Crease Patterns (CPs) present a good way to represent complex origamis. Famous origami designers, like Satoshi Kamiya, Robert Lang and Brian Chan, often show CPs for their masterpieces.

However, it's hard to find a step-by-step diagram for folding these origamis. Although diagrams show mountain and valley lines, in an easy step-by-step sequence, they're not simple to make, and not aways there is a step-by-step sequence for folding those origamis.

Also, crease patterns can be more detailed than a folding sequence, showing additional information that illuminates the design or is helpful for the actual folding.

Our goal is to implement a software sollution that can find a sequence for folding CPs, and maybe translate the CPs into a step-by-step diagram.
