3.4.6.4 Waterbomb / Flagstone Tessellation

The finished, folded design. A little rough around the edges but I think it demonstrates the basic premise.

 

Here's a rough illustration of the crease pattern of this design. And here is the partially folded waterbomb tessellation base as well.

 

I picked this design somewhat at random just to see how my waterbomb->flagstone process would work, and it came out pretty decently. This same technique can be applied to pretty much any 2D tessellation that can be folded with normal pleating methods.
