A 2016 resolution was to self-learn paper engineering and building Pop-ups. The result is this little paper design of one of Wellington landmarks, the famous Bucket Fountain sculpture.
Making the Pop-up
The whole construction is based on a v-fold in the centre of the main gully. A cube is raising the Fountain which has the red sphere on top. The sphere is built from a series of trellises. I used the free Autodesk app 123D make for this and reversed the directions of the slits so the slices wont fall down.
The bench is the only piece that is not connected to the v-fold. It stands by the automatic pull-tab mechanism that is generated from the main gully. If these terminologies are a bit confusing, check out the awesome guide Duncan Birmingham’s Guide to Pop-Up.
