ORIGAMI ARCHITECTURE PATTERNS « EMBROIDERY & ORIGAMI Baud and Bui | Kirigami-Origami, Idees de Papier, free paper Includes several paper and plastic arts in addition to origamic architecture. There are several pictures and patterns available as well as a biography of Masahiro Origamic architecture – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Origamic architecture involves the three-dimensional reproduction of architecture, geometric patterns, everyday objects, or other images, on various scales, using cut Origamic Architecture, pop-up cards and other kirigami. Origamic architecture and pop-up cards are a type of kirigami. 3d origami dragon pattern, make origami ancient dragon | Schwag Racing 3d origami dragon pattern >>> 3d origami dragon pattern. blue's Chinese 3D modular origami: Chinese Dragon – Diagram You follow the usual pattern of Free Origami Diagrams, Videos, Printable Models, Architecture Hand-selected Web sites for learning how to fold origami animals, flowers, and other creative models for all levels.

Kirigami pop up cards What is an Emulator? An emulator duplicates (provides an emulation of) the functions of one system with a different system, so that the second system behaves like (and appears to be) the first system. This focus on exact reproduction of external behavior is in contrast to simulation, which concerns an abstract model of the system being simulated, often considering internal state. So what does this simply mean? The use of emulators allow any computer system to pretend to act like hardware and duplicate it's processes. Can I Download Emulators? Yes, allows the download of any emulation files that are contained on the site. Can I Download Commerical ROMS from here or anywhere? No, does not have any ROM files on the server, nor do we link to any particular sites. What Are Roms? ROM first of all stands for Read-Only-Memory. What ROM site do you recommend? I recommend only legal ones to support the use of further emulation development. Plugins? Most Popular Emulator

Origamic Architecture: Stunning Sculptures Cut Out of Paper In the Japanese paperfolding art of origami, cutting the paper is frowned upon. But in 1981, Masahiro Chatani, professor of Architecture at Tokyo Institute of Technology proved that papercutting could indeed produce stunning pieces of art. Along with his colleague Keiko Nakazawa, Chatani developed Origamic Architecture, a variation of kirigami (itself a variation of origami where cuts were allowed), where you only needed an X-acto knife and a ruler to create complex 3-dimensional structures out of a single sheet of paper. Origamic Architecture sculptures range from (the relatively simple) geometric patterns to famous buildings' facades. It's like 3-D pop-up greeting cards, but much, much more complex. While looking at the examples below, keep this in mind: everything's done with the simple cuts of the knife. Simple cuts can result in stunning geometric shapes - from Gerry Stormer's gallery (click the artist's name for more): Stairs to Paradise by Gerry Stormer (Photo: Carl Uetz)

Laser Cutting and Scoring: A Folded Shape Paul Haeberli Nov 1996 This project explores using lasers to score and cut material to create very precise and complicated folded patterns. This was my first experiment in laser manufacturing. To get going, I read the AutoCad DXF spec and got a sample file from the studio that provides laser cutting services. The program generated a drawing that looked like this. I transferred the DXF file to a PC floppy and gave it to the studio with the laser cutting machine. On mylar the scored lines appear a light gray color, while on paper these score lines are slightly brown. To make this shape, first the material is folded into a zig zag pattern. Then one side of the object is folded like this. Finally the other side is folded in a similar way to complete the object. This is the same shape fabricated from paper. It's nice to explore the possibilities of these shapes as they are manipulated. Perhaps someday we can model the dynamics of these kinds of surfaces on the computer.

Laser Cutting and Scoring: A 3D Surface Function Paul Haeberli Nov 1996 In this project, I construct a sculpture of a 3D surface function out of cardboard. This is my second experiment in laser manufacturing. The cardboard sheet looks like this after laser scoring and cutting. All the individual pieces are packed onto one sheet for efficiency. This part of the structure forms a rack to support 23 individual cards that slice through the surface function. This rack has 207 small slots cut into it. The rack is folded into a zig zag shape using scored lines on the under surface. Tabs on each card will fit into these slots. A binary encoded tag is scored into each card so the cards can be inserted in the correct order. Putting the first card in is a little tricky, but after a little while everything comes together. One down, 22 to go. This is the geometry of the tabs that fit into each slot. Next I insert the last card. Now adding cards is easy. Completing the entire assembly takes only about 15 minutes. Here's the final surface.

Paper and Plotter: A 3D Surface Paul Haeberli This was one of my first projects in computer graphics. While an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, I found a Hewlett-Packard desktop calculator with a small pen plotter in the math library. I spent many hours programming it to draw slices of a function f(x,y) on 3"x5" cards. Then I carefully cut out the shape of each slice with scissors to form this 3D sculpture. One nice thing about this is it can be folded flat. More recently, I've developed software to drive a laser cutter to make a similar model.

Dissection Pieces By a dissection puzzle, I mean the kind of puzzle where you have several polyhedra, and you have to fit them together to make another. There are lots of simple examples, and then more difficult puzzles. For now I only have simple puzzles; but although they are simple they are still fascinating. Index The Pieces How they fit together The pieces Pyramid Tetrahedron Note, it's not too hard to do a little reversing and rearranging of some of the folds (making no additional creases) so that only one side of each sheet of paper shows, so you can make a model of a single colour even if your paper is white on one side, coloured on the other. cube with two pyramids sliced off Note, this ends up looking like a kind of box; there are various methods to make it more "solid"; one possibility is simply to make another of the pyramids, and turn it upside down and place it in the triangular openning of this "box". cube box Octahedron How the pieces fit together Puzzle One Puzzle Two Puzzle Three

Square Twist The above images show the simplest square twist pattern - one unit, four units, 16 units, and 64 units sucesisvely. Each is folded from a single sheet of paper. The square twist is one of the simplest kind of unit for a tessellation. Here are instructions for folding one unit: There are lots of different ways of putting square twists together to make a repeating pattern. Eg, put four together like this: It's easiest if you do precreasing first, that is, put the following creases into the paper before you begin to twist the squares: If you want, you can just put the following creases in: (ignore the dotted lines). With many tessellations, you need to fold all the folds gradually at the same time. The above images are of tessellation patterns obtained in very simple ways from the simplest square twist pattern, just by adding extra folds in various places after folding the basic pattern as above. Or even do one on top of the other.
