Two 3D tessellations: a brick wall and an octahedral-tetrahedral truss network.
An essay about origami designer Seth Friedman's experiences involving reading and folding from Crease Patterns.
Curved-crease origami can be designed by considering the properties of ruling lines, lines on the crease pattern that remain straight in the 3D folded form. This technique was developed by David Huffman, who identified conic section curves has being particularly suitable for curved-crease designs. Two examples using ellipses are given as crease patterns.
Several variations on a hexagon-based, iso-area, geometric collapse method are shown. Some of these were taught at the 2013 OrigamiUSA Annual Convention in New York City.
A crease pattern for a box-pleated dragonfly.
This article aimed at novice folders examines the design and folding process for geometric bowl and vase models characterized by a series of curved pleats.
This month's crease pattern folds a symmetric subject on an inherently unsymmetric base.
A hex-pleated design for a long-legged katydid with some discussion of the design principles.
A rotationally symmetric solid curved fold, folded from a regular hexagon.
Part two in a series examining the mathematics behind the golden ratio in some geometric boxes.
The Zipper Tessellation is a good starting point for many variations, such as the Zipper Ring and Vase, presented here with crease patterns and some diagrams.
Tubis and Sprung show that the same starting shapes used previously to create generalized masu boxes [Tubis and Pooley 2012] can be used to produce \(n\)-pointed 3D stars.
Tubis and Pooley explore \(n\)-sided generalizations of the masu and one of its many decorative-lids. Detailed video instructions are provided at the Origami Player site.

This wave model is fun to fold and has a lot of math in it!
A pleated cone sliced by multiple planes creates this geometric model reminiscent of a breaking wave.
This paper presents a crease pattern for one-cut double happiness.
Crease patterns and video for two modular tree units with variations.
A rotationally symmetric geometric shape, folded from a hexagon, based on Jeannine Mosely's "Bud".
Diagrams for a rose by Cheng Chit Leong, demonstrating the use of curved couplets in his designs.
This article describes techniques for finding reference points for models with square root of two ratios which are commonly found in 22.5 degree designs.
Diagrams for Robert Neale's classic dragon!
The addition of curvature introduces some situations which conventional crease patterns are not good at dealing with. I present some ideas for incorporating surface curvature into crease patterns, and discuss why I chose these schematics.
Crease pattern and design notes for a complex asymmetric waterdragon.
With many tessellations, the obvious way to design the crease pattern doesn't necessarily result in a foldable pattern. By adding extra creases to the pattern, you can sometimes find an alternate way to the finished form, as you'll see in this geometric pattern.
Crease pattern for Toshikazu Kawasaki's Dragon inspired by a statue in Barcelona. OrigamiUSA members have contributed diagrams and a video tutorial for this model as well.
Finishing up the discussion about crease patterns, focusing on audience considerations and the use of crease patterns as a sequenced element.
Explore hex pleating further with this long- and variable-length-legged spider design.
The first in a series, analyzing crease patterns. In this article, we take a big picture look at a Werewolf designed by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/53465278@N02/" target="blank">Jacob Rossman</a>.
Making a crease pattern takes less time than drawing a full diagram, but because of the technical difficulty, most folders don't like working with them. Here's some ideas about how to make things easier without spending dozens of hours on a full diagram.
This crease pattern introduces a new form of uniaxial base design, called <i>hex pleating</i> and describes how to use technique technique.
