The Foldinator Origami Modeler and Document Generator
is a software application under development by Zing Man Studios. The project is currently seeking funding to allow for the completion of the prototype and initial release version. If you or your organization awards grants to support research and development in the fields of new media arts, computer visualization or computational mathematics, please contact me
. Also you are interested in collaborating on the development, or in becoming a tester when there is a publicly available Foldinator demo, or simply have comments, please contact me as well.
