We prove that two polygons A and B have a reversible hinged
dissection (a chain hinged dissection that reverses inside and outside
boundaries when folding between A and B) if and only if
A and B are two noncrossing nets of a common polyhedron.
Furthermore, monotone reversible hinged dissections (where all hinges
rotate in the same direction when changing from A to B)
correspond exactly to noncrossing nets of a common convex polyhedron. By
envelope/parcel magic, it becomes easy to design many hinged dissections.
