Img 20180130 030032 by yuumeiI finished designing the 3D paper koi puzzle, fully posable and assembled without any glue or tape. My SO programmed some rainbow led strips to test out the koi lantern and I love it <3 There's still some minor design adjustments to make but I'm pretty much done, wha
t a fun weekend project :D

Lots of people asked about buying one of these to make themselves in my last work in progress post. I'll look into producing these are DIY 3D puzzles. Assembly is definitely harder than Ikea furniture though lol so probably not for little kids to make, but if you're into papercraft and puzzles, this will be lots of fun t
o build! And even more fun to light up.

See a video of the rainbow light changing on my instagram www.instagram.com/p/BeljUHSnJP…

Looks very nice. I'm loving that you thought to use animated colors for the lantern and that the scales have multiple apparent values.

Good job.

These are so beautiful! I'm just so worried because it's paper and lights. I mean, isn't there a risk that the paper will heat up and burn eventually?
