Folding structure with variation

I had a bit of time to finally get around to the next stage of the folding structure.  I was curious if a variation in panel dimension or in panel angle would still work in terms of folding.  I was surprised to find out that both work.  Here are a few images:

Simple animation where the skeleton angle is varied, which results in the overall assembly folding or unfolding.

Variation of the panel angle only.
Here is the angle and length of panel varied across the assembly.
