I was originally turned on to hexaflexagons while watching a video by vihart. I’ve since become a tad obsessed. My partner, Katie Conforti, and I created Hexaflexago, a hexaflexagon template generator.
- Generates a printable trihexaflexagon template
- Upload up the three images; Hexaflexago splices them into the template for you

- enable users to crop added images (currently Hexaflexago letterboxes images that are not regular hexagons)
- add documentation on how to fold the hexaflexagon template
- support adding six images to make hexahexaflexagons
I’m also currently working with Littoral Press to make hexaflexagon business cards. Here’s a prototype:
