How does /po/ design their toys?

I make solder together tin toys. Kind of like papercraft I suppose except more burnt fingers and metal splinters. I print my templates, glue them to sheet tin, then cut/fold/solder as needed. I would like to do more complex curves like boat hulls, vehicle panels, aircraft curves etc, but I am hitting walls with my current and only method, creating a polygon model in SketchUp then braking it down to basic components. A nice curved yacht hull would be a bitch with this method though.

Does /po/ have any protips?

>3D model then flatten.
Precisely what I do, which should have been evident form my OP pic.

I'm certain I can go and just lift someone else's template, but that does not teach me anything other than effective theft techniques, certainly not how to take a rounded shape and flatten it without getting a polygonal mess, nor which application to do it in. I also sell these things, so the design must be my own.

Lurking around on /po/ more over the past week it seems you guys don't really do curves either, just low poly blocks. I have since discovered Pepakura but again, it's just basic lines, no ability for more sophisticated shapes it seems. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what origami is all about and it's like Kintsugi, the whole point is the flaws? (or in this case, working within the limitations?)

Third try before I fuck off back to /diy/ I suppose, as succinctly as possible this time. Consider a banana. It is a curved, 3D shape with no polygons, which, when peeled, can be flattened to a 2D shape. Is there any software or drawing technique that will allow me to achieve the same outcome?
Metal Earth models might help you visualize the flattening deconstruction process.
I understand the flattening process (I also have their Titanic model sitting on my desk at work). I have posted at least three examples of flattened objects ITT. I need to get to the point where I have an object to flatten. It's a design problem, not an execution problem.

I have to assume, since no one has made a single mention of design process short of this guy's tepid response >>597102, that /po/ just works from other peoples designs, no one actually creates anything original here. That's surprising and disappointing but then again this is 4chan, so it should be neither I suppose. I'll fuck off and poke /3/ instead.
Consider using blender to make your models. Importing curves from sketchup to pep is not satisfactory I find. With blender you can add as many vertices you want in a curve and pepakura will HAVE to plot them.

Pepakura is very "you get what you give" and the your satisfaction with the model can be largely influenced by your skill as a 3d modeller. As for linework, I don't fully understand your complaint when you say "just basic lines". Pep is not really a drawing tool, its an unfolding tool. That said you can still edit line thickness and color, and when that isn't enough, you can import the pdf into inkscape and edit it to your satisfaction.

Yes diff cp

Anyone here like Apex Legends? I designed a papercraft of the shield battery. Please try it out if it interests you!

Nice model, elegant design
Looks good. I'll give it a shot some time!
You're the same anon who made the takodachi, right? Thanks for that model!

Started this because I couldn't post it in OP Thread, and it looks like it could be getting close to post limit, idk...

That is awesome!... The must have models from Youlingke imo, are Yae Sakura, Mandarin Dress Ver from Honkai Impact 3rd and Megumi Kato, Swimsuit Ver from Saenai Heroine No Sodatekata.

Hi, where to find the girl template? Is this free or premium model? thanks
It depends on the size of the model. A small model can use normal printer paper and be fine. A huge one would use card stock or even cardboard reinforcement.
It used to be for sale on Youlingke's Taobao a couple of years ago. It's been removed since then though. The shark and its template were released by the designer for free, but the girl only had parts of her released without the texture to serve as instructions for people who bought it from Taobao. If you want the shark and parts of the girl I can upload them, just ask.
parts of the girl it's just hair and legs, isn't it?

I have some papercrafts that are 10+ years old and are still holding fine. Unless it rains indoors, there's no reason for your paper to decompose. I find your typical white glue is too runny. I use a tacky white glue.
Cheers lads.
I just gotta find some firmer paper, my current one did not really work.
Oh, I haven't maintained any of my papercrafts for that long. Doesn't their color fade over time though? Or do you apply some kind of varnish over them?
Color is pretty much the same as when I printed it since they're not exposed to direct sunlight or strong lights. Just has that very fine layer of dust that hard to get off without wiping. I personally don't like the way varnish looks. I would use semi-gloss or matte coated paper for more display pieces. For everything else I tend to use 90-120gsm paper.
In my experience, the ones I make don't look faded even after a year has passed, but when I reprint them I'm able to tell the difference. I think because I see them every day I don't notice the colour slowly fading.

There is somewhere a Mask like this? Or similar to Ariana Grande one?!
Yeah on my old Instagram account but I'm locked out of it so tough
:( Ow

I've looked everywhere and can't find anything the artist is called Ingrid Siliakus she does some cool stuff but wondering if she had any templates or does she keep this stuff secret?

I had it but sadly the external hard drive in which I had it stored got broken,I'm only got left with this picture,and some cut outs that I've re-scanned without success
Sadly, the original site containing the diagrams is down and archive.org has no backup of the pics. :(
Thanks for the info Anon,It's a great loss ,such a fine work
Hopefully someone will come up with it in the future

I have always liked masks and have a small collection but they are pretty expansive. I would like to try and make cheap masks myself so I can customize them. Thing is I don't know how to make those basic carnival-like masks made from paper and glue. Anyone know how to? Thanks!
Sketchfab, download 3D models of masks, unfold them in pepakura. Done
I found this video some time ago of a guy making a bauta mask with paper mache. It's probably not what you were looking for, but I hope this helps.
masks are cool
Aluminum foil on your face, papier mache (use wood glue, not flour paste) over the foil. Sand it smooth.

Just said I will not share it. Some naïve person will but that's not my problem.
Ok then I wasn't asking you then, everyones anon.
I don't think that convention has been held yet, other than anouncement in origami shop it's not on sale anywhere, don't know anybody that has it or that's been bragging about having it, if there's some1 from korea reading this maybe they'll know something
Koreans already have it and scanned it
Koreans aren't the only ones with it.

Anyone have any Evangelion related papercrafts? Or ones you’ve seen.

where do you guys get paper for these? I used to cut it myself, but it was too much work. So eventually I figured I could either
- order some paper strips off aliexpress
- find some wrapping ribbons in store (usually before christmas) and hope they're of fine quality for the stars.
I'm now waiting for christmas season to find more ribbons, so far it's been the easiest way.

I want to do something like pic related. I already bought the aquarium bowl to fill.

Thank you!
I either buy strips of aliexpress or amazon (had a voucher and didn't know what to buy). Most of the time, I buy scrapbooking paper from a local store here (Action) for 70 eurocent a piece and cut them into 1cm strips (picrel). They are only 15cm long, so I have to fold carefully to not waste one or two centimetres, but the paper is perfect.
The stars in the box of the pic above are mostly folded out of that paper.
If you live in Europe, check if you have an Action nearby, they're great

Np! Hope It work
Thank you very much for doing this. They actually look quite good, appart from the eyes really (sorry for the critique, since you are doing this for free as a favour on the board, but I really think it would look better if the eyes were just mirror pasted from one side to another and then just the eye possition changes, so both eyes look the same). But that's a really minor thing and I don't want to sound rude or anything. Really amazing work.

Btw. how come you can do this with such small pitures at your disposal. Is it some kind of a vector thing you do or do you have any tutorial online on how you can even achieve this?
Do not worry! I think if I didn't see it wrong, she has one eye bigger than the other! at least I see that in the original photos

I draw everything from scratch, the only thing I use is the original image to know where each flap goes
Ohh really. By hand? No vectoring help or anything? Sounds really like a lot of work and skills involved. In any case, thank you very much for the shared files and the explanation. Makes me apreciate the work even more :D
Just the image provided by the designer, and easy Paint tool say
