Still in Alpha

O3 Rose, 0.4

Where Are The Phreakin’ Diagrams?

None, yet – and when there are, they’ll be debuting on a different stage. (We’ll link to it.)

Till then, an unimproved CP for the impatient: O3 Rose, 0.4

Or: O3 Rose Crease Pattern, Somewhat Improved.

    Working on that, by the way, hope it will not be too long.

    This is a beautiful model! It looks deceptively simple. I can’t fold the Kawasaki Rose, so I’m not sure that this one will work either, but I’ll give it a go!

    Origami Rose by Oschene

    Philip Chapman-Bell, also known on the origami circuit as Oschene, just posted a crease pattern for this absolutely wonderful origami Rose, folded from a circle of paper. It has pentagonal symmetry! Marvelous!
    Visit his website and download the CP.

    This year there are very nice roses folded by diifferent people, Robert lang.Chit, and now you all have diffeent approches and all are nice well done. please post the diagrams at the erliest . people like me cannot fold it only from C.P.

    Hey, J.V.,

    Diagramming this model is high priority. But first, I must work the bugs out. Stay tuned for updates.

    Nice. I found this site when researching an experiment into an ‘octagonal’ rose.

    I have a question though. The basis of these types of roses is a twist fold, and my original theory was that this twist can only be performed if the opposite sides of the polygon are parallel (square, octagon…), but you have done it with a pentagon.

    So my question is this: can you perform a twist fold with any regular polygon? Or what might the criteria be do you think?

    Indeed, you can perform a twist fold with any regular polygon–they do have to be regular, though, I think.

    It’s also possible to do a twist fold with an open center, although that isn’t very useful for roses. For example, you might do a square twist fold where you make the valley fold of each ridge be 1 unit from the paper’s center line, and the mountain fold of the ridge only 1.5 units (instead of the usual 2 units) from the center line. When you flatten it, the result will be like this, with the inside of the twist folded section showing through:

    | |
    | |
    | |

    It’s also possible to do the opposite–for example, folding a twist fold where the valley fold of the ridge is only 1 unit from the center and the mountain fold is 3 units from the center instead of the usual 2 units. This twist fold will not be able to close all the way flat, because the ridges are too thick (unless you put in some extra creases afterwards to make them thinner), but it might be very useful for a rose. I think this might be what is used for the O3 rose, but I can’t tell because the curved folds are unlike twist folds that I have seen before.

    PS. Sorry that the “diagram” in my above post didn’t come out right. The comment formatting deleted some important spaces.
