Tessellated folding patterns can be used to design deployable structures and high-performance core materials via algorithms that utilize linkage designs. The efficient packing of folded sheet linkages can be used for the packing and deployment of antenna, solar panels, reflectors, and softgood materials in inflatables and decelerators.

FoldStar software designs surfaces with 360-degree cone angle at all vertices, making it a perfect tool to create composite fabrics without cutting or darting and can be used for core structures. Other desirable mechanical characteristics can be designed using the FoldStar Software’s commands in SolidWorks for FEA testing to produce and test a diverse range of structural options.
