Testing curved folding

No, this isn't the desert at night this is a part of a curved fold I made to see how it works, this one one with a bit wrong exposure setting, but gave a pretty cool look. I am very fascinated by allot of origami artist who managed to make curved folds in their design. However I haven't found any tutorial or any books that explain in which way you can calculate the shapes of these kind of folds and what happens. Because most plain folds that are flat with hard edges can be calculated fairly easily, but these curves are quite a mystery for me.
However I did learned few things by just trying to make simple rounded folds. Actually they are not that hard to fold but just don't know what they would do. But on some parts they are still same to normal origami, however I think I need to buy a cutting plotter which has a pen holder to scorch the fold lines for me, otherwise I need to draw all those round lines myself. I am thinking of several things I could implement this because it looks so odd but very cool.

This is a pop up CD packaging using a well know pop up beak design, this is one of the most basic pop up card design there is.

Printing on sponge

Well am learning this myself though but its quite usefull as it's not a technique that is openly published how to do actually. But today I done several tries and even learned few extra things along the way. But mainly learned this so I dont have to pay stupid expensive prices most of the companies ask when for doing this. However I do need to see how i could cure the inkt cause it need to be heaten up so it won't wash off when there is accidentally get water poured over it.
