Delta-Star is a polyhedral object which I invented in 1996.|
The type of Delta-Star corresponds to Deltahedrons. It expands and shrinks. Especially highly symmetric tetrahedron,octahedron,icosahedron types and deltahedorn 6,10 can transform smoothly.
Furthermore tetrahedron,octahedron type and deltahedron 6,10 can be folded compactly by moving joint position.

|How to make Tetrahedron type(Tetra-Star)|
|How to fold|
|You can fold like right figure when joint B is at center.|
|If you move three joint B,
It can be folded linearly(upper figure),
or fold to planar form(lower figure).
