Fractals


Models of this type are also automatically listed in: abstract, geometric, mathematical object
More restrictive types: modular fractal, recursive non-tileable model, recursive and periodic tessellations, recursive tessellation

Fractals are a class of mathematical objects which are characterized by self-similarity: a part of the object resembles the whole. Such structures can be approximated in origami using iterative folding or using modular origami techniques.

This page lists folding instructions for models of a single type. You might be interested in the models themselves instead.
