Computer Aided Origami Designs
So lately I have been sidetracked from my pleating by the ingenius Polly Verity. She has inspired me to start playing with curves. I bought a CAD program ViaCAD and have been rather obsessed lately, although that is starting to subside, more because the last two crease patterns I made didn’t work on the first try. I tend to discard things if they don’t work the first time around, a habit I am working to get past. So below are two crease patterns for two units and the pictures of what the finished units look like. I highly recommend you score with a stylus or a dead pen before you fold the creases. These can be tessellated and I recommend you use cardstock or some heavier paper although you can do them in copy paper. The designs make me think of futuristic architecture and are surprisingly strong.
