Welcome to the DofTNet Diagrams page. This is the place to be if you're looking to fold something right now. DofT presents to you for your personal enjoyment the following instructions:
- A modified version of Kawasaki's Rose along with a calyx and stem of my own design.
- Origamic Chemistry - Modular Molecule Models. This section, which I am updating right now, outlines how to use origami in your next project for chemistry class or just to have an all-around super cool (or super geeky) origami item. Please excuse the mess while I remodel.
This is what you're all really here for. Dan of Toasters' modified Kawasaki's Rose: The most popular area of this site. This is similar to the one found in Origami for the Connoisseur. Originally designed by Toshikazu Kawasaki, I have made some changes to account for my own sense of aesthetics as well as allow for the attachment of the calyx.
Calyx - Rose Base
This is a base design that DofT came up with for use with the modified version of one of Kawasaki's roses that he show here. This base design was inspired by one of Toshikazu Kawasaki's other designs - the spiral snail shell - which can also be found in Origami for the Connoisseur.
Having a nice rose and base to match is all very well, but you know.. it's much easier to display it in a vase or something when there's also a stem attached. Well this is the stem that DofT came up with.
Eventually, this will have the set of instructions for making models of various molecules including the caffeine molecule shown here.
