algorithmic modeling for Rhino
This is a work in progress definition which I hope will create folded geometry from generic crease patterns using origami or kirigami. The input (for now) is the outline of the surface, valley folds, and mountain folds.
The definition uses a native bending force on each crease to initiate the fold. I'm trying to avoid using anchor points and other constraints to make the fold more uniform.
I'm hoping to eventually use Tomohiro Tachi's Origamizer to create a flat-packed crease pattern from any mesh geometry and then fold it in rhino using kangaroo. Any help from people doing similar studies would be much appreciated!
