Assign 004 - Folding paper

So I tried to model this paper fold to make a basic parabola. Based on the tutorial, I was able to get half of it together, but joining them was a bit problematic because it's not planar. I'm not sure how to get this working - maybe make it out of four products to a larger product, instead of two. Also, I'm not sure how to link the dimensions of one part to another - I ended up making 6 individual parts knowing how big they were supposed to be. I'm sure there's an easier way to make a formula for it though...

  1. I believe this type of fold requires the paper to torque slightly. DP does not allow your surfaces to twist and I think this is why it doesn't work out when you put the two halves together.
