Oh no...I've tried folding this pervasive work of paper folding art yet have failed time and time again. Around my area it's known as the "Monolithic rubblestone boulder".

What's your secret?
Happen to have the pattern for that?

How do you guys make your models keep their shape? for example i was folding Satoshi Kamiya's frog today and ended up more like a random blob with bits sticking out than the shape youre supposed to get. What gives maan
I haven't tried it but apparently Methyl Cellulose works great for making your models hold their shape.
I use tissue foil, so my models hold their shape well. Other artists use glue and wire, with clothespins to hold it between longer sessions.

I love the modular polyhedra. I made this one for a date I had recently, and she loved it. I've been doing origami for almost 30 years and the modular stuff is still by far my favorite!
You should make the tajmahal ball, its interesting and unique to most modulars because it uses rhomboid shapes for faces.

Also, the moving cubes and moving cube wall modulars are a nice variation to your classic modular collection imo. Maybe a few different origami magic balls (if you use multiple different squares for a larger colored one it could be considered a modular)

I'm finally done with the big one. I used 5cm2 sheets which results in a sphere of about 16cm of diameter. I pushed the corners in to transform it into a truncated icosahedron.

This is a neat model I found. It has equilateral triangles, so in order to make it, you can take a pic of an isometric grid and print it on paper (thick paper is better) It's the triangular gyroscope module from Lewis Simon.

I’d like to make some origami of all the different image boards out there. Recent news has me thinking more about them. Show me your best clover paper or whatever you got.

Hey, it's me again showing off two new weapons I've made from scratch using cardboard and pictures as reference.
Here's a sniper based on the AWP and a shotgun based on the Ithaca.
The shotgun loads and ejects from the bottom, couldn't figure a proper mechanism.

I only know the pseudo he uses on that site.

I’ve been searching everywhere for this Nintendo Power Giratina model, but I can’t seem to find it-the only major link is dead. Does anyone have a copy?
here is a scan i found of it. better than nothing i suppose.

This will always be my favorite thread on 4chan.
this is possibly the saddest possible outcome of a thread
Here OP, I check /po/ from time to time and it's really nice to see such helpful thread still exists. I have been able to update and use the new versions of pepakura thanks to the information shared in here. It's like a time capsule that takes me back to 2016!
Thank you.. you re genious.

It's worked good.
