Rigid folding representation by the Stereographic Projection

  title={Rigid folding representation by the Stereographic Projection},
  author={Lando Mentrasti},
Abstract The Stereographic Projection machinery is applied to the qualitative and quantitative description of the folding problem of an origami-like structure: the facets of a creased rigid sheet undergo successive rotation about several creases arbitrarily located in the three-dimensional space. The theoretical apparatus is revisited and some basic problems are depicted to emphasize both the simplicity and the great efficiency of the representation. Several original results, useful to simplify… CONTINUE READING
