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?

do you have have a pdf of this my computur does not like pdo files and yes i do have pepakura

How do I make a paper model of this without pepakura?
Download a model of the car, download the latest version of blender. There's a plugin that emulates pepakura, it's called "export paper model".

You have to perform a squash fold as you’re doing it. It’s probably the single most annoying fold in the entire model.
You’re actually not too far off. You’re on the right track there. It’s just a pain to get the paper to pull apart. Sometimes I cheat by sticking a thin needle in and gently coxing the paper to be convex on one side.

I accidentally clicked the banner for this board but I respect your passion
Good work
Out of curiosity, may I ask you if you got any paypal donations from the book?
It's probably quite rude of me to ask and I perfectly understand if you don't want to share this info.
Nice dude
No problem dude, thanks!

I haven't checked any other boards in a while, where do you typically frequent? And thanks for trying some of my work, although if you're just starting out even the initial models are kinda difficult. The first few steps are precreasing for a preliminary base. Many of the models in the book use it.

It was more obsession than passion by the end lmao. What board do you normally use?

It's no problem. I got three. It was enough to buy a two pizza special, so that was cool. My sister also gave me money, but it was actually repaying a debt.

Thank you!
I don't know why Google keeps unfilling the name

I can't believe this thread is still alive ... I still have the same masks that 200 years ago, I probably bought the new masks but if someone has new masks that they want to share it would be great...
If you want some of the masks I will gladly share them, just send an email

Anyone have any idea how these book origami things are being designed? Just screams computer to me, but not sure.
The concept is pretty easy: you can fold the corners of every page to make the edge "shorter". This means that for example the eyes need at least two pages (one to make the head above and one below), so if you have holes in your design you need to alternate the pages.
With some careful planning it is not so hard.

In any case, yes, there is a software (can't remember the name) that takes a black and white picture and outputs the folds needed.

On a side note, I think the image you posted was made cutting some pages (notice how the eyes go straight inside, normally you do these with 45° folds only)

Hey guys I forgot to update this thread but be sure to check out the website, there are more than the ones shown here. Just released this one recently.
Sorry for the bad picture, the room where I used to take them has changed and I'll need to retake all of them.

Oh hell yeah. Looks amazing, OP.
It's amazing how the low poly makes for perfect origami models. God I love Spyro.

Just released another one, this time it's Bianca.

Oddly enough this is probably the hardest model so far, so be sure to fold most of the fold lines and feel free to resize the model if it's too small for you. I've also included optional 2D eyebrows if you want to keep the original size but they are too hard for you (shown on the picture).

Have fun!

Found this. I don't have instructions, but it looks fairly straightforward.
sorry, went through all my archives and evidently, I only got the first page.
It's strange to look at this thread and see posts I made a year, two years and even three years ago.
I hope that this thread is alive for its fifth anniversary.
