The original Diamond Corrugation was invented independently by Ilan Garibi and Andrea Russo (who used the name Triangùli in speculo).
I thought I’d make an iso-area version since I haven’t seen anyone publish such a modification yet despite its obviousness. I guess someone must have come up with this idea before, but I just couldn’t find any pictures. According to Ekaterina Lukasheva, there was a curvilinear version designed by David Huffman.
Just like many other iso-area designs, this one also has the nice property of not rolling up: since both sides are same (iso-area), there is no tension difference between the two.
