A reference point is a method of finding the exact location of a crease on a crease pattern through the use of angle bisectors, grids, etc.

A reference point is a point that once you find how to get it, you can find many of the creases needed for the model. Models often have several reference points. There is also references, which are not necessarily points. For example, if someone were to ask me what the reference was for Eric Joisel's Dwarf, I would reply one-third. This is because knowing that one of the creases is one-third, (you can also count the pleats) you now have the ability, as cranemaster so beautifully stated, to find all or at least some of the exact locations of creases on a crease pattern through the use of angle bisectors, grids, and more.

To cranemaster: I didn't quote that because I had to adjust it a little to be grammatically correct. Hope you don't mind!

Hope this helps!

I honestly couldn't care less about that. I just posted the message quickly and was not really concerned about grammar. Thanks for elaborating my post! If you think about it, the definition is relatively obvious; reference point=point of reference (for a crease).

Reference point as it name implies a point, mark, edge, crease, intersection, anything that would allow you to know where to find the references for a model without having to print the CP.

Moderator comment: This post relates to a deleted post that said: You only really need to know one or two creases, and those should let you know what the entire rest of the model is.

Not to be annoying and contradict you, but some models you will need many references.

Um which peacock is this? I'm pretty sure there are a lot of origami Peacocks out there... Can you tell us the author?

EDIT: I would also recommend some box-pleated crease patterns for practice. I did that for a while, then moved on to other styles, as i find the precreasing for box-pleating quite tedious. I recently have not done a lot of origami, so I don't remember too much about my first crease patterns. I wish you luck though!

Okay, thanks! I tried some Pokemon origami a while ago. Some are pretty easy, while others get quite annoying... Satoshi Kamiya's Phoenix is actually not too hard if you understand box-pleating. I also did a few modified cranes i found somewhere, which were basically an introduction to box-pleating for me. I'll have to get on my old, slow laptop and sift through files.

I never really understood what box-pleating was really. If someone explained it to me, i expect i'd go "ohh, yeeaahh, i do that all the time!".

Well it's a little late here so I won't try to explain it, but Robert J. Lang and many others have done an exceptional job explaining it. I may be back tomorrow to tell you. ;)

where you crease a grid onto the paper, either diagonal or horizontal, and most of the creases used fall onto those lines while the rest use those as references.
