Pessôa, Matheus; Maia, Lucas

IPT2018 Problem 4 Origami Launcher Federal University of ABC: Folded paper structures such as the Miura-ori origami can be programmed to exhibit a wide range of elastic properties depending on their crease and defect patterns. Design and build an origami cannon to vertically launch a standard Ping-Pong ball using only a single uncut sheet of A4 paper (80g/m²). How is the height of the ball elevation related to the folding pattern? Optimize your design to achieve the maximum height possible.
