Origami tessellation: Sad Octagons

This model uses a technique I came up with recently, which makes it possible to double the number of sides of any regular polygon when it is used as the central polygon of a specific kind of twist. Here it is used to make octagons out of squares but it also works with hexagons and other polygons. By leaving some of the sides unchanged, other shapes visible in this model can be created.
