FAQs about origami

Where do I begin with origami and how can I find easy models?

Try browsing the board for guides, or other online resources listed below, for models you like and practice folding them.

A great way to begin at origami is to participate in the Let’s Fold Together threads >>>/po/lft - open up the PDF file and find a model you like, work on it, and discuss or post results.

Just thought of something: someone should make a schematic to fold a literal crumpled ball of paper. Like crumple a piece of paper, figure out all the necessary folds, and replicate it exactly.
that's been done dozens of times
cute post anon

Posting in a historic thread
same I guess
fucking reddit go back

Hi /po/,

i just got in to folding last week and I have been enjoying it greatly. I figured we could start a thread where beginners post their work, and people make pointers that might be obvious to the experienced but helpful for the tyro.
Here is two tomatoes and a foxbox I made. Is there anything I should be paying attention to in my folds?
Also, some reccs for harder projects that might be within my ability range would be nice! Thanks :)
I might help if you would load your photos right side up instead of sideways.
Man, I wish My origami looked as good as yours when I started. I would recommend getting a 300pack of origami paper from a craft or hobby store. I would recommend watching you tube videos on origami or go to http://www.origami-instructions.com/. You have picked up a great hobby and I can't wait to see more from you. Happy folding!
it was from my girlfriend's iphone. i dont know how.... im sorry master i have failed you. >>571241
Thanks! I got a 400 pack off amazon, but I can't really tell the difference in weight between it and printer paper, so I am looking for a nice place that I can look at the paper in person. I have been really liking Jo Takashima and some mexican woman that I cant remember the name of on youtube.

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.

just recently got myself one of pic related, it's nice, i'm making a lot of vinyl stickers and i wanted to cut some printed stickers, problem is even when i put the paper and all in the correct place the machine keeps cutting outside the printed imafes, any tip for a begginer? for i want also to cut some printed papercraft i have to save time (i suck with scissors).
Are you using Registration Marks on your printed stickers and when cutting?
No, I'm testing it, I want to adjust it so I send the print then cut the design, been making a shit load of decals tho, got my laptop a really nice overlord decal, my bro cut for his car a Captain Harlock's nazi plane skull, having a lot of fun with this one and for the price it's nice overall
If you're not using Registration Marks, which I advise you use for the most accurate cuts, then make sure to check the following:

1. Go though the calibration process.

2. When you print your stickers, make sure they are 1:1 scale and not in any type of zoom, like fit to page or width.

3. When printing and setting up the cutter, make sure all the measuring units are the same or equivalent. Silhouette app likes to place measurements in metric mm, while your art program may be in imperial inches.

Hello /po/.

This may be a kind of a weird thread here, but I think that if anyone can help me, it is you guys.

I am an entomologist, and I need a reliable way to make beetle cards, just like the one pictured here. These cards are used to mount really small specimens, and are used in three sizes, ranging from 5x9mm to 10x20mm.

I thought about using punches or paper cutting dies, but they can't be made with these little round corners. My currently idea is to cut it with a guillotine, but I have not found a way to round these corners (radius of around 0.5mm).

Can you guys help me?

Thank you very much, and sorry for being kinda off-topic.

Have you looked at corner rounders from scrapbooking craft shops?

Here's a photo of a cheap one purchased from a China based eBay merchant sent postage free for a couple of dollars to Canada.
This thread still has a birthday hat and I want to preserve that fact.
.My face when i come on /po/ and an image of one of my specimens is on the board....
Anyway British Entofag here,
I buy my cards from the Czech Republic, the one pictured is from a site called Paradox, even after postage i think they are affordable, high quality cards at standardised sizes.

Considering The amount of time spent preparing specimens, its not really worth spending all that extra time trying to save a few pence
An alternative to paper or card which stains and tears.. is to buy polystyrene which is available for displaying a nature gallery...
Google A5 polystyrene sheets or A4/A6 Plastisheets..enable your location and results should not be too costly
Shit, what are the odds...

Big if true.

I'm looking for this cute lil Rag Rappy from Phantasy Star Online, but all the downloads are dead rapidshares. I can't find any older SEGA games.

Will someone please post this and other SEGA papercrafts PDOs/Templates if you got 'em?

here's a model rip, doesn't look terribly difficult to turn into a decent papercraft. Personally I have zero experience in making my own templates or using Pepakura Designer or editing 3D models but i'll report back here if I ever do learn how.

Hello. Can someone help me understand this step? I have tried multiple approaches and nothing I do seems to work. The model starts at page 69 of this ebook:

Thank you very much if you can help.

Hope this helps. I ended with excess paper at the far edges, tho.
Just noticed they're out of order. Look at them from the bottom to top.
anon this looks like a waterbomb...
please tell me you aren't making a waterbomb -.-
