CAD tools for diagrams

Post by Tamsyn Francoise » Wed Jan 08, 2014 2:23 pm

Dear everybody,
Let me wish you a Happy New Year and all the best for 2014..
May the fold be with you.....
My question could be in the wrong forum...
but I was wondering if someone knew or heard about a software for both diagramming and 3D animated origami . Some sort of CAD tool which would give as a final result the same shown in the app "origami player "( This app is wonderful !!!! ) but I looking for something to be use on a MAC
I have been drawing many diagrams (traditional ones) in 2D . Now I am trying to find a software which could turn a CP into the folding process and showing the final figure in 3D which people could view from different angles (instead of using a 3D modeling and animation package such as Google SketchUp , or 3D Max)... So far, my searching hasn´t been very successful, ...
Most of the applications for modeling origami such as Oripa, Ori-Revo, foldinator etc...I came across ,don´t work with my machine ,or I cannot make them I said I have a MAC (still running on lion system.).
So if you have any ideas or suggestions ,
that would be very thankful

I still use illustrator to make 2D diagrams. I share your dream that one day we can easily produce 3D animated diagrams!
