This file was generated by Maze Folder, an app by Erik Demaine, Martin Demaine, and Jason Ku that creates crease patterns for any raised maze on a square grid. Based on the paper Folding Any Orthogonal Maze by the same authors.
Designed by David Huffman. Crease pattern adapted from the paper Reconstructing David Huffman's Origami Tessellations.
Designed by Ron Resch.
Conventional paper airplane. Pattern entered by Scott Pakin.
Designed by Robert Lang. All original crease patterns can be found on Lang's website.
Designed by Robert Lang using Treemaker. More info about Lang's Treemaker software can be found in the Treemaker Manual or in the book Origami Design Secrets. All original crease patterns can be found on Lang's website.

When this pattern is triangulated (during the setup of the simulation) it forms many skinny triangles, these triangles are very unstable as the pattern folds.
Alternating asymmetric triangulation of hypar from (Non)existence of Pleated Folds: How Paper Folds Between Creases.
Designed by Samuel Randlett.
Comparison of square twist bistability, inspired by the paper Origami structures with a critical transition to bistability arising from hidden degrees of freedom. Switch to strain visualization to compare patterns.
Designed by Koryo Miura.
Designed by Sam Calisch.
Designed by Johann Kreuter.
Designed by Jun Mitani.
Designed by Jun Mitani, crease pattern from the book Curved-Folding Origami Design.
Designed by Jun Mitani, crease pattern from the book 3D Origami Art.
Designed by Kendrick Feller based on the Spidron Tessellation by Daniel Kwan and similar spiral tessellations by Ekaterina Lukasheva.
Designed by Kendrick Feller based on a smocked pattern based on the origami of Alessandro Beber.
Designed by Elod Beregszaszi, original patterns available at Popupology.
Designed by Ullagami, original pattern available at Ullagami.
Designed by Tomoko Fuse. Crease pattern by Sara Adams. Create your own variations using David O'Sullivan's parametric whirlpool design tool.
Designed by Yoshinobu Miyamoto. Crease pattern from Happy Folding.
This file was generated by Polygami, an app by Shahul Alam, Lauren Huang, and Mahi Shafiullah that creates crease patterns for any 2D arrangement of voxels on a square grid.
Allow this pattern to fold, then select Allow User Interaction (Advanced Options right menu) and drag the central vertex to pop into into an alternate, inverted configuration.
Original design by Emmanuel Mooser. Crease pattern corrected and modified for rigid origami by William Gardner.
Based on Flower Tower design by Chris K. Palmer. Crease pattern files generated by William Gardner.
Designed by Goran Konjevod. Try folding these to ~65% and letting them settle to a curved shape.
Designed by Garrett Milliron based on the paper "Programmable active kirigami metasheets with more freedom of actuation." Generate more variations in this parametric design tool for auxetic pleated kirigami.
