Demaine, Ku, and Lang recently (2016) invented a new origami computer file format, FOLD, and certain origami applications are beginning to support it. In this class we'll learn how to convert your designs into a FOLD file and how it can be used with ORIPA, Origami Simulator, Freeform Origami, and Rabbit Ear. We'll also talk in general about software-based design, why certain problems are easier to solve, and build an intuition about which problems can be handed off to computers and which are still best left to people.
