Children Must Study New Algorithm to Produce 3-D Shapes

14 Aug 17

New algorithm came out with surprising yet practical paper-folding patterns to produce any 3 – D structures. It can generate optimal origami folding patterns for any kind of shape. An MIT Professor of electrical engineering and computer science, Erik Demaine who was in 1999 was an 18 year old PhD student at the University of Waterloo, Canada published a paper. It described an algorithm that can tell how to fold a piece of paper into any 3-D structure.

The paper added milestones to the field of computational origami. Initially, he took long strips of paper and then woven it into the desired structure. The resulting structures were not sturdy. The 1999 paper was titled as “A universal algorithm for folding origami shapes that guarantees a minimum number of seams.” The completion of quest was announced at the Symposium on Computational Geometry in July by Demaine and Tomohiro Tachi. Both of them are also working to implement the algorithm in a new version of Origamizer.
