Given that I plan to make a video on a 3-stage clover folding next, I decided I needed to understand the model better. And what better way than to fold a 7-stage clover folding to grasp what it's all about? And this is the result.
Paper size: 19.5cm transparent paper (approx. 7.5in)
Model size: 8.5cm x 8.5cm x 1cm (approx. 3.3in x 3.3in x 0.4in)
The formula for determining which grid to start with depending on how many stages you want to fold is as follows: 6 * (no of stages) - 2
So for a 7-stage tessellation you need a 40-division grid.
Ravi Apte previously compiled this table:
|Stages||Required grid divisions|
