Origami Magic Ball (Kade Chan) – Part 3

Origami Magic Ball (Kade Chan) – Part 3

Hello! Today we will be folding an Origami Magic Ball designed by Kade Chan. This is one of the most well-known
origami models on YouTube, and in this video I will teach you how to fold this
model with great detail. Many people believe that collapsing the
water bomb bases is the hardest part of creating the Magic Ball. So to make this part somewhat easier, I will be demonstrating how to do this on a much larger scale. Okay, so let’s pretend that this is a top
edge of our model. That would mean that this is the top left corner of our model
and this is the top-most horizontal crease. So what I want you to do is hold the
model straight up and down. Once you have it like this, along the top
most horizontal crease, we’re going to fold it down so that the
model is at a 90 degree angle. And for now we’re just going to look at the top. Now we’re going to look at the vertical
creases running up and down the model. So we’re going to focus on this left-most
vertical crease, and we’re just going to skip the rectangle to the left of it, and
we’re going to go two segments to the right. And you’ll notice that makes a
square. And I’ve outlined it here, and that is where we’re going to collapse our
first waterbomb base. So to collapse our waterbomb base we
just want to make sure that these are all mountain folds surrounding the waterbomb base, and the 2 extending downwards past the water bomb base should also be
mountain folds as well. So once you’ve done that then you can
hold the model back up like we had it before, and you can start to collapse
your waterbomb base along those X creases that we made before. So as you do that, you sort of just have to
bring the model together. And it would help by pushing this edge here out towards this edge here. So as you
just pinch them together, then you can just pull it all nicely together. And
these two flaps on the side, you can just flatten them out. And this one here,
you’ll notice that there’s a diagonal crease. You can just fold that up too. So now
we’ve done that, and we just want to move on to our next one. So make sure that the mountain folds are
in the right places, so around the edge of the square and
extending past it. And again we just want to sort of pinch the edges towards one
another, and it will sort of just collapse itself. It actually is pretty simple. So now
we’re going to the next one. We’re doing the same thing. Just pinch them towards one another once we know that the mountain folds are in the right spots. And then we just have
these extra flaps at the end. Just push down and flatten on both sides,
and we should have something like this. Now your model will definitely extend
longer than this. I just cut my model short so that I could demonstrate this in
a closer view to you. So now what we’re going to do is look at
it from the side, and we can sort of unfold these pleats (the mountain and valley folds) that we just created by collapsing the water bomb bases on the top row. So you’re going to notice that you can
see where the other waterbomb bases will collapse too. And you can look at how
I’ve outlined them here as well. And what you’re going to do now is, we’re going to
start our first waterbomb base along with the edge. So we’re not going to go over another
rectangle. We’re not going to start at one
rectangle off the side. We’re actually going to start it on the edge this time. So now what we have to do is we’re just going to collapse the same way we did before. But now if you’ll notice, these mountain
folds are going to reverse and turn into valley folds, and the valley folds are
going to turn into mountain folds, and so on. So every time you do a new row of waterbomb bases, that will happen. So let’s start with this first waterbomb base. And the more you unfold it, the easier it
will be to collapse. So just make sure that each side of the water bomb base is
a mountain fold. It might be a bit strange to make that mountain fold, but
you can just do that as you collapse it as well. So now what you’re going to do
is just push in the edge and push in this part towards one another, and it
almost just collapse itself. And you’ll notice that this first row will become
flat with it, and it won’t be at a 90 degree angle anymore. So now we’re going to continue to our next one, and you can see where I’ve outlined it here. We’re just going to do the same thing. So we’re going to collapse a
waterbomb base there as well. So make sure that they are mountain folds, and you can do that while you collapse. But we’re going to collapse along the X,
so to help you, I would push in along that middle mountain fold here. So you
can just push in and it almost pops and it’s pretty much set up for you already. And you can just pull the edges in
towards one another, and it’ll collapse. And then you go to the next one and do
the same thing, so just pop it. Bring both edges towards one another, and then make sure that the sides are mountain fold once again. And then there is one more, so we’re just doing the same thing. Just pop it in the middle and then
you can just collapse. And from the side, it will look something like this. Now you’re going to repeat the same
technique until you reach the bottom of the model. I will show you what your
model should look like as you create each new row of water bomb bases. This is what the model will look like
after you’ve completed one row of waterbomb bases. Please make sure that you have created
your first waterbomb base offset one rectangle from the edge of
the paper. This is what the model should look like
after you’ve completed two rows of water bomb bases. There should be two triangles on both
sides from the waterbomb bases that we’ve collapsed. And you should see a
long row of pleats, like this, that we haven’t collapsed water bomb bases out
of yet. And also note that on this second row of
water bomb bases, we started our first water bomb on the side of the edge of
the paper. We didn’t skip over an extra rectangle
to do this. We started it right on the edge. Now on the next row, we’re going to
offset it one more. We’re going to offset that one rectangle
from the edge, so it’s like the first one that we did. So you’re just going to alternate
between, back and forth, all the way until you get to the bottom of the model. This is what the model will look like
after you’ve completed three rows of waterbombs. There should be three triangles on both
sides, so you should see three triangles that have been created using your waterbomb bases. This is what it should look like
underneath, and you should still have that strip of pleats that we will soon
turn into water bomb bases. And now for that last row, we should have started off
one rectangle from the side. And on this next row, we’re going to start it
directly on the edge. This is what the model should look like
after you’ve completed four water bomb bases. Again there should be four
triangles on either side, so however many rows of waterbomb bases you’ve
completed, that’s how many triangles you should see
on the side. And again, there’s this long strip. You should still have a long strip. It’s
definitely getting shorter each time, and that last time we should have
started right on the edge. That first waterbomb base should have been right
on the edge there. So this one is going to be offset one
more, so we’re just going to keep alternating until we get to the end. This is what the model will look like
after you’ve completed five rows of waterbomb bases. There should again be five triangles on either side, and this strip here continues to get shorter. So this next row we’re going to start
the water bomb base right on the edge because that last row we started one off
from the side. So continue to do this until we get to
the end. This is what the model should look like
after you’ve completed six rows of waterbombs. And now for this next row, we’re
going to start offset one rectangle from the edge, so right over here, because the
last one we did was directly on the edge. So now there’s only two more rows of
waterbombs left to do before the collapsing of this model is complete. This is what the model should look like
after you’ve completed seven rows of waterbomb bases. Now there’s only one
more row left, and on this last row we’re going to start directly on the edge for
the first water bomb base. This is what the model should look like after you’ve
collapsed all of the waterbomb bases. It should look like this on the top and this on the bottom.

  1. please explain the part between part 2 and three, I can't follow. If I have 32 colomns and 8 rows, how can it be square? I don't have squares but rectangles

  2. In part 1 it explained your paper needed to have a ratio of 1:2 meaning the long side should be exactly twice as long as the short side. You can't use a whole sheet of regular printer paper. Printer paper measures 8 1/2 in x 11 in. You would need to cut a long edge off so the paper is 5 1/2 in x 11 in.

  3. Oh, not only did I throw away my paper, I teared it up, shoved it in my mouth,
    chewed it, drank some coke with it in my mouth, shoved it up my arse and threw it in the fire.

  4. It took me more than 2 hours until I came to this part and found that there was a problem with the size of the paper…
    Aaannnnnddd… It is all ruined.. I wasted time..I lost eyesight.. I am going crazy now… AND THAT'S ALL BECAUSE OF THE PERSON WHO INVENTED THIS THING!!
    I HATE HIM!!!


  6. I have no idea what I'm doing!! I watched this video at least 10 times! The model really messed me up BIG TIME!! 

  7. Next time to get people less confused use ur paper u have been folding NOT an example!! Thanks and this tutorial btw is really cool

  8. omg i hate it i wasted
    many paper and watch this video 10 times and 5 freaking hours i started 8:00 am and now its 1:19

  9. Okey. I did the first row. After a lot of struggle. After i couldn't do the second row i realised. I fucked up a lot of time for nothing. -_- thanks m8 you should have started the first part with a lot more and serious warnings…

  10. i dont care what others say, this is one of the clearest and most detailed videos about magic ball on youtube
    its just a bunch of mad kids who like to go ham on peoples' videos and post these comments

  11. Dear EzOrigami,

    I have noticed that this video has alot of hate commets….
    Well, don't listen to those idiots, you are the most talented
    easy origamist of the magic ball I have ever seen, Other
    Videos are bad and hard to do, you are the one, the top, and
    you have earned a sub, those idiots think you did bad? Well,
    dont give up on origami and don't give up on youtube, you
    are the amazing, top 1, origamist.

    P.s please don't judge meh user XD

  12. this vid makes it so that you could do this blind. I have no idea how you do not understand him. he has one of the best tutorials on YouTube

  13. Love this video !!!
    I also make videos about origami cake, airplane, ship and dinousaur.
    Please check out my channel :

  14. hey help me out ! i was not able to understand the part which you have done after the half video … all steps before i have done but thisnstep after half of the video i was not able to understand

  15. Nice try, But I can't see the step from the bigger example to the four-line one. May be it depends one the explication, that I don't understand word for word. The film doesn't show how to fold the first line. Its out of the camera und rush ! – about fifth minute thirty.
    It's a jump I can't follow . ….
    I'll just find out it, anyway.

  16. I want to say 'Thank You' to Kade for taking the time to make these 4 videos on the Origami Ball. Having said that, OMG! I have been trying to do fold this ball for over a month without any luck. After I spend an hour + folding, the paper usually tears at the point of making the first row of water bombs. I mean, geez, a kid can do this and I don't even come close to completing the ball! I am to the point where I could scream, so I give up. Anyway, once again Thank you to Kade for a great and thorough tutorial. Guess, this leftie just can't do it and knows when to call it quits.

  17. To all those who left negative comments, I understand the frustration, as I have not been able to make one, either. However, this is a kid who genuinely wanted to show the steps to make this cool origami ball, which is an advanced folding project. So, if you are a 'newbie' this would seem almost impossible – Not because of his instructions- but because this is a hard project for a beginner. And, the profanity I read in a few comments… really? Why? He is a kid! It isn't his fault you took on a project you may not be ready to try yet. It doesn't mean give up if you really want to make an origami ball, it just means start with the less advanced folds, like a swan. As for Kade or Yuri (as a i read in a few comments) you did a great job with these tutorials, best ones I have seen on YouTube. And, that is a fact.
