Crease Pattern Challenge #52 is Seiji Nishikawa’s 15° Based Camel.
I don’t like it. Normally, I wouldn’t be so direct, but he has probably hundreds of models that I love anyway. This one did grow on me a bit, but it feels more like an experiment on 15° based models. That’s fine too, but I’m in it for the camels, man.
It is a fine enough camel, but having to fold so many thirds for it doesn’t seem worth it. Maybe it’s one of those “elegantly simple” models?
The model is actually from a weird hexagon. The angles are simple enough, but finding the reference points for the hexagon was difficult for me. Initially, I just traced the pattern, but I went back because I’m stubborn. I’m honestly not sure how well I got it. You can see the back hump is off, so one of the points might be shifted. However, I’m pretty haphazard on folding. Anyway, my method for finding the reference points is below.
