Folded thin shell surfaces, or origami to the ancient Japanese, is characterised by mountain (convex) folds, vally (concave) folds and the intersections of these fold lines in the form of fold vertices. By considering the spherical image of the different classes of fold vertex (or Vertex Roofs), equations can be derived, which can then be used solve for the folded up geometry of an arbitrary folding template, in its folded up state. This technique is applied to the templates which fold up into enclosed volumes, and allows for maximum volumes to be found.
