Just saw this scanner app - quite low res with no lens correction so far. But it is getting updated regularly, just got export (for £4.99...)

Some interesting investigations into structural and aesthetic use of straight and curved folding in a commercial context (cars appear around the 20 minute mark):

I have many books about geometric construction.
A few years ago in one of them, I found a paragraph about the K-dron patented by Kapitza. I studied the form and created a 2-D pattern for it.
Then I printed a bunch of them on construction paper. I asked my students to build them. We glued the best ones next to each other on a piece of cardboard.Then depending on the angle of a direct light we could see rhombuses or triangles or parallelograms. It was quite intriguing.… Continue

Just in a class using Photo Scene Editor at Autodesk University - new photogrammetry software - basically it stitches your photos on their servers to create a 3D model. I tried this before the class... not sure if I'm going to learn anything new. What I wanted to learn was how export this as a mesh, which doesn't seem to be enabled in the download.
Will update soon on this feature...

Quick Update: I have renewed the Ning subscription, which some people had mentioned was moving from free to paid - so we can stay with Curved Folding on Ning... Ning is the choice of the Grasshopper network, and various other Rhino related networks - so a good choice for us here too. It also makes it easy to manage workshops and other group activities - so feel free to set up your own groups, use the forum or upload pictures and videos. See you soon, Greg.

Thanks John - Ning will announce their pricing plans on the 4th May. (The curvedfolding.com site is a paid site anyway). I will try and maintain this site as-is rather than port to another platform, but this is an option. Will keep everyone updated via the forum...Greg

I'm not sure if you are aware - Ning announced on 16 April its intention to phase out it's
free service starting in May. See:

There is a report in Building Design on the Smart Geometry Conference 2010, by Hugh Davies.
At the end he says Bentley are offering Generative components for free at www.Bentley.com/GetGC
How much time would one need to invest to start to get results from it.

There was so much output during the 4 day workshop - each participant documented their workflow, showing some of the processes they used.
The design methodology was set to be reactive, rather than let participants 'design' -this abstraction gave rise to some outlandish forms as a result.
Other participants concentrated on fabrication. Various types of perforation, material, machines, scanners… Continue

Quad mesh plugin for Grasshopper - could be (theoretically) useful in the upcoming Smart Geometry workshop... ;-)
Will see if this can be constrained to convert surface mesh to a mesh that is a row of single faces i.e. ruled developable equivalent quad mesh.
to site...… Continue
