Crease pattern: Bend variation

I designed a variation to my crimp-bends last spring, and here is the crease pattern. The concept is similar, but instead of being based on two sine waves, this version is based on one sine wave and one straight horizontal line. In this variation, part of the flat plane joining the top and bottom tubes is exposed. So far I haven’t figured out a mathematically correct way to place the central line such that the joining plane folds flat, but it comes close enough to work in practice.
