Can someone please tell me how to make different kinds of round shapes in popup books?

I want to be able to replicate a room idea i created where my character lives in a rounded room.
But any ways of creating round shapes would be very useful.

What are your best pop up designs and templates?
Got the plan for that pic?
Seconding this request.

Only guide I found is in russian; perhaps one could turn this into a PDF plan so it can be hosted here.

Hey guys, I'm looking for the pic related papercraft of Beartic for a birthday gift. I've already found the original source
but the link is broken and I'm not exactly sure how long it could take for the owner to notice my PMs, so I wanted to ask around here if anyone might have this one saved and would be willing to share it with me somehow.
Might as well use this thread afterwards as some sort of papercraft seeking general too so it serves some sort of purpose.

Thanks in advance guys

what's a model that you've made yourself? I (personally) believe that this dragon was my own creation, and im quite proud of him!
What a cute model! And if you've never seen it before, it's an original!

I've had multiple threads over the years of my designs (>>559513), all with some level of controversy, I'm afraid! But this is to be expected. Even if it's a quiet board, it's still 4chan.

Keep making new shit, and only take constructive criticism from these guys. Keep on folding your own shit your own way, and you'll have a whole catalogue for us to admire.
I love your choice of origami paper!!! So colourful, does great justice do that lil dragon.
I've never seen an elephant with wings before, that's tres cute
I'm wary of attributing very simple models to a single person. Mostly because it's very likely (considering the combinatorics of paper folding) that someone else has done it before.

That being said, very cute dragon, and I hope you continue being creative and making things.

hey /po/ with Sekiro coming out in a few days and it's Japanese influence, its perfect for papercraft! With nothing official available, would it be possible for someone to design a papercraft of samurai armor from the game? There isn't much papercraft from any FromSoftware games out there!
not from the game but here is a samurai armor papercraft

Thanks! Maybe something like this could be modified

What makes a good printer, /po/? I haven't bought a printer in over a decade and I want to get back into papercraft. This Canon TS9120 has good reviews for a low price. I figured a printer aimed at good photo quality printing would translate well to printing papercraft models on card stock. Anyone have any recommendations?
6 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
solid advice right here OP. Laser printers do produce ultimately sharper images because well it uses a laser but I doubt you need to have extremely sharp prints at the expense of more dull colours. One thing to add as well is with laser printers they don't need maintenance as often but when they do you may run into some problems where you need to replace internal components using a maintenance kit.

In a nutshell use an inkjet printer it's easily the best choice for your scenario
This, only follow my advice >>571621 if you barely print. I had several inkjet but all of them died because I didn't use them regularly. Sometimes I didn't print for months so the laser was the best choice for me.
The fixed heads vs disposable head also an important question as >>571629 wrote. If you have printer with disposable you change printer heads with the cartridge. But the fixed head could be troublesome is the ink dries and clog it up, it's pretty hard to clean. I tried several times with an EPSON and the result wasn't so good. But if you print regularly there will be no problem.
OP here, thanks for all the great links and advice. I seldom print anything anymore, but an AIO printer solution would be great. I suppose an inkjet would be the way to go. I'll look over the provided links when I get some time.

I have come across the issue of scored folds doing this from laser prints. It really messes with the quality. Is there a way to help avoid this? Any recommendations for scoring tools for very fine lines? I suppose the inkjet toner will penetrate deeper into the cardstock, and perhaps using a lighter paper would help too. Hopefully, I can use a colored marker to clean up the cracked fold joints.
The really bad appearance appears when you fold+unfold many times. In complex models, when is hard or long to ensemble, is more possible you fold+unfold.

I use the back part of an xacto, or the sharp one with minimum pressure, it wil crack but in a nice straight line.

Get the Canon Pro-100. Sometimes it goes on sale for $60 after rebate and comes with paper.

That, plus the $100 ink refill kit from precisioncolors.com will set you for life.

there is not, but you can find a variation in the FINCH, OPUS 439 that is in the book the fold 1, of course you will have to find a way to add the 3 missing fingers

Hi it's my first time using this website so I hope I'm not breaking some rules or anything! But I've been in love with papercraft for the past year so I decided to design my own instructions based off of a friend's 3D model :-)
I hope you will enjoy it! And please share it if you finish. I'd love to see.
It's quite nice to see that there's an active place online to talk about papercraft

Hi /po/

I found this pegasus design by "__ObeLisK" and felt I really had to figure out how to fold it. There are no instructions given so I tried to figure out what the base was and reverse engineer it.
I initially thought of a bird base but after playing around with some paper for a while it doesn't seem to be the case.


I'd appreciate it if another anon could throw their hat into the ring.
It doesn't seem to be any kind of base that most simple models begin
..but my guess was a pyramid base ..and then you told from there but no petal is formed instead you shape body in the centre the wings are reverse folded. sunk in a seam and partially hidden or tucked I to the body...
You can see there are layers on the wings and also the pleats ....he has a Twitter account with many c.ps but known as Ob spend about 45 minutes looking through his account
this was a pretty interesting challenge.
I looked at the sink folds on (the tip of) the wings. I imagined them unsunk and figured out the CP/flap layout from there.

Managed to do it, thanks for the assist anon
I'll try to see if I can come up with a instruction set to fold it without all of the creasing
Otherwise anyone else can use this thread for models they might want some help with figuring out
