...K. A. Seffen We present a novel, rigidly folding vertex inspired by the shape of the simplest hanging drape. Fold lines in the vertex correspond to pleats and ridges in the drape and are symmetrically arranged to enable synchronized flat folding of facet pairs. We calculate the folded rotation...
