i don't know if there was any topic like this, then my search wasn't succesful.

So, i would like to ask if there is a crease pattern maker software?
Thanks for the answers in advance!

There's 'Treemaker 5", which is free to download, but in my opinion, it's hard to get used to. It's more of a tool to plan out how you'd tackle a particular model when designing. I just use Adobe Illustrator, which is nice for diagramming in general, but it expensive. But I'm pretty sure people here use different programs but I can't think of their names right now...

Hey JeossMayhem, I tried to use Illustator to diagram and draw up some crease patterns, but found it kinda hard to get the circles and angles right. I know that the software si capable of diagraming, but I'm just not capable of using it yet. Are there any tips or tricks you could share?

Much appreciated,

Rdude
If you can't fold it, try a bazooka.
