The Orimoto® program
exists officially around 20 years.
No installation is necessary because this is the Orimoto® program
and it is already running on your internet enabled device.
The free version
of the Orimoto®
program is free of charge so you can test the Orimoto®
program first and see if you enjoy folding books. You may sell and display your folded books but not with the name Orimoto®
, these are wordmarks
. You may not sell or give away the patterns created by the Orimoto®
The full version
is chargeable and it is available in three variants:
- with a maximum of 2 patterns,
- with a maximum of 15 patterns and
- with unlimited patterns.
All three full versions run for a maximum of 365 days
, after which a purchased full version automatically reverts to a free version.
The full version for individuals can be purchased via an account
in the free version. If you need a company licence for e.g. a library, a rehabilitation centre, a school, etc., please send an eMail with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org

Since May. 2019, the book preview in the Orimoto®
program shows you how the folded book might look (WYSIWYG).
As of March 2020, the Orimoto®
program can interpret coloured graphics and displays the colours differently.
As of February 2021, the Orimoto program has been modified to allow the width of the strips on the pattern to be increased. This makes the Fore-edge strips book easier to work with.
If you do not log in to the free version
of the Orimoto®
program for 6 months, your account and all your data will be automatically deleted from the Orimoto®
program. You can create a new account again at any time.
