This website aims to make it as easy as possible to find new and exiting origami models to fold. Other origami websites and databases often don’t have complete information about a model, are missing images of the final result and cannot be searched in a meaningful way (such as by fold time, whether there are online diagrams available, by model category or amount of sheets). The Origami Database also shows models related to the one being viewed, and has folding tips for the more complex models.

Almost all models are photographed right after they are folded, without extensive sculpting; they represent how a model will look when folded for the first time (because they are).
