algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Daniel Piker showed me how to use his brilliant Kangaroo plugin for Grasshopper to do rigid origami simulations, as he first showed here: vimeo.com/13967255
Here's my first successful one!

hi
i have question
how can i add origami pattern on surface?
I just added an origami example using the hinge force to the examples page of the Kangaroo group:

It should be possible to just replace the mesh with your own folding pattern, and choose the mountain/valley curves then fold it.
I've been meaning to do a tutorial for a long time - The possibilities are actually much more open now that Kangaroo includes a "Hinge" force. However I am deep in work for my undergraduate thesis right now... maybe after I'm done I'll have time to put together a tutorial.
The basic idea though is to use very stiff springs for creases and weak (invisible) springs for the fold attractions. And sometimes you need to start the vertices off with a little initial velocity to get them going in the right direction.
Can do you do a tutorial!!!???... It looks amazing!!! :O
I'm new here. I'm wondering if there is a place where the definitions for origami folding using Kangaroo can be found. I'm working on a very specific folding typology and hope to solve some of the mathematical questions I have about the form using Rhino.
Could you please show us the definition? Thanks (:
This is great! What's with all of the secretive folding demonstrations? Will figure this out and share it for all...just a minute. ;)

Hi Andrew, this is brilliant!
Would you know where we could find an example file of Origami using Kangaroo?
