Origami Diagrams

Here are diagrams some of my models, in roughly increasing difficulty order. Please send me email with feedback on the accuracy and intelligibility of these diagrams.

I strongly suggest the PDF files over the GIF files. To read and print PDF files, you need the Adobe Acrobat Reader; get a free copy from their web site. If the diagrams seem to be missing text after about four pages, you need to get the most recent version. Also, you may need to check "Shrink to Fit" when printing from the Acrobat Reader.
