This tessellation by gatheringfolds had me stumped. She alluded to a fold she known as a closed hexagon twist. This was not one thing with which I used to be acquainted. This was not one thing I would ever found or encountered. It was completely new to me.
I have been doing origami tessellations for the higher a part of 5 years and I assumed that I knew all of the folds and all of the methods. I didn’t.
Watching the start of her video tutorial confirmed me the weird fold which she had used on this specific tessellation. If I had not watched it, I am unsure whether or not or not I might’ve ever found out the idea.
So, my take away is that there is all the time extra to study.
As soon as I understood this new form/fold, I used to be all good to complete the method of replicating the design.
It additionally occurred to me that it really works similarly to what I name offset hex twists. The place in an alternating sample, three of the shapes that emanate from it may well exist on the entrance and the opposite three will be on the again. Some examples can be: Crowding Helicopters Tessellation, Minty Flowers Tess and Checkerboard Origami Tessellation. Realizing that is the way it works is a giant clue to fixing it.
I took a photograph of the mannequin in its 3D state the place it options the rosebuds. That is the primary picture.
I additionally to a photograph of the identical design utterly flattened. It isn’t as spectacular, however is technically the identical.
I shouldn’t have a crease sample for this. I didn’t create one since technically I didn’t absolutely resolve it. As soon as I noticed how she folded the rosebuds, I simply added the mandatory triangles and repeated.
You may study to fold it in her instagram tutorial if my clues are inadequate.
