Rei v. 3

folded from an uncut square
designed by Brian Chan

Rei. version 3. The Impact of this clone comes from the color changes. The CP and design of this is more complex than one might expect at first. Because of the color changes and additional features, four times as much paper is used compared to the basic human "dummy figure" in the center of the CP.

I found a way to accomplish the color changes by considering the border of light and dark that traces around the colored regions of her figure. The border is the perimeter of the square from which she is folded, and segments of the perimeter become features on the final model. This idea was Instrumental in creating Rei 3. What remained was to combine the color change with circle packing theory.
