I am attempting to make a box for a Packaging Class here at the Art Institute of Seattle. I am in a BS/ Industrial Design Technology (Bachelors of Science/IDT), and have a challenge to create a box with a pleated domed top (my idea), that is, a round base, vertical sides (either in a hexagonal or smooth circular pattern), that then curves (when folded) inward towards a central closure, that then can be unfolded into the box opening. I certainly can figure this out,.. yet would enjoy any input that you can offer. This is a Non-Commercial endeavor, and I will certainly cite you as a resource for this projectMy inspiration was an old fashioned coin purse that used to be popular with men here in America, that is one that would open like a flower blooming, as the diagonal pleats with seperated.

I haven’t had a chance yet to write tutorials on using radial gores (which is what you’re describing), but I’ve posted a crease pattern that uses that approach that may help you (Pleated Bowl). You may also be interested in Jun Mitani’s work and OriRevo program, as well as some of Robert Lang’s bowls and the tato boxes by various designers.
I hope that helps!
really lovely! INSPIRES perseverence
