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.
