Helicopters Origami Tessellation
I've seen photos of his with variations on this idea. I just decided to repeat it in a very straightforward way.
This design may have been done before. It's doubtful that it hasn't already been done by numerous people.
There's a small hex twist on the back. Then a ring of triangle twists around it on the front. They're a pleat out from the center.
This makes it a little easier to fold initially. But when adding repetitions, it's still kinda tricky to get everything into its proper place.
It was kinda tricky to fold. It wasn't easy by any stretch of the imagination.
I had imagined it would backlight differently than it actually does. It looks a lot different backlit than it does flat.
I did sketch out a crease pattern, but I left it at work. I'll add it later.
It's a pretty simple pattern to understand, even if it is a little tricky to execute.
