Boxpleater program

Post by NeverCeaseToCrease »

Hey everyone,

I don't think I've mentioned it here yet, but I created an open source python program to assist with designing box pleated models. You can watch the demo video here, and if you find it interesting, you can download it at this github link: https://github.com/theplantpsychologist/boxpleater-beta

The demo video: https://youtu.be/0EQbqVHCq-Y

It doesn't replace designing by hand, but one thing that it especially automates is designing 2d words, like this one here, and I explain how to do that in the video. You just gotta know how to shape it though. Imageorigami by The Plant Psychologist, on Flickr

Anyways, let me know any feedback, if it's useful or not, and if you are a coding hackerman then feel free to make a pull request if you see any bugs or features you can fix.

I made a similar program, but this time it uses Lang's universal algorithm to generate arbitrary pythagorean stretches. I also found a way to make it browser based so you can use it without having to download the .py file (although you can)

Try it out here: https://repl.it/@ThePlant/pytha-calculator#main.py

I also recorded a demo if you have questions on how to use it. https://youtu.be/q4KaKyq0d-0
