2-1: Octahedra

Nanodots video technique series by Szaki

In this video, you will learn how to build a basic octahedron shape with eight sides.

You can construct octahedrons by making hexagon layers with different side lengths and stacking them in a staggered connection. The middle layer is the most stable, therefore it is best to start with it first.

When all layers are stacked, simply add the corner dots to finish the shape.

2-2: Cubes

In this video, you will learn the most basic method for building cubes.

By folding lines in a parallel connection, you will create single layer strips of Nanodots. After that, simply fold the strip into a cube of any size.

2-3: Spheres

Nanodots video technique series by Szaki

In this video, Szaki shows how to build basic spheres with 20 triangles or 12 pentagons.

From here, there are many possible ways of constructing spheres. Depending on the types and sizes of surfaces you wish to use, you may incorporate creative structural elements into your sphere.
