Summary

These printable designs are foldable versions of your favorite regular 3D shapes, the five Platonic Solids! The shapes are flat (in the form of the polyhedron's net), but when printed in a flexible filament, they can be folded up into the finished shape.

How I Designed This

Video Tutorial

In the YouTube video I made on the subject, I have a section that is a tutorial on how to design your own. The same process can be applied to making any convex solid shape. I've also included the .123dx file so my existing designs can be downloaded.

How flexible of a filament are we talking about? ie, would something like Semi-Flex work (hardness of about 85?)?

I've tested it with SemiFlex and it worked nicely!
