Research content
In this research, we study a design method for the geometry of origami. Origami is one of Japanese traditional plays which creates desired shapes by simply folding a sheet of paper. As paper material is inextensible, it is difficult to create the geometry of folded forms by existing CG/CAD tools. We design algorithms and numerical optimization methods based on origami mathematics, and develop a new system combined with them.
