I have taken the time to study how exactly I came about to fold the octopus I designed and diagram it so that another may be able to repeat it. This is my first serious attempt to diagram a completed model and I understand that it may only make sense to me. If there are any critiques, I am willing to hear them.
I tried to minimize the amount of text, in the hopes that it could be understood universally. I suppose I still relied on Arabic numerals, but I am comfortable with that. I also relied heavily on the repeat symbol. I do not know if using it so often forces too much to happen simultaneously, or if it is appropriately efficient.
Anyway, I am pleased with it for my own documentation.
