Box-pleating also uses mostly 45˚ and 90˚ angles if you look at the crease pattern. A lot of it is also based on the "Elias Stretch", which you could search online and find. It basically separates different areas of the paper into different flaps, when collapsed of course. It is one of the more basic box-pleating techniques, but also one of the most effective and widely used. And don't say you do that all the time unless you mean it.

Your welcome! I feel like I have too much time on my hands since i keep replying, but i really don't... Anyways, I only added that last sentence because it seemed fitting. Also i have no idea how Mr. Green got up there...

Ok, now i know what box-pleating is, and i have found out that i use it a lot,

What's circle packing?

circle packing is a way of telling you where the points on a model are, i think.

so there's nothing to do with circles then?

i'm not sure. you would have to ask someone more educated in this than me. All i know is that they point out where the points of the model are.

In circle-packed crease patterns, each circle represents a single flap of paper in the finished base, while rivers show separations between flaps. Also, the arrangement of the circles and rivers shows the model's structure--i.e. how the model was designed in the first place. And if you can figure out how the model was designed, then it will be easier for you to design your own model of a similar subject. Once you become accustomed to circle packing, almost any designs will come naturally.
Note: I learned all of this from Origami Design Secrets. Read the book for more information.

So i was partially right.
I want to buy the book soon, but i don't have enough money yet.

What Baltorigami said.
I own Design Secrets myself, but can't seem to figure out how to use it. I have both editions, so if you can refer me to a page on either that will help (or tell me here), that would be much appreciated!

Just about anything in chapters 10-11 should help. Also, there's some info in 13-14 as well. It's really hard to describe in words (at least for me), but those chapters should help you.

Thanks again for the definition! Now, is there anything else that i can't remember what it means?........

Re: Crease Pattern FAQ

Um... I dunno. Mix-pleating, Hex-pleating, molecules, hybrid bases, tree theory... I'm getting all of this from Origami Design Secrets.

P.S.: Thanks for the info Baltorigamist!
