What version of Freeform Origami has the option of Origamize and Tensegritize as shown in the video. 
I'm dowloading The Binary version for, but does not have these options. 
I could tell from where can I get.

Hi, I've downloaded FODsoftware (thanks Tomohiro!) and I was wondering if someone could upload a cad file with an example to play around with. Many folded thanks!

amazing work Tomohiro. me and and another architect-teacher are playing around with it to apply it on some concrete origami excercises at a local university we teach at. here's the link for the final concrete models from last semester, developed using cad+rigid origami simulator+rhino+grasshopper >
again, thanx for the open-sourceness.
