fold it!

This is a place where we can work together towards an open CAD standard, initially based on a quad-mesh geometry, for representing and modelling curved folding geometries...and show what we have crafted in paper, modelled in CAD and then fabricated. Join us!!!

The site was set up by Gregory Epps, founder of RoboFold, as a way to create a social network for anyone involved in folding, CAD and fabrication.

"It should be possible, the best way to test this is to make the paper version. when you twist the paper version, you should be able to see if the quads are deforming into two triangles i.e. twisting and becoming no-planar. "
