Abstract

We developed a self-folding method of a printed paper. The paper self-folds along the printed line with a desktop inkjet printer to get 3D structure. In this paper, we introduce a method to fabricate multiple 3D structures simultaneously. Multiple development designs were arranged on A4 sized paper, and the A4 sized paper is printed to self-fold multiple developments. The proposed method has an advantage especially in small scale, because when design of the development is smaller, more numbers of structures can place in A4 sized paper and construct. Plenty of small and light 3D structures are fabricated simultaneously with low-cost. The feature has good affinity with swarm robotics, and many paper robots may locomote using their own structural intelligence obtained by the self-folding.
