I found out that Shuzo Fujimoto’s molecule used in his CFW 91 star, can be changed into a fractal. By pulling some paper outside in the center, you can get a small hexagon from which a smaller copy of the original star can be folded, and the process can continue for as many times as the paper and folding precision allow. Just like the plain star (which can be considered a level-1 fractal), versions with more levels can be tessellated.

I’m not sure if Fujimoto was aware of this possibility: on one hand, I haven’t found it published in any of his books, but on the other, he did publish the design I call Lucky Star Fractal which is based on a similar idea, and if I noticed the possibility of fractalizing CFW 91, so may have Fujimoto himself.
