FAQs about origami

Where do I begin with origami and how can I find easy models?

Try browsing the board for guides, or other online resources listed below, for models you like and practice folding them.

A great way to begin at origami is to participate in the Let’s Fold Together threads >>>/po/lft - open up the PDF file and find a model you like, work on it, and discuss or post results.


What paper should I use?

I don't know what to think about this pegasus. It looks really cool but at the same time some of the proportions seem to be way off so...
>some of the proportions seem to be way off
I, on the other hand, don't understand what did you mean ? "Way off" compare to what ?
To a real horse basically, since a real pegasus does not exist.
someone have this book?? , please share
It's cheap from the Origami Shop or free on ExVagos.

Maybe it is on libgen.io
No need; this anon >>569756 already fulfilled OP's, pointing to the other tessellations threads.
This board is more or less a reliable host for origami books, and will be listed in the catalog for some time to come.
I tried hosting a non-origami PDF on /po/ but they deleted it :^\
Try /gd/ next time.
Alessandro beber book is availble on google search

I have origami nature study PDF anyone want it?

we love trump
Very nice!
Great diagrams and great models. I'm pretty interested in the bear as well.
yay thank you sm op! there's so many other books too great resource
generally no. but the final models look really good. i'd say theyre worth folding overall but you gotta be invested in the outcome
Its good in a sense ...going from Puffy 3d to flat models ..Shuki reveals his thinking and construction through the crease pattern..Somewhat of a drill seargant ...he is organisational and a team player..i trust what he has manifested...id put in my top ten of method folders

how the fuck am I supposed to fold an paper dog, do you have a video that demonstrates how to do this?
That's a piece of paper folded in half stuck inside another piece of paper folded in half.
Not even stuck inside. It's glued. Cute for children, but it is an abomination and must be destroyed
It's a computer generated image. No paper was harmed or glued!

Does anyone have a serial for Make the Cut 4.1.0? I just got a Cricut for $600 but didnt realise it was locked behind shitty 'carts'. I managed to find and install older software but it cuts a big X in all designs.
My cricus sits in the office collecting dust, the software was what held it back, I too am interested in this. Tell me OP, what does Make the Cut do?
it lets you print what you want, regardless of what cart you have in it. Essentially making it like every other cutter.
There was a big lawsuit back in 2011 and Cricut sued a heap of companies for circumventing their expensive carts. Because of this, the last version that works with Cricut is 4.1.0
You can find it on archive.org still, and it works fine
try this. it is for 4.6.1 the install file itself that i d/led it spam but who knows it might work. let me know how it goes.

just recently got myself one of pic related, it's nice, i'm making a lot of vinyl stickers and i wanted to cut some printed stickers, problem is even when i put the paper and all in the correct place the machine keeps cutting outside the printed imafes, any tip for a begginer? for i want also to cut some printed papercraft i have to save time (i suck with scissors).
Are you using Registration Marks on your printed stickers and when cutting?

I'm looking for this cute lil Rag Rappy from Phantasy Star Online, but all the downloads are dead rapidshares. I can't find any older SEGA games.

Will someone please post this and other SEGA papercrafts PDOs/Templates if you got 'em?

Ilan Garibi's "Tessellations for Everyone"

Of course it's a little unfair to spoil the launch of a book..in its infancy ...I know Ian himself is very excited and is on Facebook showing his latests favourites from the book
fair enough
Is someone else willing to share some models from the book or scan the book?
Author is sharing 2 chapters via Origami-shop.com:
Tessellations are awesome, I've found to make them useful though you gotta start using a laser or else you will go insane.

That is unless you are using them to keep yourself from going insane, which hey more power to you.

I find I tessellate between the two states.

Template it what I meant (which I just fetched from the site you linked, thanks) and yeah, it's not your fault that the texture is a bit weird on the face. Probably can be fixed with a bit of image doctoring. I might try it out, dunno, if I'm confident I can pull it off.

Do any of you know how to diagram origami? Is there like a graphics package to notate it digitally, or is the only option doing it by hand (a fucking nightmare)?

im doing home work by writing
i think its best that i organize my homework using a 3d cube like this.
unfortunately its only 4x4x4 does anyone have a clear blank template for a cuboid for 7x7x7 and upwards which i can then print out
whats wrong with them?.
Someone should apply deep learning style transfer or something to translate between photos of partially assembled origami and the illustration style of origami diagrams
i'm on it. will start 8 year college education now, intern at google, get on the deepmind team

will report back in 2030 keep this thread alive

This thread is for all the Fold Up Toys projects, whether they be free downloadable paper crafts, building videos or website updates. Rather than trying to put the releases into other threads I figured it’d be easier to keep them all contained in just one.

Also, if you want to share you FUT builds that'd be great!

>kenshin getting deleted from both threads
it's just a request bro

in the thread that OP made...for requests
I've still got kenshin in my little request spreadsheet but it's been really busy lately so I've not taken on many request projects.

I've just put out Lost In The Fold episode 2, in which we explore the work of Walter Joris, take a closer look at the Joris staircase and use it as a starting point to design a papercraft of our own. I'm really, really happy with how both the video and papercraft turned out this week.

Aww hell yeah. I've been persistent because you said you would mention this request in a video but I must have missed it if you did. Now my mind is at ease.

Btw I love geometric papercraft/origami, so i'll have to fold those stairs.
Just released this Sea Search Shark for PLUS people. It uses a bunch of neat paper engineering techniques and was featured in the latest episode of 'Lost In The Fold'.

I used a model clamp to make it look like it's floating/swimming in the product photos.
I made a set of love themed papertoys for Valentines day. I'm thrilled with how they both came together given the tight deadline. The Love Starship & Doubt Infection Fly.
