I'm new to the hobby and I discovered /po/ archive. Most crafts seem to be from a site named papercraftsquare, but the site seems dead. Are all the content from this site gone forever? Picture kinda related because I was trying to find a papercraft of this gun from HL2 but couldn't.
What's its site ?
I think ninjatoes has a tutorial on how to rip the HL model and put them into pepakura, idk if it was HL 1 or 2 tho
Use archive.org's wayback machine pre-2019

Hello /po/. Anon here needs a way to reprint a vintage (1998) board game piece. I got some images of the piece and i need to know if someone can create a model based on what i got. Thanks!
you should use a copy machine and then download as a pdf. You can probably send the scans to order some custom stuff from here: https://www.boardgamesmaker.com/customized/custom-board-games.html

As I said 3 months ago, here it is.
thank you OP for sharing these!
Do you know if these models have a particular name in Japanese? I would love to research them.
Those are very nice. Makes me think that doing something similar with one's own drawings would be very rewarding.

Alright I'm starting papercraft again after years. I want to do a specific metal gear papercraft but I can't seem to find it.

Closest I see it this: https://imgur.com/a/5rHgs

However, I'm pretty sure of one unique detail. The instructions require you to add coins due to the bottom of the feet. The art looked official but I'm not sure if it's Rex, Ray, or Sahelanthropus. I had it on my old hd but gave the hd away and it pisses me off since I never backed up my papercrafts.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Awesome, thanks!
Is there any more mecha papercraft?
Here is everything i have. Not sure what it is in it.

Part I
Part II

Almost 5GB of Mechas when extracted.

Just to clarify. You do not need part 2 to extract part 1. Each archive is separate.
Links don't work

I recently ordered some papercraft printouts from Foggy papercraft through Superbuy, and I ended up with this image in my order listed as a "gift". I don't see this particular papercraft of Kokomi anywhere in Foggy's taobao store, and I'm a little surprised that there seem to be "extra gift" exclusive papercrafts. Has anybody seen this papercraft anywhere else? Are there any other known gift-only papercraft from Foggy or other sellers?

Unfortunately it was added to the order after I had already submitted for shipping, so it'll probably sit in the warehouse for a little bit, while I find some other things to order and have shipped with it.

Also if anybody is able to get the baidu link from this image I would appreciate it since I don't know how.

Sorry if I wasn't clear before, the scan code has the Baidu Netdisk logo, so I assume it has a link to a file uploaded there, but I don't know what to use in order to scan the code.
lmao im local guy and i‘m gonna tell you’THIS needs to use Baidu Netdisk app scan code,
hack i made a mistake it needs to use wechat and i‘ll got it out in a second
I can explain this, I've bought from youlingke a lot and some other designers: it seems to simply be a bonus they add on, I don't know if there is a requirement or if they just tack it on big/random orders, it can vary from designer to designer. In youlingke's case, he prints out very simple models like two graphigs or a 2-page chibi model, and on special occasions, has sent me a clear file with a random cover page of one of his models, and during CNY, a fake gold dollar with a design on it. when I bought from papercolors, I purchased their whole arknights chibis set, and as a gift for buying it all, they sent me two random acrylic keychains with the 3D models for the chibis on them.

I haven't heard of this designer, so can you send a link to their shop? also, if you can share the model, it would be great since it looks like this is an exclusive "gift" model.
Yeah, I've ordered from other designers (including this one in the past) and gotten little bonus chibis or extra stand-arm things, but never a whole extra papercraft.

The designer's shop is auto-translated to "A foggy papercraft house"


generally I'm against just giving away models if the designer is trying to make money off of their work, but I feel differently if the designer isn't even selling the model, so I might scan and share it whenever I find some other things to ship it over here with

And it still ended up badly :(
I know the horse is too tiny but I won't do one again until I can get some help cause I couldn'/ finish it properly. I was using A4 colored pages. I'd need a bigger one for the horse. I could try it once more but folding the damn cheval took me at least 2 whole hours.

I lost the link, it was a drive with a bunch of origami books. One of them is this. The resolution is okay. I read it on my phone though, not again.

i think you did a great job recreating pic related
The trick you've missed is the best origamists redo a model three to five times before displaying it .
I think it looks much better than the other attempt, shows confidence in the shaping

And I stupid bros?

I would recommend an OttLite folding desk lamp. It's supposed to be a natural daylight lamp. It's bright, but the other big advantage is accuracy in color. My mom always favored them for quilting n such. Now that won't make the yuzen washi creases stronger or sharper, but it should help. I'd also use a bone folder or a fingernail or something smooth and hard for the initial/base folds where lining things up very cleanly is most important and challenging. Further along in the steps, there's often other points of reference and more use of judgement.

Since there isn't a general thread for origami paper questions right now I'm wondering if anybody knows what this paper is/where to source it. This tastefully lined stuff with the duo colors. This is the Orix from Kawahata's Super Shaped Origami, and I've seen a number of Japanese designers using it. I don't think there's anything like it at Terry's shop
That is Kraft paper.
You can easily find it in craft stores.
The most common brown color (one side is satin), and there are several colors, even with different colors for each side

I use a couple types of Kraft at times, but this doesn't look like any type of Kraft I can find. Origami, rolls or otherwise. If you know this specific product I'd really appreciate a product name or link

I easily find it in department stores and stationers.
I find it in various weights, from 30 grs/m2, although the finest ones need a finish with methylcellulose.

this is a very blurry version
Then start thanking people for their posts and build up your coins, then you can start downloading stuff from there. You have to have so many credits built up to download stuff, that's why I'm not going to keep wasting my own.
Blurry versions are not my problem. I didn't upload them, I just get them from there.
Zhezhidaxue now accepts PayPal overseas ! This obviously means you can skip earning banknotes and buy 1000 for $1 approximately

Do you guys think it would be possible to create a 72 pencil structure with paper, instead of pencils?
I think so, if you have the patience to make so many pencils, and if the paper is resistant. And you would probably need glue knowing paper would fly off easily.
There's a lot of tension in a hexastix so you'd need the paper to be stronger than is feasible.

if you did manage it you could probably do 96 or 120
(pencils aren't long enough for more than 72)
source have made hexastix (with pencils)
