Hello, Alex here from Fold Up Toys. A little while ago I did a request thread on here taking suggestions and turning them into downloadable paper toys for a video series. I had a lot of fun making the models you were interested in.

I've just finished all my major projects for the year and wanted to try this again, but this time work towards a larger overall goal. Putting all the toys based on the requests into a self-published book.

I'll still make the models available for free download, but this way I can wrap the request project up in a neat little portfolio friendly bow.

So, tell me what you'd like a paper toy of, and if I like your suggestion, I'll make it. The OP image has some of the models I designed from the last thread as examples.

Request Update #2 - >>569172
These little buildings are a real treat to work on. I've finished 8 so far along with some little extra detail elements. I was originally planning to juts make one toy per request, but as usual I've run away with the project.
Here's my idea so far taking the requests from this thread into consideration. A simple A5 book filled with little buildings, some of which are half destroyed. The book would also include two giant kaiju inspired monsters fighting in the middle of the city. The book would come with everything you need to make a distressed cityscape.

I have some old concept art for a build-able kit called "Kaiju - Collateral Damage" somewhere, I'll see if I can dig it up and use it for this concept.
Sometimes its nice to work on something simple and easy. These look good and fun.
The monsters are a good idea, but you could fulfill 2 request by throwing in a super robot. Something in the classic anime style like Gaiking or Mazinger (not Pacific Rim realistic type).
Would love to see a heavy gear or armored core mecha papercraft
so did anything even happen in this thread or what?
For a while things were bumpin. I guess this time of year gets everyone all caught up on pther things.

I made this origami tree frog by Robert Lang (Origami Design Secrets). I am satisfied with how it turned out, but, since it is for a gift, I would like it to look as good as possible. What recommendations do you have?
14 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
people like tissue foil because it's easy to shape and fairly thin so can be used for models that have a lot of layers. it can also be used to make double colored paper very easily. but. reversing creases sucks, so anything precreased then collapsed won't always want to follow the creases you made (reverse folds, open and closed sinks etc), its weak and will tear easily (unsinking is hell), and any tiny little mark you put in it will stay there permanently.
double tissue is also very thin and suitable for complex models, but it's much stronger and is more willing to follow existing creases. making double sided paper is harder, shaping is slightly more effort (but if you can make the paper you can shape with it since you'll have the MC). i've rarely had double tissue fatique and tear unless I pulled it too hard.
i think tissue foil was the hot shit until double tissue came along, but some people are stuck in their ways and continue to push it. most complex models are some kind of single/double/tissue paper these days. imo you should try a lot of everything, as something i learned was there's no perfect paper. you want to go as thick as your model will allow coz it makes your life easier, and every paper requires different manipulations to get the most out of. i still think tissue foil is shit though.
Alright well thanks for such a lengthy writeup.I appreciate it. As someone who has only ever folded the stereotypical papercrane from printer paper, is there a resource I should be going to, to educate myself? This board strangely seems to have no sticky despite having a lot to learn.

Lastly, can you suggest a good place to buy origami paper from? I live in america, so i figured art stores like micheals or hobby lobby would be the obvious place to look. But is ebay or amazon good as well? I found some really interesting looking origami paper on amazon, but a lot of the coolest paper had constant criticisms of overpowering chemical smells coming from them.
Yeah it tissue foil. And thanks for the vote of confidence, bruh.

I am one of those tissue foil apologists. The reversing is a bit tricky, but you get used to it. Also a lot of the lines can be buffed out and become barely noticeable, though some are easier than others.

I usually put the order of paper as construction<printer<kami<tissue foil<specialty papers (double tissue, washi, lotka, origamido, etc).

I like tissue foil because it's a bit easier to make than double tissue, and despite it's flaws is still infinitely better than kami you'll find in hobby shops, and cheaper than specialty papers. I use Dollar Tree items and make several large sheets at once
origamishop.us my man. I recommend getting a discovery pack if you really dont know whats around. by the way the tissue/metal foil here isn't quite the same as tissue foil people always talk about, it's way stronger and thicker and less useful for very complicated models with lots of layering (but the 'sandwhich foil' seems just as shit). they also don't sell premade double tissue, it's something you gotta make yourself.
i learned more about paper as the models i was folding required it. i think tant (even though it tears easily) and biotope are good starting points for beginner > intermediate models, and much better than printer paper or kami.
Speaking of the thing Origami Shop calls tissue foil, I find it appropriate only for intermediate and high-intermediate models. I confidently attempted Tadashi Mori’s Darkness Dragon 2.0 (because ‘well it’s expensive specialty paper and it says it’s good for complex stuff, so it should be fine, right?’ and I absolutely do not recommend folding models of that caliber with it. Looking back I should have chosen Jo Nakashima’s Devil Dragon 2.0 instead (his instruction video used the exact same size and colour of tissue foil that I had).
Also their ‘sandwich paper’ (the real tissue foil) is decent.

let's start a new thread in supercomplex origami since the previous one has been archived

>open it with a torrent client
Oh, thank you sir. This "torrent client" is totally new to me. I just searched a bit of it and it seems like a software, is it ? So do I just download a "torrent client", run it and paste that "magnet:?xt=urn:btih:8490cf......" in that software ?
There should be a button where it lets you paste the magnet link

Don't take that "time left" seriously. It can be 73 hr at a point then 1 hr in next second. But it takes a while is true. What's your internet speed ? I have some 40G of backup uploaded to a Google drive and it took me about 20 minutes.

I said if I came up with anything new I'd share it with you all.

I'm still focusing on drawing, but at the moment I am waiting on books, and these are related to what I want to draw in the future anyway.

I've been focusing on minimalism, and have been trying to come up with a couple.

I decided not to post on the old thread. I don't really like having to slog through petty arguments and people being rude to one another just to find the one or two people who are actually saying anything civil and productive.

I don't know if I'll share diagrams for any of the models I make next Any fun I had sharing has been spoiled by greedy spoild people. I always ask for people to post their finished products, but so far have only ever seen one. Doesn't feel like I'm getting anything back especially for a community that seems so eagar to have every diagram possible.

Anyway, this will probably serve as an update thread for people who don't follow my Flickr.

Here's a minimalist gray fox

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.

Hi /po/ erm so as a grand gesture I'm going to send the girl I love a gift box for her birthday - she lives in another city, she is back with her ex after telling me she doesnt have that "spark" with me.
I have all the finer details planned (gift, letter and asking her professor to call her into her office before her birthday) but I want to know if there are any ways to prepare the gift box - other than what I found on this website.
Youtube hasnt proven helpful.
Thanks /po/ and yeah I know it is hopeless. But I'll rahter go down swinging than watch from the sidelines desu.

That box honestly came out really nice- what the hell. I rolled into this thread beyond late. What the fuck happened, OP?
what happened anon? i really hope you didn't give it to her.
I know you've probably committed suicide by this point over 6 months ago but you need to know that your girlfriend stopped loving you a long time ago and since she was 15 she had been fucking 10 dudes a week without stopping and she's probably fucking someone right now both as I type this and as you read this
I once wrote a poem for a girl that dumped me. She laughed. I felt awful. Now I have a new girl that isn't a giant cunt and life is great.

Move on OP.
There's at least three great humble girls you passed up on while getting scorned by this ex ...she literally thinks you're too nice

Does any extremely kind anon have the textures for stalker ammo boxes? I can't figure out how to extract them from the SDK.
No but they're actual ammo cartons used irl - you may be able to find good enough pictures or even the real cartons to make your own from
Look here: https://forum.facepunch.com/f/fbx/pryc/S-T-A-L-K-E-R-Model-Packs/1/

If the download links still work you should be able to find them in the prop pack. Maybe look in this thread and you find more. Gl on your search
Thanks anon, it appears these have been extracted in the Source engine format. I haven't been able to find the ammo in the prop pack.

hey /po/, does anyone have the link to this folder?


it was shared on some archived posts and has worked fine until today, now it just gives me a 404 whenever I open it. It disappeared from where I saved it to my drive too, so I'm expecting the original author probably got rid of it or something
Would help if I knew what it was..author and subject..
It would be filed and given its own folder
oof, I shoulda been more specific, and pic unrelated

it was just a fairly large folder full of files named by author with their respective works inside. Had pretty much everything I ever needed in it, even obscure origami artists who only post their works to Flickr and places like that. I think the only way to find it now is if anyone else has it saved. I remember the drive folder was unimaginatively called "origami" and was a read only I believe
Go to your drive...empty bin..go to settings clear cache ...go to Google store ...update drive...go to drive menu..click shares with me...sometimes when apps are uninstalled the links set back to default and it shares links could be set to timer....
If that's not successful use reverse photo finder with Google to guess what the c.p is

Ey /po/, one of the new Pokemon from Pokemon Sun and Moon version is Kartana. It looks like this. Can you make it in real life with origami, and if so, how?

>Also, printed details are not allowed.
You're wrong, you can absolutely use more than 1 sheet and use printed sheets and still have a piece of origami so long as they are attached by folds/tucking and not any other material. Not papercraft.

Only if you're a faggot.
This person is closest to being right but is still wrong.

For those that don't know, many of the early classic origami models (such as the goldfish from the kabuto helmet or the frog that you have to split a flap to form the legs) use cutting and gluing and that is perfectly ok. Yoshizawa-sensei used both cutting and gluing and nobody here is/was/will be a bigger origami legend than him. A lot of the greats and even people on this board utilize mc to shape their models even though mc is a glue. Satoshi Kamiya's Ryujin has a wire armature inside to help it keep its shape. Even the most elementary origami book will probably have the dog/cat face model with drawn eyes. Sorry to burst your bubble, but all the greats "cheat" in origami in some form or another. Has anyone really been far even as decided to claim that pic rel, an image most of you if not all are familiar with, isn't origami?

Hi /po/!
I know that everyone of you made this and maybe there was a lot of threads about it, but it is my first papercraft and I want to ask if you can give me some advice about it, like what to do to make it easy or where to be careful.
I made 1 gear and it was hard to glue the teeth, but it looks good
thenk you!

So long time ago I made cs_assault out of boredom.
I bet most of 4channers have played cs 1.6 once in their life, so I guess I don't need to explain a lot of it.

In the next link there are more pics

And sorry I didn't toke many. I accidentally broke it while lifting it from the dining room to my room....

Nah, it's literally a default level that comes with the game.
I used Valve Hammer Editor to know the 3D shapes of each building/wall/floor and Wally to extract the textures of that level
Then I just transformed the pixel values to centimeter values, so I know which size of paper i should print for each piece

I spent 80~100 euros (in Spain that's quite a lot, since a nice meal in a good restaurant is 15~20 euros)

Honestly I consider myself good at recreating stuff as it is (like making maps), but terrible at making something by my own

And nah, it ain't too late. A lot of people still play cs 1.6
And CS:GO is still one of the most played games in the world
to add to what >>569916 said, CSGO is now F2P
80 euros? What did the cost go into? The programs you used? Or just the materials to construct it? It looks rather large even if there is no reference object for scale. I've wanted to recreate some sections of old videogame maps myself, and bring them into the real world as dioramas, so this is really interesting and impressive to me.

Thanks for the headsup, as a kid all we had was dialup and a shitty computer (technically we did have one, it just was a piece of junk) so stuff like CS was totally unattainable for me.
yo this is sick.brings me back so many memories
