A program to desgin origami bases

TreeMaker 5 lets you draw a stick figure that represents the base you are after, specifying the lengths and connections between flaps, and lets you set various types of constraints that enforce symmetries in the base (e.g., mirror symmetry) and in the crease pattern (e.g., forcing particular crease angles). What TreeMaker 5 adds to previous versions:

  • Full mountain-valley crease assignments;
  • An x-ray image of the folded form of the base;
  • Numerous new options for display and simplified editing.

All files are under the GPL , except the files in the wnlib directory which are provide AS-IS without restriction.
