We present a new infinite class of polyhedra based on a class of origami bases that we have developed. To understand these polyhedra and their underlying bases, we examine drawings of their graphs. We present an elegant linear-time algorithm to find a straight-line planar drawing. It displays a recursive structure in the polyhedra that may lead to interesting fractals. We introduce a “zoom” feature that allows one to interactively explore the details of the graph while displaying this recursive structure.
