Points and Lines on Folded Paper
Drag the locator to fold the piece of piece of A4 paper, which is yellow on one side and light blue on the other. You can add points

or
using the 2D sliders on the left. Vary these controls to verify Huzita's axioms.

DETAILS
Huzita's axioms [1, pp. 285–286]:
A1. Given two points, one can fold a crease line through them.
A2. Given two points, one can fold a crease along their perpendicular bisector, folding one point on top of the other.
A3. Given two lines, one can fold their bisector crease, folding one line on top of the other.
A4. Given a point and a line, one can fold a crease through one point perpendicular to the line, folding the line onto itself.
A5. Given two points and a line, one can fold a crease through one point that maps the other point onto the line.
A6. Given two points and two lines, one can fold a crease that simultaneously maps one point to one line and the other point to the other line.
