Ridges Corrugation (32×32 grid)

Ridges Corrugation (32×32 grid)

A larger fold of my Ridges Corrugation, folded from a 32×32 grid. Folded from the big grid, the model curls up more than the 16×16 version and can be used as...

Monument Valley Corrugation

Monument Valley Corrugation

This is my Monument Valley Corrugation, squeezed inside Predictable Box which I designed for this very purpose. The back side of the corrugation is less inte...

Ridges Corrugation

Ridges Corrugation

A new origami corrugation of mine. The model tends to curve slightly but in this case it actually makes it more interesting rather than being an issue. You c...

Viper Corrugation

Viper Corrugation

This corrugation is just a single row of molecules from Nest of Vipers Corrugation. This picture shows the opposite side of the corrugation than the former.

Nest of Vipers Corrugation

Nest of Vipers Corrugation

My new origami corrugation. Since it causes the sheet to curl, I’m thinking about using it for a lampshade or similar object. Different curling patterns can ...

Corrugation: Shark Teeth

Corrugation: Shark Teeth

My new iso-area origami corrugation which I called Shark Teeth due to the sharp triangular molecules of which it is composed. Like many other corrugations, t...

Golden Jubilee Corrugation

Golden Jubilee Corrugation

After I designed this corrugation, I learned that Ron Resch had already designed it in the 1960-s, over 50 years ago. That’s a Golden Jubilee for this model....

Heptagonal Star Box (Chevron Corrugation)

Heptagonal Star Box (Chevron Corrugation)

This seven-sided star shape can be used as one half of a two-piece box or alone as an ornament. This heptagonal star design is based around my Chevron Corrug...

Chevron Corrugation (UD-DU)

Chevron Corrugation (UD-DU)

This is a new variant of my Chevron Corrugation. The variant shown here was designed by myself, and, as I later learned, also by others, though with differen...

The Cliff

The Cliff

Origami corrugation, based on an asymmetric zig-zag pattern.

Hexagonal Diamond Corrugation

Hexagonal Diamond Corrugation

I derived this corrugation from Iso-Area Diamond Corrugation by adding some extra space between the diagonal creases. This changes the appearance of the corr...

Iso-Area Diamond Corrugation

Iso-Area Diamond Corrugation

The original Diamond Corrugation was invented independently by Ilan Garibi and Andrea Russo (who used the name Triangùli in speculo).

Tympanum Corrugation (iso-area)

Tympanum Corrugation (iso-area)

Iso-area variant of my Tympanum Corrugation. Since both sides are the same, there is no net tension, and the model stays flat without trying to curl up.

Tympanum Corrugation

Tympanum Corrugation

A new origami design of mine, called Tympanum Corrugation because it resembles the tympanum of a Greek temple. The idea came to me after I designed this dog ...

Chevron Corrugation (iso-area)

Chevron Corrugation (iso-area)

This is a variant of my Chevron Corrugation in which every other row of chevrons is reversed, i.e. pointing down instead of up. This makes the corrugation is...

Chevron Corrugation

Chevron Corrugation

Corrugation, designed and folded by me, but later I learned that Daniel Kwan folded this pattern before, inspired by a similar model by Charles Hoberman (det...

Double-Blintzed Bird Base Corrugation

Double-Blintzed Bird Base Corrugation

After tessellating the blintzed bird base, a natural next step for me was to double-blintz it. Bird base blintzed two times can be tessellated, and it result...

Blintzed Bird Base Corrugation

Blintzed Bird Base Corrugation

This corrugation is exactly what it says on the tin: blintzed bird bases tiled side by side. Large tilings have a slight tendency towards curling, but it can...

Radial Zig-Zag Tessellation

Radial Zig-Zag Tessellation

This is a rather obvious variant of the classic Zig Zag Corrugation, so it’s certainly been done by others before. This model was mostly free-folded with onl...

Hugging Triangles Corrugation

Hugging Triangles Corrugation

At first sight you might see only octagons and squares in this corrugation. But, in my opinion, the interesting part is the small triangles placed pairwise i...

Ruff Corrugation

Ruff Corrugation

A very simple design, so it’s probably been invented before. Inspired by Pineapple Tessellation and its variants. Paper aspect ratio of approximately 5:1.
