For those interested here are two links about Miura-Ori Maps, which are related to Lang's Rose:

Does anyone know what the 2 key reference lines are?

<<<SNIP>>>

In this case ODS does not hold the answer, but ReferenceFinder does. I used
ReferenceFinder sequences to find 2 key reference lines and then derive the
others from those.

I don't know which reference lines Lang uses but I'm gonna tell a bit more about the method I use for getting the creases:

With reference finder I got a folding sequence (look earlier in this thread) for the red dot and with that I got the red and the green line depicted here:

Image

The reason I chose this specific dot is that in this CP this dot is closest to the diagonal so it was the best trade-off between accuracy and easiness of getting the dot by folding.

With the green line it is easy to get the 11ths vertically.

The blue line in the picture above is at 1/4 so it's easy enough to get.
With the red and the blue line together (and a bit good eye judgement) it is possible to find all the other horizontal creases.
So long and keep folding ^_^

thanks xing
i agree with polop.although i can collapse the pattern into a base in less than 10 minutes,but shaping the rose took about 1 hour +

Since this CP is so easy, can somebody give a not-CP-expert some hints on where to begin. I have read through the whole topic, but don't quite see where to begin after having made all the folds. Maybe some pictures?

Here's a rose by my friend Daniel Cardona Image
And after that one are two pictures of the base (those folded by me) to explain how it gets when collapsed

I feel really stupid now. i tried to make this by printing the CP and couldnt do it. it seemed to me for a long time that extra diagonal creases were needed so after trying for ages without them i gave up and put them in but it still wouldnt collapse properly... it seemed like it ought to but it wanted to spiral into itself and so got stuck.

I am so gutted that you guys managed this so easily and i am sat here with a ball of wrinkled paper.

EDIT: I hadnt at that stage seen the flickr pics. Maybe i can do it now... i think i was trying to be too clever
