hello im a papercraft amateur. can I use normal paper for documents to put this shit together or is it gonna break and I need something thiccer
>>
>>578105
You *can* use ~100 gsm paper (generally where normal paper lies), but yes it would be pretty flimsy. As a general rule, the smaller the scale, the thinner the paper can be.
I'd personally recommend something around 160-200 gsm for something like that; but if it's your first time, you want to see if you want to get into the hobby and all you have is normal paper lying around, there's no harm in using that provided you're careful.
And Anon, please at least try to use proper capitalisation and spelling; you have to be 18 or older to post on this site.
>>
>>578106
I apologise for the bad spelling. I will try to be more mature and careful, so that I am no longer mistaken for a minor.

I never printed on anything but common paper, you can actually make it tougher if you use a gluestick to glue another sheet of paper under the paper with the images. I usually glue 2 sheets under mine. It's kinda expensive, but for me, it's cheaper than printing on harder paper since I don't have a printer and printing colored stuff on hard paper is pretty expensive around here.

So, I'm a huge Warhammer 40k nerd. I know that there is a paper Warhound Titan floating around on the internet, but I wondered what things you guys have made, or if there are any links to make stuff like tanks, flyers, etc.

A friend and I made an entire show out of cardboard. https://youtu.be/huk2zGO-_gg

I know how reserved a lot of people can be to seeing something unconfirmed to be good, but I promise you that if you do take a moment and watch this show, you will not be dissapointed.

There are multiple cardboard marionettes that change the way they are made depending on the necessity of the scene.

The story and writing make a reasonable amount of sense (making room for some rediculous things).

We also created all our own foley, music, and sound design.

In this episode, the robot band lands a gig and have to sell tickets for a crap show nobody is going to come to. But, through their commitment, they push on through and play anyways.

Will their dreams go up in flames?

We even built different rigs for special effects. All sticking to the same theme. I really hope anybody who watches this enjoys it as much as I did making it.

In remembrance of the last paper planes thread, which just so happened to be one of the oldest boards on 4chan that passed away quite recently, this thread will serve as its successor. Hopefully this thread won't be prematurely bumped into oblivion like the last one did.

Anyways, this thread could serve as a sort of "Paper Planes General". Feel free to post your designs, .pdf files, and folding instructions. Anything goes as long as it flies or at least looks like its supposed to.

Remember even the weight of paint on a 36" model war-bird can reach 2lbs so aesthetics always makes a difference to the weight, and thus its flight characteristics.

Since The Mandalorian is pretty good and there's an influx of Yeed memes, I decided to turn the 5-fold Yoda from The Strange Case of Origami Yoda books into Yeed. It isn't much but I'm happy to have him. Any suggestion to improve him are welcome.

Hey, can someone share 3D anime models?
few years ago someone uploaded a lot of them to make them papercraft but, couldnt save any of them
>>
2 of the best artists I've found are Moekami and S.V. Their websites are in Japanese, but with Google translate it isn't too hard to find the download links.

The Japanese Pepakura gallery is also a decent place to find models, as well as Ninjatoes papercraft of the day blog.

Hi, I made Eva-02 figure out of origami parts. I hope you like it too.

It's almost 8 years since I made it.

The paper joints made it vulnerable to stand, but it still maintains in a good shape.

absolutely GOAT. Please post more pics. How many sheets of paper? What size are the papers? This is one of the greatest origami I have ever seen. Please post more of your work.

I make paper statues by folding and assembling parts.
I use specific origami parts which I made and you can find how to fold them in my Channel.

Unfortunately, I didn't record anything about past works, so you can't find the video about Eva 02.

If you're interested in my works, please check the link below.

can you make a tutorial please?'

>>578215
When I made Eva-02, I didn't record anything, so it's difficult to make tutorials videos.
I think I'll re-create the Eva series someday, so I'll try it then.
Keep eyes on me :)

Anyone have some good resources on how to design papercrafts to be easier to put together / easier to understand? I'm talking stuff like tab placement, gluing order, stuff like that. I've checked the sticky but it doesn't really go into depth on these things.

There was a pretty dense document floating around a while ago. It was a 'client handbook' that covered a lot of things you wouldn't at first think of for papercraft like tab order and tab style.

I checked my downloads but it's lost. Anyone else have it?

Same here, did a lot of origami when I was younger, but recently got back into it and it's really calming. I have a lot of extra energy so it's nice to put my fidgety nature into something productive.

What are some fairly easy origami roses (bonus if with stem and leaves) for a beginner-intermediate?
I'm not able to make advanced roses with 300 wet-microfolds and 100 steps, but I don't want to make it too easy either, it has to look like a rose and not like a cube with a couple spikes.

For example this one (first youtube result) is a classic and (I think) easy one that looks good. I'm trying it along with some other variants on youtube, but if you have some obscure wisdom to share here on /po/ we could collect it in this thread.

Other type of flowers are welcome as well, just not too difficult to fold because I'm terrible.

Used this one for a project recently, not too difficult except for the step that sort of wraps it around together. I got it after a few tries though.

Hi Is there anyone who knows where I can find diagrams of figures with wing structures with feathers? I am interested in birds and angels mainly from Zhang Chi, Leo Lai, Xiao Chen, Philip Kuns, Raphael Mausolf, Soma Cruz, and Kei Watanabe among others. I'm also looking for some good instructions on how to interpret CP especially in box pleating. Thank you

awsome thank you all for the help.
Fortunately I found the CP of one of the models I was looking for. It clearly has the same wing structure that Chi Zhang uses, which I still can't decipher, but it's a good breakthrough
>>
The wings of Kaniya's Phoenix are are diagramed in his second book. That'll give you a good baseline. After that it's adding level shifters and layers. Nguyen Hung Cuong's Eagle in License to Fold is also a good one. Both are easy to find.
>>
Yes, I already have both diagrams but so far I didn't do them due to lack of time. Anyway, I still have some information to review about what you gave me. Thank you very much everyone, I will let you know about my progress guys

I might be a norm for not knowing what it is but does anyone have a papercraft for the anime thing in the middle?

If what you're doing is bisecting the angles then that inner most angle would be 11.25 exactly degrees. arctan(1/5) which is the ration of the right triangle gives around 11.31 degrees. This is not a perfect fifth of the length. See pic related.
