Tent folding (Posted on 2004-12-30) Difficulty: 2 of 5
In folding an irregularly shaped tent, I managed to get the shape of a triangle, which was evenly thick. Unfortunately, the best way to fold a tent is in a rectangle that is evenly thick. How can I fold a triangle into a rectangle without making some parts of it thicker than others?
