[+] Architectural Origami: Origamizer, Freeform Origami, Rigid Origami Simulator

This class provides some extra details related to Tomohiro Tachi's software suite:
  • Hands-on folding of simple Origamizer example
  • Example of nonconvex vertex in Origamizer
  • Demo of Freeform Origami: simulation and design modes
  • Geometric constraints in Rigid Origami Simulator, Freeform Origami, and Origamizer
  • Nonlinear constraint solution (briefly)
  • Why NP-completeness matters less here
  • Automatic folding via robots and Printed Circuit MicroElectricalMechanical Systems (PC-MEMS)
  • Open problems in rigid origami
  • Paper shopping bag folding
