OMTO solves displacement objective problems where boundary conditions, force input nodes, and displacement output nodes are specified on a user-defined grid. Given this user-defined problem statement, it determines the fold lines that produce the greatest displacement, in the specified direction or directions, at the specified output nodes. The default setting requires MATLAB's optimization toolbox.
