Is there a program that creates origami instructions? Answered

I am an origami enthusiast in some of my spare time, and I have several of my own designs brewing. Does anyone know of any software that can help in the process of creating the step-by-step instructions so that they look nice and elegant? Alternatively, are there any programmers that would like to team up on this project and create one? I have some experience programming and have some other ideas up in my noodle if anyone is interested.

A loong time ago I had one, back in 1989. I'm surprised there hasn't been a new one made.

Pepakura Designer(http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/) will allow you to import 3D models and "unfold" them, adding fold lines in the process. It's shareware, but will provide a good basis for designing your own application... though many probably already exist.

Sourceforge.net might even have some.

I do know about 1 pop-up card designer, just type pop-up card designer in google and click on the hyperlink that leads you to tamasoft.co.jp, after that just download the file and begin creating pop-up cards!
