Dodecagon tessellation

Folded by Joel, based on a design by Chris Palmer.

a really interesting work- getting those pleat widths right on the second set of pleats (splitting the 60 degree intersections into 30 degree intersections) would be a real chore, for sure.

I have personally found from my attempts to fold octagonal (and higher) level polygons that you start to get what I would term as diminishing returns- they become much harder to fold, without necessarily adding too much more to the piece.

of course, this 12 sided design is really spectacular, so I’m rethinking my opinion on that a bit.

Anyhow, another wonderful work from Joel- great to see these! Some amazing tessellation skills.
