# Rigid Origami with Kangaroo

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!

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.  ;)

Thanks a lot :)

Hi Arthur - I promise I'll post some kangaroo origami examples soon.

Hi Andrew, this is brilliant!

Would you know where we could find an example file of Origami using Kangaroo?

Hey this is cool, great to see more people folding with Kangaroo - can you post this on www.curvedfolding.com... would be good to get it on this site for all the folders to see. Greg
