Explaining the petal fold

Post by ahudson » Sat Dec 03, 2011 12:49 am

I'm closing up the final details on my first book (yay!) and while I was working on it, I ended up completely resequencing two of the models to avoid using petal folds-- simply because I couldn't figure out a good way to teach them. The conventional precrease-open-collapse method works great on a bird base, but in other situations the generalization is not so clear. For example, on a cupboard fold, or a waterbomb base.

Any thoughts?

Could you give a reference url of petal-folding a cupboard fold? I'm struggling to visualise it.

Not a very good example, sorry. Think of the petal fold as used in Verdi's Vase.
