Flatworm is a GHPython implementation of the pure-python module RFQM.py for generating 'rigidly foldable quadrilateral meshes' (RFQM) in Grasshopper, that are flat foldbale! Such meshes may be used to create complex and flexible structures out of rigid materials, as no mesh face is ever deformed in the folding process. Flatworm provides basic means of generating custom RFQMs as well as the famous Miura Ori fold pattern. Meshes are generated from four lists of angle arrays, describing the direction angles and fold angles for two sides of the mesh respectivly. The 'direction angle' is the ccw angle between the fold line and x-axis in xy-plane, while the 'fold angle' is the angle between the faces on either side of the crease in the fully folded state of the mesh.
