Short summary
Origami is a powerful and elegant tool that can be used by engineers to overcome challenges. The shape of the origami is essential to this. We categorize the shapes (fold states) of origami into seven classifications. This categorization method is supported by analyzing 69 origami-based devices for correlations between the classification and the types of functions they perform. These correlations can be used to design and select origami fold states.
