This is a tool for rapidly creating living hinge patterns in Processing. I was first inspired by the work on the Curved Laser Bent Wood Instructable (and Part 2) by Aaron Porterfield and then started looking into how paper behaved when laser cut with the patterns.
I tried (and somewhat failed) to create living hinge patterns in Adobe Illustrator that would reliably cut the way I wanted. I decided that I could develop a software tool that would make it easier for me, even if I did still have to write the software. Well, at least it would be fun for me.
