The past 25 years have seen the development of powerful mathematical methods for designing origami. Many of those methods are to be found at the heart of computational tools for origami design, both old and new. In fact, the field of computational origami tools has already grown too broad to fit within a single talk! In this talk, though, I will present some of my own thoughts and experiences using mathematical and computational tools for origami design. I’ll cover a few of the tools I use: what they’re good for (and what they’re not so good for) and some recent developments in the field.
