<p><b>File Import Tips</b><br/><br/>
Bad design files will throw errors and create models that explode or cannot be solved, here are some tips for
importing FOLD or svg files that work.<br/><br/>
<b>Importing FOLD:</b><br/>
<b>Importing SVG:</b><br/>
supported line types: path objects, line objects (coming), rect objects (coming).<br/>
valley: red rgb(255, 0, 0), hex #ff0000<br/>
mtn: blue rgb(0, 0, 255), hex #0000ff<br/>
outline: black rgb(0,0,0) hex #000000<br/>
stroke and line style do not matter.<br/>
target fold angle set by opacity: 1.0 = PI, 0.5 = PI/2, 0 = 0<br/>
This tool should be able to automatically clean files of slightly misaligned vertices, stray vertices,
duplicate lines (coming), and anchor points falling in the middle of an edge (coming),
but it is recommended to remove these errors yourself in order to avoid problems.<br/><br/>
<b>For Adobe Illustrator users:</b><br/>
I use Illustrator to create SVGs (though any vector editing program should be fine), here are some tips to make patterns that will work.<br/>
If you are starting with a premade vector file, first ungroup any groups, release all compound paths
(<b>Select all + Object>Compound Path>Release</b>), and release all clipping masks (<b>Select all + Object>Clipping Mask>Release</b>).<br/>
Create geometry using the <b>Line Segment Tool</b>.<br/>
Illustrator can help you select all lines of a particular type so that you can edit their color or opacity together. Click the line,
then go to <b>Select>Same>Appearance</b> to select all similar lines in the pattern.
To turn lines and polygons into path objects, select the geometry then right click and select <b>Make Compound Path</b>.<br/>
Finally hit <b>Save As</b> and select <b>.svg</b> extension. I'm using the default SVG Tiny 1.1 settings, but I believe versions 1.0 and 1.1 will work.
