Origami Tessellation: Atomic Pulses


 Some interesting things can be done using simple triangle twists as the main component.

In this case, I create an open back hex twist and then add some simple wings to it. I then use those wings in conjunction with the folds of the hexagon itself, to create a series of circular triangular twists that surround them. 

It's a densely packed design. It's a little tricky to get the triangle twists to cooperate. 

But overall, it's not terribly difficult to execute. 

I didn't draw a crease pattern prior to folding this. Just did a small test on a little square of paper. However, should I remember, I will try to make one some time soon. When I do, I will update this post to reflect that. 


The result on the reverse side is an interesting weave formation highlighted by 'halos' of the shapes from the font. 

It seems to me there are still a lot of designs yet to be discovered that are based upon the humble triangle twist.

Updated to add the crease pattern at the end of the post.
