Classifications of Origami


In origami it is accepted to fold models from a square sheet of a paper without scissors and glue. The birds, flowers, box and even the dinosaurs can be made from a single piece of paper. Sometimes completed models have some parts that are moveable and then the models wave wings or open mouths.

Some models are made from several sheets held together by paper locks. The folding of models from several sheets of a paper is applied in modular origami, where the cubes, spheres, box, pyramid, and other geometrical figures are built from identical modules. Here origami is represented to us as the entertaining paper designer.

In that case, when folding a model the different modules are used, we deal with heteromodular origami. Different modules typically combine to form dolls and various volumetric models.

It possible to classify origami not only by the quantity of sheets used in folding of models, but also on the degree of complexity of folding. It is possible to allocate: simple models (some creases), averaging (approximately 10 - 25 steps) and difficult (more than 30 steps). Inside each of these groups also there are similar distinctions.

It is impossible to determine direct dependence between the quantity of steps of folding and degree of complexity. This is because there is also the technique of folding, which is the additional factor of complexity. Practically each author of origami has his technique of folding.

An example of such combination of technique and quantity of steps can be found in the model "flower" by Yuri Shumakov, which has only one crease! Certainly, it is not enough to make one crease on a paper to repeat it. The secret consists in a unique technique of folding by the author.

Also it is possible to sort models of origami in categories of our real world: animals, people, plants, ornaments, structures, geometrical forms and others.
