Evolution's Way of Origami Diagrams


You have thought up a model of origami? Perfect! Now you need to think how to describe it so that other people will be able take pleasure in folding your figure. Certainly, the best way to teach others is simply to show them what is necessary to fold your model. However, this way works only in the event that you show it to the friends, which you see every day. And, what if you want to inform people living in another city or in another country? And then the DIAGRAMS will help you!

The preparation of the diagrams in Origami has its development. It's evolution goes from schematic sketches by hand which have a different quality from the negligent sketches to the precisely deduced drawings.

In the epoch of computers, there was then possible to create a more progressive form of diagrams made with the help of computer opportunities. This way is doubtless exact and accurate. Though here too, as in drawing by hand, experience and appropriate skills are necessary.

Sometimes people try to transfer the course of folding with the help of photographing the real process of making of origami. But frequently the hands of the folder cover part of the model and it becomes difficult to understand what is necessary to do. Besides the absence of symbols of origami complicates reading such diagrams and it is necessary to rely only on reading the instructional comments.

However to approach the real process of folding, the diagrams are a progressive step in the part of clarity of the diagrams. We have decided to unite computer drawing and photographing in a uniform complex. So the PHOTO-DIAGRAMS supplied with arrows and lines have appeared which show all necessary actions for making our origami models.

Also one of perspective ways of translation of an algorithm of folding on our site is by video. Our searches in this direction have resulted in an interesting way of submission of the video-information, which we have named "VIEW FROM YOUR EYES". The sense of this way consists that when the man looks a video-roller showing folding of any model, he sees it so, as if on a video his own hands are shown. Or else, everything that he needs to do is to follow a video. Such way will allow the person to successfully fold difficult and complex models not having wide experience in origami.
