# Characterization of Curved Creases and Rulings: Design and Analysis of Lens Tessellations

@article{Demaine2015CharacterizationOC, title={Characterization of Curved Creases and Rulings: Design and Analysis of Lens Tessellations}, author={Erik D. Demaine and Martin L. Demaine and David A. Huffman and Duks Koschitz and Tomohiro Tachi}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2015}, volume={abs/1502.03191} }

We describe a general family of curved-crease folding tessellations consisting of a repeating "lens" motif formed by two convex curved arcs. The third author invented the first such design in 1992, when he made both a sketch of the crease pattern and a vinyl model (pictured below). Curve fitting suggests that this initial design used circular arcs. We show that in fact the curve can be chosen to be any smooth convex curve without inflection point. We identify the ruling configuration through…
