This paper presents research to find a computational method for creating freeform structures consisting of simple linear folded V - shaped stripes.
A geometric algorithm produces a series of stripes that form regular and irregular reticular structures on a given surface. This algorithm enables the approximation of single to double curved surfaces. The V- section form of the stripe has advantages over other known folded stripe systems by adding rigidity to the stripes and whole
structure. Indeed, simple linear folded stripes can be considered as half reverse folds. Being rectangular in unrolled condition, the stripes undergo no torsion when folded.
This system can be classified as a post defined open stripe system (Maleczek, Geneveaux 2011).
