[Sidefx-houdini-list] paper fold

When setting up a paper folding type animation ( origami-like)
is there an easy way to rotate a primitive or group of points exactly  
around a selected edge??

This would obviously need to be done many times in an origami type  
animation, but a basic example
would be
1) 3x3 poly grid
2) then divide to get 8 triangular shaped polys

3) then be able to grab one of the corner poly and rotate it exactly  
around it''s inside edge, just like a fold.

Seems like there should be a straight forward way to do this but I'm  
missing it.
