Diagram Database

We maintain a giant database of free instructional diagrams available across the Internet. You can access these from the Diagrams option in the main menu or by clicking the button below. The diagrams are organized into several different categories and include the difficulty, model name, designer and a link to the diagrams.

Crease Pattern Database

Crease patterns are a common way of documenting how to fold different models as they’re much easier to make than a set of diagrams. A crease pattern is what the paper looks like after you fold the model and then unfold it.

You end up with a sort of digram of lines showing where all the folds are. Skilled folders can then read the lines, make the folds and fold the model that way.

You can access this section from the Crease Patterns option in the main menu or by clicking the button below. This section is organized just like the diagram section with links to a ton of different crease patterns on lots of different websites.

Video Tutorial Database

Video tutorials are another fantastic way to learn how to fold. Unlike diagrams you can watch someone work through all the intermediate stages of each step and see exactly how the paper moves from one step to the next.

We recently added a section with almost 2,000 video tutorials which you can access from the main menu or by clicking the button below. It’s organized just like the diagrams and crease pattern sections.
