An origami spheroid is here defined as the symmetric assemblage of multiple copies of paper building blocks without holes. Four examples with the octahedral and dodecahedral wireframes of Platonic solids, Johnson solid #17 wireframe, and the pentagonal antiprism wireframe symmetry are presented. These consist of multiple pieces of Triblock paper building blocks, with folding and adhesives. In this study, we will describe the folding and assembly processes of spheroids in details.
