For advanced origami folders, OrigamiDraw brings an unparalleled level of comfort to Crease Pattern (CP) design. On your couch —or anywhere inspiration strikes you— draw your CP as you would fold your paper, intuitively, easily, fast.

With OrigamiDraw, you can:
- Perform all folds possible with the 7 Huzita-Hatori/Justin axioms
- Divide segments and angles in any number between 2 and 8
- Compose with building blocks from rabbit ear to frog base, or even you own pattern
- Propagate new folds across existing ones, alternating mountain and valley folds (or not)
- Instantly find the missing fold to flatten the paper around a node
- Find and retain all references needed to replicate your model exactly
- Verify the flat-foldability of your base, with clear indications if anything is missing
- See an X-ray image of your folded model
- Keep all your CPs in one place
- Create different versions as your design evolves or to show a folding sequence
- E-mail your CP to your desktop computer as an Oripa, Orihime, PNG, JPG, and/or SVG file

What’s New

Version 2.3

Copy, Paste, and Mirror-Paste, within a CP or from one CP to another. This allows all kinds of manipulations, like re-using part of a design, completing a symmetrical CP or a tiling, or designing a tilted-grid model.

Slightly difficult to use, but it’s still as good as you can get on a mobile device.

Would be a great app if. . .

This is a great app, but there is one major thing that would be great if you could change. The thing is that whenever I finish a cp and click the “done” button, it just deletes the whole thing and I can’t get it back.

When I said the “done” button, I meant the “file” button, which is the only one I could find that I thought would save and close the cp. when in finish drawing it and press the file button, it just shows a white square where the cp was, and when I tap on it, it is like I never even drew anything and even the grid that I was using is set back to the 2 by 2 one.

I deleted the app and redownloaded it, and it is working now! Thanks for your advice.

Developer Response ,

This is VERY strange. If it were normal, I would get many more complaints as the whole idea is to have a repository for all of your CPs. The only place with a button labelled “Done” is in the Tutorial, and you cannot really draw any CP there. Could you give me more detail?
Follow-up: Thank you for these additional details. It seems like something has gone wrong in the initialization of the database. I would suggest deleting the app and installing it again. Please let me know if things go smoother the second time. Follow-up 2: Great! Glad we solved it. Enjoy the app now!

Very good

Although some of the features are hard to use sometimes, this is a very solid crease pattern drawer.
