Fold-less PUCK weavers

A fold-less PUCK weaver viewed perpendicularly to the plane of the apexes.
Replacing the folds in a 0-frequency PUCK weaver with triangles of conical curvature gives a PUCK weaver with points of infinite curvature but no actual folds. This may be the best weaver for materials that cannot be folded.
