Simplicity for Designers. Precision for Engineers.
Foldstar combines powerful, proprietary geometric algorithms with an easy-to-use interface.
Engineer periodic folded materials with emergent dynamics from tessellated units and cross-sectional controls. Animate and hone your designs in our SolidWorks® module for complete integration in your workflow.
FoldStar® software employs decades of innovative folding technologies across industries to provide a versatile, practical, and experienced tool. By removing the focus on mathematical minutiae, FoldStar allows you to reach your full inventive and creative potential.
Create 3D folded designs never before possible
Rapidly prototype doubly periodic folding materials in a high-precision, user-friendly environment. Build the edge and cross-sectional profiles of a desired structure then let FoldStar solve the dynamic constraints to generate a true folding geometry in a seamless, high-velocity workflow.
Choose from a range of presets, then tweak and modify the units of tessellation to explore an infinitely varied family of structures.
