their revision.

I made another variation of this model. I promise I will also show it to you soon.

If you fold it, I only ask you to please send me pictures to gerardo(a)neorigami.com

    Veamos un asunto de creación en papiroflexia de figuras:

    Esta idea de las esquinas en las que se pueden insertar cartulinas, etc...está publicada hace años en Origami Omnibus de Kasahara. Allí aparacen diagramas para hacer las esquinas de un cuadrado o de tres

    Hola Belén. Me alegra leerte por acá : )

    Espero que vuelvas a pasar por acá para leer mi pregunta. Siempre me interesa conocer trabajos similares. Podrías orientarme para encontrar en el libro esto que dices. Lo miré por encima y aunque vi cosas similares, no estoy muy seguro que haya encontrado esto exactamente.

    ¡Muchas gracias gracias Belén!

    Nice box - that isn't a box! I understand how the sides slide into the trihedron, but not sure how the photo/paper corners are integrated into the fold. Maybe, knowing how to actually fold the trihedron would help. If I understand correctly, the tirhedron is your design. Will you be sharing how to fold it? Otherwise, I have enjoyed the photos, that really show the corners well. Thanks.

    Thanks for your comment Kathy. What do you mean by that isn't a box? A penny for your thoughts : )

    In this case, it was enough by just sliding the photos with cardboard backing between the pockets of the cardstock trihedrons. If you want to see how to fold the trihedrons and the photos together, check out this variation called the Trihedron Photo Frame: http://neorigami.com/neo/index.php/en/useful-models/item/444-portarretrato-de-triedros-/-trihedron-photo-frame

    Look for the second picture in the gallery.

    I could make photodiagrams of all three trihedron models in the near future if you want. Let me know. For now I'm finishing the photo-diagrams for my Masu Stacking Lid.

    Hi Gerardo

    Thanks for the various trihedron module photos. The module looks to be real interesting and its use to make a cubic box quite intriguing. I'd welcome some photo diagrams when you have time.

    Many thanks

    Ok bbororigami and Kathy, I'll make photo-diagrams for my trihedron models. They will be ready in July. I'll probably have one ready each week. Would you share me photos of any of the three models folded with your hands in exchange?

    Cheers =D

    Gerardo, I can't tell you how much I appreciate being able to be the first to fold your models. It is a fantastic opertunity for me. Thank you. This last one was a lot of fun and I turned my practice model into a luminary. I put a LED tealight in it and I really liked the results. Thanks for sharing your models with all of us.

    Thank you Roxanne. Thanks to you I'm able to share my models with many. The luminary is an awesome idea! Everyone should check the URL she posted : )

    Tienen que entrar a la URL que Roxanne puso. ¡Convirtió esta caja en una lámpara!

    Dear Geradol, I love the box you made, tried to see how to fold it, but fail, due to I am new to this web. Can you send me the instruction to my email, or teach me how to look up the instruction?
    Thank you and love helen

  • Comment Link Gerardo Tuesday, 17 November 2015 02:59 posted by Gerardo

    Thank you Helen! I'm really flattered. OK, I'll explain to you how to open the photo-diagrams. Helen, around the middle of this page you'll find the link for opening them. When you press it you must type a username and password. They are both the same word and it's the same one for absolutely everyone and every PDF file in this site. You'll find that word exactly under the photo-diagrams link.

    Hope this helps you see the photo-diagrams. Let me know if it didn't.

    Helen, if you fold the box would you please send me some pictures to gerardo(a)neorigami.com ?
