In the description of my recent Hydrangea Tessellation fold, I mentioned that I had recently experimented with different variants of the “leaves” which form the edges of the tessellation. This model is one such example: it’s based on a diagonal grid with 48 divisions. Since each molecule of the Crossed Box Pleat (CBP) which is the back side of this design uses 6 grid units, 48 grid units add up to 7 molecules (the diagonal of a 4-molecule square) and there are 3 grid units left on each end of the diagonal. With this layout, I could fold slightly different “leaves” than the typical border made from a 2-unit margin on a non-rotated grid.
This model was folded as the base for a more complex tessellation which will be a collaboration with another folder.
