OrigamiSimulator: The Simulator That Will Teach You to Become an Origami Master

This paper simulator allows you to follow, step by step, the procedure of creating any origami object

When it originated in China in the first or second century, those who practiced it could never have imagined the heights this noble art would reach, much less how technology would help its development. We are not talking about types of folds, much less qualities of paper, something that, of course, will have changed a lot over time, but projects like OrigamiSimulator, a platform that, thanks to technology, is capable of becoming the most patient and meticulous teacher when teaching us to create all kinds of sculptures with paper, from the simplest to the most intricate.

This is a software developed by the American designer Amanda Ghassaei that can visualize all kinds of origami pieces, in 3D, on our screen. The success of OrigamiSimulator lies in the fact that the platform allows us to follow in detail all the steps to create a paper sculpture, but we can also rotate it to observe closely and carefully every fold and crease. In addition, all the steps are explained from the first fold, with the flat paper and all the folding lines marked, so that the difficulty increases as the user advances, something that is achieved simply by advancing through the bar located under the digital origami piece.

Another great feature of OrigamiSimulator is the use of colors, which allows us to distinguish between the front or the back of the paper and that, in extremely complicated pieces (which also exist) becomes completely essential.
