This star by Fujimoto is basically the same thing as CFW 87 but folded from a 6×6×6 grid, which results in more paper around the central molecule and a different look. The molecule in the center, resembling the biohazard symbol, can be tessellated (I don’t know if Fujimoto was aware of this). It is also possible to create a fractal version. Both operations are possible for other molecules found in Fujimoto’s stars as well, and I plan to publish some examples of such modifications I have folded while studying Fujimoto’s designs in recent months.
