It’s been more than 20 years since Joseph Wu designed his one-fold stegosaurus. Now, with the recent advancements in minimalistic origami and computer-aided origami design, I give you the next step: the no-fold stegosaurus which can be (not)folded in exactly zero steps.
While the simplistic design doesn’t allow for much detail, you can clearly see two back plates, the massive tail and the head of this grazing beast. What started with Paul Jackson’s single-crease origami, now finds its fulfillment with my no-crease origami.
I have also designed a number of other models using this technique (from squares and rectangles), including topics as diverse as: a tablet computer, a snake, and a detailed map of the U.S. state of Colorado. I hope to publish CPs for these models if time allows.
