Short summary
The offset panel technique (OPT) is a method which accommodates for the use of thick materials in origami models and preserves both the range of motion and the kinematics. This work explores new possibilities for origami-based product applications presented by the OPT. Examples are included to illustrate some of the capabilities of the OPT, including the use of various materials in a design and manipulation of panel geometry resulting in increased stiffness and strength in the design.
