Ron Resch (Ronald Dale Resch) was an artist, computer scientist, and applied geometrist, known for his work involving folding paper, Origami Tessellations and 3D polyhedrons.[1][2][3][4] [5][6][7]

Resch studied art at the University of Iowa receiving his Master of Fine Arts, and went on to become a professor of Computer Science at the University of Utah.[8]

He famously designed the Vegreville egg, the first physical structure designed entirely with computer-aided geometric modelling software.
