Solving Turnstiles Origami Tessellation


 This is a tessellation by gatheringfolds that I solved. I can't remember what she named it. I went looking for it again on her instagram and I couldn't find it the second time around. I really tried. Several times. 

So I just went ahead and gave it a name for the sake of titling the post. 

It's a pretty interesting configuration. Hex twists at the center. Double triangle twists. Then a nice triad of around a pyramid. 

Solving other people's tessellations is always a fun puzzle. 

Once I've solved how to fold, executing it is also a pleasing exercise. 

It's also a great way to find inspiration for your own ideas. Even if they take elements from other designs, you can still find unique variations. 


My crease pattern that I worked out for this tessellation is at the end of this post. 

There are some remnants of other tesses in the crease pattern photo. But I think it's still pretty easy to understand.
