Lucanus cervus v1.1 - Kota Imai

Postby Malleon » July 31st, 2015, 3:59 pm

Hi, I'm currently folding Kota Imai's Lucanus cervus v1.1, and currently stuck at a particular area, specifically at the pointed transition unit:


I've isolated an 8x8 part of the cp of the particular area and folded it in ORIPA. ORIPA successfully folded it, but I cannot seem to collapse the particular part. It looks like a transition unit, but I've tried folding it using a lot of ways and cannot seem to collapse it according to the MV assignment. Can someone please help?

It looks like a reverse-fold in an edge to make room for a corner. Personally, I would ignore the m/v assignment and simply collapse it out of the way or simply ignore it. If it's necessary, you'll find that out fairly quickly.
After the fall, we rise.
