This is designed for PVC laminated-object-modeling 3D printers, but it may work in flexible materials on other machines (possibly nylon).

The SD300, SD300 Pro, and Invision LD printers build a \"test part\" that folds up and snaps together into a nice little pyramid. I designed foldable_oct.stl to enable five standard test parts to be stacked to build a larger pyramid. The puzzle is to figure out how to utilize the new piece to make it possible.

NOTE: foldable_tetra.stl is equivalent to the SD300\'s standard test part, but it has a round hole that makes it easier to assemble and disassemble the parts. You don\'t need it if you\'ve got enough test parts lying around, but it\'s nice to have if you want to un-snap the pieces.


  1. Build one foldable_oct.stl part. It has a triangular hole to distinguish it from the other parts.
  2. Collect 5 unfolded SD300 or Invision LD \"test parts\" or build equivalent foldable_tetra.stl parts.
  3. You should have six pieces in total.
  4. Fold and snap the pieces to build a collection of solid shapes that can be stacked to form a larger pyramid like the one pictured.

Hint: You'll notice foldable_oct.stl looks a lot like the standard test part, except it won't easily fold into a pyramid like the other parts. It doesn't have to. Find another way to use it.

I'm not sure whether this is worth adapting to rigid-material printing, but for what it's worth the STLs are computed so the thin, flexible layer is below Z=0. All slices above Z=0 can be built in rigid material, so it could feasibly be built directly onto a flexible sheet.
