Impossible Shape

This is the most complex error related to fixing the dieline. The error means that Origami has to break the shape when folding it. Here is an example:

Impossible dieline

To fold along both crease lines in the example would bend the top part of the drawing. Origami does not support this, so it breaks the shape somewhere and reports the error.

This type of error is tricky to fix. One approach is to hide as many crease lines as possible, and then show them one by one until the error appears. There should be two conflicting crease lines somewhere. As soon as you see the error, you can decide how to change the crease lines so the shape is no longer impossible.
