We propose zero-area reciprocal diagram as a graphical tool for the design of rigid foldable mechanisms. First, we interpret the meaning of zero-area reciprocal diagram as the second-order approximation of rigid foldability of origami crease pattern. We further show the equivalence to rigid foldability for special cases of single-vertex origami and an origami pattern with flat foldable degree-4 vertices. We also show design examples with approximated rigid folding.
