Thermoplastic Folding Technique: CUT'N FOLD®

This answers a question that I have been entertaining regarding simple methods of producing low fidelity protypes for design students.

Foam and Wood both tend to be pretty costly and messy materials in which to create 3D models.

So it would seem ideal for design students to explore the art of Origami, to construct representive 3D models then repeat the process in plastic to create a finished model. The goal would be to allow students to explore in 3D and better understand how forms are constructed.
