PleatBox wrote:Thanks! I am really new to this, so it might take a bit of time to understand it!
First of all, what are the numbers about? how do they relate to finding ref. points? Can you kindly show me the process of using, and coming up with these? A help from the experienced folders will be incredibly helpful!
I believe understanding how these work will help me in origami so much!
PleatBox wrote:So now how do the ratios come into play? For example, the ratios that Baltorigamist posted here, 2:2+sqrt2, how do i turn it into a number that I can put into the paper?
PleatBox wrote:I tried to use pythagoras' theorem, since the vertical line on the right is equal to 1(lets call it a), and the 22.5 degree line is equal to 1+sqrt2(called c), I can then calculate b, the horizontal line right? I did the math but it doesn't work, probably because I'm doing something wrong
PleatBox wrote:Why is the red triangle measured 1-1-sqrt2? Shouldn't be the numbers be a bit lower, since 1 is the length of the square's sides, and sqrt2 is the main diagonal of the square?

PleatBox wrote:Also, what if I want to find the coordinates for a point inside the paper?, for example, if I fold a paper into thirds, the creases will intersect the main diagonal right? how will I find the references for those?
