14 Mentai: 6 Squares & 8
This marking begins with an
8 Combination Division and results in 14 faces: 6 squares with 8 point
centers, and 8 hexagons as 12-point centers centers. This marking is
similar to how Tamentai from a C10 are done, in that the sides of the
large triangles from the C8 division are divided into 3 segments, much
like the 6-part triangle tamentai are approached.
Begin by marking an 8
using regular marking thread.
|After completing the 8 Combination division, divide the long
leg of the 4 point diamond in half (yellow pin in photo to
left). Beginning at the 6-point center as shown, lay down extra
marking lines to follow the path of 6-point center, bisecting
each of the segments A-B, 6-point center, etc. Repeat from the
same origination point on the opposite side of the 8 point
|Rotate the ball to the next open 6 point intersection and
repeat with 2 more threads in the same manner.
