I cannot hex pleat, but I am fairly sure it is like box pleating, but instead of using 45 degree angles to make "boxes" you use 60 degree angles to make "hexagons".
Please, add me on flickr and tell me what you think!

None of whom seem to visit the forum much these days :(

Hex pleating IS pretty much boxpleating, you're just doing it on a hexagonal grid. There's not too much to explain-- you go through the same process of drawing a stick figure, forming a polygon/river packing, and drawing a CP.

If there are any of those steps you're having trouble with, maybe we can help?

Actually you do it on a triangular grid. The outcome is more space efficient than with boxpleating since hexagons resemble circles better than squares do.

i don't know anything about designing, but if you are looking for inspiration or a "how to" do hex-pleating, perhaps you might give kasumi seishi's afghan hound in origami tanteidan #13 a whirl. i do believe it uses hex pleating.

The closest I know of are the scales on the turtle by Robert Lang, but there are no long separated points as such (though fiddling does get you points if you try)...

I think (?) I've read elsewhere on this forum that hexpleating would get some space in the second edition of ODS though...

It would be difficult without breaking copyright laws. I know some of Kamiya's CP's are like that. Specifically dragonfly 1.1 and one of his wasps

hex pleating uses hexagonal symetry- as Lang describes it on his website: http://www.langorigami.com/art/gallery/gallery.php4?name=scorpion_hp

In terms of collapsing a crease pattern, hex pleating is the same as box pleating. 8) The problem is, though, most times people don't know how to make the actual triangular grid. The book Origami Design Secrets by Robert Lang can help with that. It also explains the math and packings behind the math of origami, which is crucial to know if you are enthusiastic about designing your own models.
