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.


What paper should I use?

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.

Shit it's been 5 years since I first saw this thread. Takes me back. Different times.

Sorry anons. I've been distracted with other things. The site must expire the link or something. Try this:

Daaaamn, this one takes me back. I remember trying (and failing) to make his D3A model when I was still in middle school. The roster was a smaller all those years ago but it's pretty cool that he's made a few more models since then.
It says file doesn't exist :( Thank you for trying though.

I completely forgot I had comment on this board :o
I know this is an old post, but is there a guide around for someone who doesn't really know how to do any of that stuff? Self sufficiency is kinda based, but we didn't have shop class in my school.

You should ask /diy/

What's a Tessellation?

"A tessellation or tiling is the covering of a surface, often a plane, using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps"

And they can be made of folded paper.

"Origami Tessellations - Awe Inspiring Geometric Designs" And "Six simple folds" are easy enough books to find to start.

Please do share books and patterns.
Here's hoping this goes as well as modular gen!
tessellations are fun and easy to work on when you're waiting somewhere
tessellations rock
fuck the normies
that looks like the wool part of Beth Johnsons Sheep model
my brains cant tell how this has been made

Would this be too much to tackle for my first project??
yeah no, easy, good luck
Well considering what I have read it appears to be high difficulty.

Hello /po/, then. I ate a (delicious) strawberry today and now I want to know about new fruit models in general. I search and search , but the only thing I find are simple 2d models or not very realistic models in general.

Previous thread's life finally ended after 3 years. >>553409

Particularly the part where he folds the corners towards the bottom around 1:20 in this video
When i attempt it the paper just crumbles in my hands, i'm not sure if it's because of the paper (i did just try with regular notebook paper sheets) or if it's because of my motricity issues
Would heavier paper be better or worse for origami?

I managed to fold that snake, but I am not happy with the head and eyes. Definitely will try again to improve the result.
>the paper just crumbles in my hands
Crumbled ? Is it too soft (or thin) ? To make that crane, I think any normal paper will just do. Try with photocopy paper.

if you have the u-form of 52 and follow the mountain and valley folds in 53 you should come to 54 naturally

Do you guys only fold paper cranes and glue Warhammer figures? I've never seen a bookbinding thread here.

Printed and bound House of Leaves. Split it into 2 volumes because I was afraid to work with so many pages at once. Covered with paper-backed vinyl (black) and linen fabric (red), which will probably collect a ton of dust pretty soon.
Couldn't decide how to put the titles on. Should have made a debossed rectangle with a paper label glued inside. But I hoped that hot ink transfer would work. So I made the covers first, then printed the title on ink transfer paper, and found out that pressing a hot iron to the cloth-covered board warps the board due to heat expansion. Tried on small swatches first (picrel). This method won't work.

As I understand it, my current options to put the title are limited to
>linocut transfer
>screening (sponging the ink through a trafaret)
>just print a paper label and glue it on top
Don't have any hot stamping tools to work with foil, nor the desire to purchase these materials.

>Learned quite a bit about processing of scanned images and suitable software
Any software recommendations or other advice on this front?
ScanTailor advanced - for basic oprations
ScanKromsator - very powerful tool, geared towards djvu creation, but can output pdfs and images too
Photoshop - look up how to do batch processing with macros.
FineReader - if you need OCR, can create epubs
I have never been to this forum. I have a bookstore though that I just started and I come to this fucking forum and this is the first post presented to me. I've never even folded a piece of paper before.
Pretty nice.

I've ordered some old Japanese stuff wanting to unbind and scan them. The one issue I've gotten so far has both book paper and glossy magazine paper bound in a thick spine. Hopefully I don't fuck it up... it seems hot air and gently pulling is the only reliable method?

Feel free to post your collections, your works in progress, or your star hordes! You can find lots of inspiration in the old thread (http://boards.4chan.org/po/thread/515222) Remember /PO/ is a slow board so please don't bump the thread. I created the last thread over two years ago. Here's to two more.
