Title

Single-Degree-of-Freedom Rigidly Foldable Origami Flashers

Keywords

Origami flasher, deployable structures

Abstract

We present the design for a family of deployable structures based on the origami flasher, which are rigidly foldable, i.e., foldable with revolute joints at the creases and planar rigid faces. By appropriate choice of sector angles and introduction of a cut, a single degree-of-freedom (DOF) mechanism is obtained. These structures may be used to realize highly compact deployable mechanisms.
