Our origami Precision generator uses the folds for the traditional fujimoto origami cube, you may already be familiar with the folding process, however if not don’t worry as we have made some step by step instructions on how to fold the generator. We have used the basic instructions from Origami Instructions.com whose motto is spreading joy one fold at a time. We hope you enjoy building our origami generators.
Start by laying your sheet generator side down, making sure that the “this way up arrow” is pointing away from you.
Step 1: Fold the paper horizontally and vertically so that your paper is divided into 16 squares the same as the guides printed on the paper.
Step 1 - Instruction and Result
Step 2: Now, with your paper divided, pay attention to the colours of the lines printed on the paper, ignoring the diagonals, as we will come to those later. Note that the images have black lines but our genertor cubes use colour coded lines.
For the green lines, the paper should be mountain folded, creased upwards like the ridge of a mountain. Then for the blue lines the paper should be valley folded, creased downwards like a valley. Ensure the creases are nice and crisp.
Step 2 - Instruction and Result
Step 3: Next make valley folds along the blue diagonal lines, again making sure the creases are crisp.
