I'm working on a papercraft project on Pepakura. Valley folds show in light blue and Montain Folds in dark blue in this software.

enter image description here

I was wondering if there is a way to show the angle of the folding edges directly on Blender ?

Thanks :)

Closest thing I know in Blender is using Mesh Analysis from the Properties Side Bar.

Enter Edit Mode on a mesh object, turn on Mesh Analysis, set it to Sharp and adjust the angles as desired.

Have in mind that it can't highlight single edges as illustrated, only face angles. Not sure if it can both show concave and convex edges at the same time.

In edit mode hit "N" and look for the Mesh Display tab.
