Abstract

Printed origami structures are fabricated by combining direct-write assembly of planar lattices with a wet-folding origami technique. This novel approach provides a low-cost, versatile route to create three-dimensional structures from diverse materials, whose shapes range from simple polyhedra to intricate origami forms.
