VIP Definitions

Paper positioning. When describing folding sequences and moves it is important to ensure that the paper is orientated in the same way as the instructions have been written.
Therefore we will be using the following conventions;

Imagine that you are sat at a table. The nearest edge of the table to you is perfectly straight, and runs horizontally from left to right.
This edge is the "Horizontal Reference"- HR
Directions will use this HR as a base line.
An imaginary line at 90 degrees to HR and parallel to the floor is the Vertical Reference - VR

  • Vertical: In a direction perpendicular to HR
  • Horizon Edge: The edge that is closest to you and the table's edge if the paper is lying on the table
  • Furthest Edge: The edge of the model that is furthest away from you if the paper is lying on the table
  • RAT: Right Angle Triangle
  • Raw Edge: This is an edge of the original square
