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?

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I've been trying to find files for this papercraft for about 2 years now.

The only links I found was a DA Stash link and the original download, both of with are dead, and it's not been archived in the WaybackMachine.

The link is the original download site if it is of help.

Download Site: http://papermau.blogspot.com/2012/08/dissidias-sephiroth-paper-doll-chibi.html

Thank you to anyone who tries to help, I won't give up hope!!
let us know if you find it. I'd love to make those!
Of course :) hopefully someone still has a file of it or can find a link for it
God bless you!


I also have a few others. Just say if you want more info.

Have a blessed week!

I hope you see these.

Any of ya'll know where to find dxf files for things like this? For lasercutting, so I know slightly off-topic, but still I hope close enough to papercraft.

Finished my sister's birthday present. I call it "A sad frog's solo act."
I like it, it looks like he got stood up by the rest of his barbershop quartet
Lmao he is supposed to be a member of a quartet , but I never of the that angle. I made it with the idea that he could find anyone else.
Shoudln't it be, "The Basis* of Folding"
instead of, "The Bases of Folding"

or maybe, "The Basics of Folding".
I actually explain that near the end of the Introduction

Tl;dr the plural of base and basis is bases.

Why is there a unicorn on the zoo
(by the way, good work)
I'm not >>583978, but I'd like to interject

>Korean basket weaving forum
That's a meme, you can look it up instead of trying to brag about your knowledge

>i do not have to respect it
Fair enough, but you also have no reason to read threads that are not specifically about origami, feeling offended when someone posts some other kind of papercraft

>if i was admin
"If I were admin"

Those look great. GJ, anon.
The unicorn was the final one I made, on the concept that if any animal went extinct, who would actually believe they were a real animal. For example, a giraffe is more unbelievable than a horse with a horn.

I'm not that arrogant. Also, thanks for the nice comments everyone.

I can’t really understand what goes where with this one. Can any anon help me out?
Don't know what you mean. 1. the link wornks fine and it lets me download everything 2. the files are all ok. Just follow the instructions of the one you want to make, print it as a PDF file and you can build it.

Any specific thing that you don't understand or is not working for you?

Hi, does anyone have instructions for this crane man? I want to make a bunch and pose them :) Thanks

Diagrams attached. I folded this in 2003 at a convention in Japan.
Looking also at step 11 it seems like 9->10 is just folding the legs upward
Take a square, divide it into four smaller squares, and in each of those squares paste a petal base. Collapsing it should not be hard. You end up with something like a petal base, only with 8 flaps instead of 4 flaps. Two of those are wings, two are legs, two are arms, one is a head/neck, one is a tail. Simple.

I'm interesting in trying to make one of the uhu02 models from 2001: A Space Odyssey

It seems like this guy removes the pdfs from his site after a little while or something? Anyone got these guys around or know where to get them?

Another one
I didn't realise it was that simple. I feel like an idiot.
Thank you anyway, anon.
Finished the tiger. The diagramming is pretty terrible and the resolution doesn’t help so I found the book in Google books
I'm completely stumped by step 17 of the rooster.
These are just normal folds, right?
Scratch that, I figured it out.
My only advice is that the diagram is somewhat misleading. If you move the corner of the last fold you made to where it is in the next step, it'll do what you want with some help.

Does anybody have any info why Pepakura deleted most of its gallery content:




Supposedly they only left "non-coryright" material on and deleted everything. Including some of my files, and even the originally made S.V. papercrafts, for those who know him/her, he makes awesome designs and everything was linked on here on his page and now it's all gone.

They deleted everything probably 2 days back. Any other info?
i noticed that too, some years ago it was easy too find anything, now theres nothing or only to buy the files in etsy, that fucking page is in every search i do, maybe because all is copyrighted, they just left the simple models
Well, I still have some if you need them. The ones that were mine are in my DA gallery anyway, so there is a good chance you find the papercrafts there to download. For anything else you can always aks on the page I guess, since we help each other like this.

But man, this sucks so much. I wonder what happened that they deleted like 15 year old posts and over 100 pages of content on their gallerys, just like, out of nowhere ;/
yes, in therpf sometimes you could found useful or interesting things, i guess some corp wants to sell his official replicas and thats why almost everything was deleted, I saved my favs too, well at least in some places theres 3d files

Someone have these please

What fucking difference does it make to you why I want these magazines? I started this thread asking for these magazines because I don't have them, and would like them. Do you understand now, or do I have to spell it out for you, too. If you don't have them to share, then don't worry about it. Oh, and BTW, they are magazines, not books.
I guess the OP can desire these books/ magazines if they want, but literally all of these are weird Spanish bootlegs of Montroll books (or Montroll/Lang in the case of Origami Sea Life). They are basically poorly drawn, uncredited versions of Montroll books that are readily available elsewhere. So don't get too excited about the models contained within...
Get >>>/out/ of 4chan.
Is full of normalfaggots and trannies.
Uh... ok dude. I was literally just commenting on the content of the books that were inquired about but go off I guess? Or relax a bit maybe? You seem unhealthy.

Maybe i have exactly this magazine in my old house(my parents house).

People have been asking for origami books on here for longer then I have been here. So wouldn't it be nice, to have one thread, dedicated too it?
Could I have a link for "Fold Your Own Origami Weapons", by Mark Bolitho. & "Armed Forces Origami" by Jayson Merril.
Anyone gots Shaping Paper?
Already have a couple of threads in here for that.

Here are a few NOA magazines from that Spanish site and you don't need a password to access them.
