I can second that. It is most definitely copy-pasted from Lang's website.

Indeed, it is from CREASE PATTERNS FOR FOLDERS. I should have known since I've read that post many times (but not to the point of learning it by heart). Also because "aficionado" seems to be one of his favorite words :wink: .

As far as I'm aware, ORIPA can't bisect a straight angle (i.e., make a perpendicular at a given point along a crease with nowhere to drop it). This is similar to Axiom 4 except that the given point is on the crease in question.
Is there a way to do it in your app? It's possible to make an extra crease and just delete it later, but that seems like unnecessary work.

Indeed. I had never noticed that! Oripa quietly ignores any attempt to draw a perpendicular to a line from a point that belongs to the line. It behaves even more curiously if you try to bisect a flat angle. I am not sure what it does but it is certainly wrong.

Actually, I don't know how you could work around this limitation, short of using the angle/length tool or making some elaborate construction (e.g., a symmetrical segment followed by an angle bisector).

OrigamiDraw has no problem drawing a perpendicular to a line regardless of whether the point is external to the line or sits on it. Check it here. The new version I am preparing will even be easier to use.

It sounds like there’s a bit of a learning curve, but I look forward to trying it at some point.

The new version I mentioned two months ago is finally out!

If you have already been using OrigamiDraw, you will see a startup window warning you that I have changed the order of entry for the Mirror function. I apologize for making you change your habits but I think you will feel it more natural. You will also appreciate that the Mirror function and the Angle N-Section now work with parallel folds.

If you install it for the first time, you will be led through the learning process a little bit better than before. If you miss it, just go in Settings and see all the help options, including a link to some tutorial pages on my website.

The site was improved as well. Most importantly, it is now ad-free! Then, I can now add videos that you can pause, rewind, skip, or change the speed at will, so it is easier to follow long demos like the frog on the front page. And I added a Privacy Policy, in case you were worried.

For more details and some demos, see my blog entry.

Check it all out! And let me know if you like it.
