Title

Approximating Doubly-Curved Surfaces with Geodesically Segmented Developbable Surfaces

Abstract

In origami design it is of interest to be able to design fold patterns that approximate arbitrary surfaces. One such method exists to approximate rotationally symmetric surfaces using series of singly-curved (developable) surfaces connected along geodesic curves, that can be arranged into a fold pattern. We modify this method to create fold patterns that approximate arbitrary doubly-curved surfaces
