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 :^\

let's start a new thread in supercomplex origami since the previous one has been archived

>have to sort one by one to make sure they aren't already in a book.
I wouldn't bother if I were you although it's very kind of you to do that. I'd simply upload all those things to Google drive and share to every and anyone who is interested. Let them sort things out themselves.
>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

It's gonna take a while either way. The torrent is only seeded during the day but at least it's like 8 times faster
>It's gonna take a while either way.
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 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?

tissue foil sucks don't fall for this meme anon.
double tissue is based though
okay, so tissue foil, and double tissue are two separate things. Got it.Would you mind giving me an appropriate use for both so I can better understand the differences? I think the frog looks beautiful and has an almost beetle like luster I find impressive.
Well if you look at Mariano Zavala’s YouTube channel he makes most of his complicated stuff with double tissue. I haven’t folded with that yet, but I can tell you that tissue foil is very malleable and lets itself be sculpted (which made it appropriate for this animal), but reversing creases is sort of a pain, so pre-creasing will not be pleasant. With the bought tissue foil the problem was alleviated, but working with self-made tissue paper is tiring even for relatively simple models (Golden Retriever by Satoshi Kamiya, Murex by Robert Lang).
You should read up on OrigamiUSA’s origami paper reviews, they have one for tissue foil/sandwich paper but not for double tissue last time I checked.
Look at >>564679, it looks like it’s made of tissue foil and it looks excellent.
alright thanks for the advice. Im really new, and a lot of my apprehension jumping into this hobby was hating the look of a lot of the paper. Until recently I didnt even know double sided designs existed, and always found the expose white folds to look terrible. Some models really seem to benefit from a classier looking paper. Looks more like finished art and less like a childs creation. I am an absolute beginner so I'll be looking through all of that which you suggested.
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.

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

it's just for the birthday, but old posts that were around during a birthday sometimes break and show a hat for no reason, possibly if the hat is cached somewhere in your browser
The hat is a form of a heptagon when formed correctly...ie...the fractal of equal units accumulates into a rose in the centre
Yo Nepafarius, why did you throw the >>564788 mouse diagram in the bin? Now I can’t download it.
I honestly don't know why that happened. I just removed it from the trash, see if that worked.
It still doesn’t download and displays the same thing.

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

>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

Kite and fish bases were the first things I tried, as the site mentions 22.5, but they don't help with any reference points. If I just fold the square on the inside of the blue lines here, I can crease everything, it's just grafting on the excess I can't work out.
You numpty the golden rule of origami is every line relates to where it meets an old crease ..or parallel to or half way between or a section of a plane...so as a newbie look at the half then the third then the square of....where the bisector or plane sometimes 80% hidden is line with the start..
I know the logic of crease patterns, I have solved several with no help and no problems through various means of trial and error.
Look at the image I posted - the rabbit ear you suggested doesn't provide any other references that would naturally lead to the next one. Nor do they intersect with thirds, quarters, fifths, sixth, sevenths, or eights. So at what point does your suggestion provide a solid reference point for the blue lines in >>568303 ?

If you're still so cocksure I'm not getting what you're saying, show me on the crease pattern.
impressive !

i know this is an old ass fucking comment but im gonna reply anyway because i think its useful general knowledge. Why could you bother doing that when you can just hit prnt scrn? If its a huge image I guess you would need to manually save it, but any sticker should fit with the size of your monitor?
Surprisingly - and this is common knowledge for any /po/ anon who are used to handling pdfs, constructing templates, etc - you need a high resolutions for decent image reproduction in print.
About 300 pixels translates to an inch in print. But actually, much better printers that would be used for creating stickers, 500 - 700 pixels for an inch would be needed.
So yeah, really a lot of the times the resolution of the images are the size of a monitor or a bit bigger.
well... i have been scanning drawings into my computer using a printer, and i have heard scanning at anything less than 300dpi is a waste for that? So I guess that sounds vaguely consistant somehow with what youre saying except the process is backwords? I find computer resolution to be really arbitrary and nontangible so i cant wrap my head around this stuff too well.
