Neodymium Magnets – Rare Earth Magnets
|Pull all 216 of your Buckyballs into a straight line.|
|Count 36 ball in and fold so that each ball lines up perfectly with it’s neighbor.|
|Now turn the chain the other way and zip it down again. Do it 3 more times, and the shape you’re left with is a sheet of Buckyballs 6 x 36.|
|Count six balls in and fold the sheet, lining up the balls just like you did when it was a chain you were folding.|
|Now fold the other way. Three more folds and you’ll have made the cube. There’s not a trick to it really, but be careful; one wrong move and you could be starting over. Buckyballs are like that.|
