Recursive and Periodic Tessellations


Models of this type are also automatically listed in: abstract tessellation, abstract, fractal, geometric, mathematical object, pattern, abstract periodic tessellation, periodic tessellation, recursive tessellation, tessellation

Tessellations which are at the same time recursive (each molecule contains smaller copies of itself) and periodic (those molecules can be tiled on a plane side by side).

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