Source files and selected raw data related to the manuscript "Self-folding of two-dimensional thin templates into pyramidal micro-structures by a liquid drop - a numerical model" by Gregory Lecrivain, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Germany, 2024.

1) folder "manuscript",
This folder contains all text documents related to manuscript. Text and final figures are found in the directory.

2) folder "scripts"
This folder contains python and bash scripts used to post-process the raw data and prepare the figures. You will need to install some python3 libraries. Use the following command: pip install pyquaternion matplotlib scipy intersect.

3) folder "figures"
This folder contain information on how to run the simulations related to the figure. More information can be found in the README text file located in each figure/figX subfolder, where X the figure number in the manuscript.

4) folder "src"
This folder contains the all c++ files related to the source code.

4.1)
Prior to compiling, you should have gcc(7.3.0), openmpi(2.1.2), make(4.3), cmake(3.20.2), python(3.8.0), blas(3.8.0), lapack(3.8.0), boost(1.78.0), and git(2.30.1) available on your machine. The version number in the parenthesis corresponds to the one I used on the local HPC available at my institution. In my case, I type "module load gcc/7.3.0 openmpi/2.1.2 make/4.3 cmake/3.20.2 python/3.8.0 blas/3.8.0 lapack/3.8.0 boost/1.78.0 git/2.30.1".

4.2)
To compile the libraries, open a terminal, cd to the src directory and type "make libs". All outputs will placed in the folder $HOME/local. The libraries' tarballs needed to compile the code are placed in the Libs directory.

4.3)
I have manually installed paraview 5.9.1. pvpython is used to export txt data (hinge, drop and three-phase contact line) to vtk format.

4.4)
Open your ~/.bashrc file and add the following lines.
export IGL_NUM_THREADS=1
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$HOME/local/libconfig-1.7.3/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$HOME/local/gmp-6.2.1/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$HOME/local/mpfr-4.1.0/lib
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/microorigami/src #(or whereever, your chosen parent directory is)
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/microorigami/scripts #(or whereever, your chosen parent directory is)
export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/microorigami/paraview/bin #(or whatever path you used)

4.5)
open a new terminal, cd to the src directory and type "make check_library_path". The terminal should return
"library path to libconfig is correct"
"library path to gmp is correct"
"library path to mpfr is correct"
If that is the case, i.e. the paths are correctly set. To compile, type "make main post". Alternatively, one can speed up the installation by typing "make -j 4 main post", where 4 is the number of cpus I use.

4.6)
Help is available in each header file (.h) in the form of doxygen comments. Type "make doxy". The folder html will appear under src.

4.7)
Type "make clean" to clean the src folder

5) folders "caX_sideY_ecZ.zip"
The zip files contains the raw data related to Figure 10. Here, X = 70 is the contact angle, Y = 5 the number of side panels and Z = 0.8, 1.6 and 2.4 the elasto-capillary number. After data extraction, three folders will be created, namely wd/ca70/side5/ec0.8, wd/ca70/side5/ec1.6 and wd/ca70/side5/ec2.4, where wd is your working directory. To convert the data into human-readable format (txt, vtk, stl,...) type "source Utils.sh; ExportScript --verbose --submit" in the working directory wd on the hpc. The bash function ExportScript is located in "scripts/Utils.sh". All other raw data can be obtained by following the commands in the README text file located in each figX folder, with X=1,2,...,13. With Paraview, one is able to visualize the self-folding by loading the stl files.
