There are many reasons to draw Crease Patterns (CPs): to keep a record of one’s own designs, to work out the structure of a new design, to search for folding sequences of a model,… Whatever your reason, if you work with CPs and you have an iPhone or an iPad, OrigamiDraw is the best tool you can get (and it is free). It is a portable tool to keep all your designs in one place, and to record new ones wherever you are, using familiar operations like segment and angle bisection, perpendicular and parallel lines, and all the traditional bases.

In this class, you will learn, from its creator, everything you need to know about this app, from getting started to becoming proficient, how to get faster and how to handle complex structures.

An iPhone or an iPad with OrigamiDraw installed and separate from the device used for Zoom is recommended but not mandatory. Some familiarity with Crease Patterns (CP) is required (hence the “High intermediate” rating); this class will not teach what a CP is. Nevertheless, it might give some ideas on how to read a CP, and how to draw one for a new model.
