Curved folding simulation with crane

Hey guys,
I am really new to Grasshopper and would like to build a geodestic dome with some curved folding panels. Now, I would like to create a curved folding simulation to determine the correct folding.

This is the dome:


This is the cardboard model: y-panels that create a dome geometry through curved folding

I tried to create the fold using the crane plugin. I built all the necessary geometries in grasshopper (mountain lines - blue, valley lines - green, boundary - yellow and a mesh - red).


Unfortunately, the crane script doesn’t work yet and I can’t find the error.

Maybe someone can help me or have another solution.
Thanks!
