Iso-Area Ninja Stars (Aaron P)

I discovered this ninja star molecule many years and have always thought it was cool. Each ninja star is just a square twist on top of a square twist, but that isn't the method I used to collapse this. Other people have discovered this molecule before:

I've come up with a few other ways to tessellate these that I haven't put on my photo stream, but this is definitely the most interesting way. You can change the M/V fold assignments to make it not iso-are if you'd like, but I prefer it this way. I really like the density of the stars, I can get over 32 (counting stars on both sides) off just a 32 grid.

I must say, this tess probably had the most annoying precreasing I've ever done.
