An excellent an interesting article - thank you! I have been hooked on Origami ever since I discovered 'Gecko and fly on a wall' by Herman van Goubergen and have often wondered about the mathematics behind it. Given that repeatedly folded paper becomes 'thick' quite quickly, I wonder, does TreeMaker take this into account or does it assume an infinitely thin sheet of paper?
