Here’s a pile of links.
Anyone have OUSA 2019?
Happy folding
Sorry here

What are we supposed to do with this pile? All of this stuff is easily found on the net anyway.
What you do is not be a little whiney bitch. If you don’t like it scroll on a And stfu
I got your little whiney bitch, faggot. The best thing you can do is shove your little pile straight back up your ass where you pulled it from.

Hey guys. Wanted to ask about papercraft commissions. Do you make them, do you have experience with them, are they even a thing or are people mostly just content with rummaging through posts and find only free stuff to make?

I did find some, but got no experience with any of them (pic of one I found recently, think it's super cool). So I wanted to ask basically if you have any good/bad experience and if you can forward me some good people? Also, how much does an average difficulty papercraft cost to make anyway?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm just really into custom papercrafts as of now, since none of the designs I want are online or even in model form, so I am checking out my options here ;9
Funny that feature Antyyy in your attached pic! I (in effect) commissioned a Ponyo papercraft commission from her, it did not cost much (12 euros or something) and I love it to bits, still have it displayed. She even helped me with some steps. If it's a moderately simple character, then yeah go for it, I've had a very positive experience.
Ohhh! Nice to head that! But appart from her, any other ones that are really good? And I mean, is commissioning papercrafts even a thing, don't know if people actually have a specific character in mind, such as I have many, many XD, that they are actually willing to pay to be made? In FB groups all I see are people nagging about what to share from stolen papercrafts that they want to get for free, so it's strange that it's even a thing. Or only for specific people, I don't know. Maybe actual papercraft nerds that are super into it and want stuff to be done.

But then it's always the problem if you have something in mind that you get somebody that can actually make it justttt the way you want. I can imagine that being the biggest problem. So I am searching for a variety of people that can do that, so I got a pool to choose from really. I know, I am picky about this. I want my 1. commission to be perfect.
Well, I'm not sure what to add other than just go for it.
(I haven't used any other creators, other people here might want to recommend though...)

What can I craft with trash magic cards? They're like playing cards but slightly bulkier and some of them have cool art.
Nothing other than stacking, or throwing away.
Sell them to some kids.
there are some good ideas on this thread >>539829 and the book trash origami has some examples of what you can do with them

Books finally done, hot off the virtual presses.

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
Man this is neat, thanks OP!

I've been on this site eight years but never to this board. I've done a shitload of work on the cricut (cnc machine for paper basically). I'm so entranced by the damn thing because the level of precision it has was totally unavailable at a consumer level while I was growing up (maybe I was just poor :^), I'm only 23). I do most of the designs on my own because I'm fairly good at photo editing, especially precision, pixel level work, which translates well to these projects for a number of reasons.

Do you guys consider it cheating? I can post a lot of my work if not. There's no folding involved, just glue, but sometimes it requires some tricks I consider clever and I'm certainly better at it than anyone on my staff who uses it as well. How does this board feel about this?

Damn; that doesn't look as sharp as your other models. Not bad though. Are you able to smooth it out with a razor like you mentioned?

On a separate note, have you considered making these models hollow somehow to reduce the cost/weight?
Yeah I need to find a way to waterproof the paper. Some photopaper works really well, but I don't feel like buying anything. I may try just gluing some waxpaper to cardstock.

I'm not going to bother trying to smooth it. I let it cure for a long time, so it is damn hard. I could probably reuse the foam from the molds as "filler" to make them lighter...but eh. They don't really cost me anything to make. I have basically an unlimited supply of cement.
bump just cause?
Interested to see laser cutter projects... Did you end up doing any?


Dude this seems freaking awesome! Post projects?

No tips, but for real you're not too dumb, just gotta stick with it and watch some YouTube guides.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I used a laser cutter. It's quite easy to setup if the machine is well maintained. The main drawback is that it don't cut (like a blade), it burns. The edge will have a dark color because of that. Also, for cutting paper, a few tryouts may be necessary to get the right power / speed combo (too slow and/or powerful and you'll set the whole sheet on fire).

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 designed and built a kirigami scale model of Mt. Ranier as a gift recently. It turned out okay, as you can see. I'm not entirely satisfied with the result though. I'm going to redo it in white paper, with some extra length in the supports to account for slop in the folds.

Here is the template. This was pretty easy to make using a topo map of the mountain and Inkscape to convert the lines to paths. I had to take some liberties while cutting it out because some sections were so thin.
>How is it for a first?
Pretty gud.
What type of paper tends to be used in these?

Heavier paper is definitely better. It's not like origami where you will have to fold multiple layers of paper. The entire piece is a single layer and must be stiff enough to hold its shape.

So the tutorial for box pleated cps on the Welcome to /po/ thread is missing it's final step on the origamiaustralia website. Where is that last PDF? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the internet.
Still waiting

Hi guys,
I just completed the diagram for an origam fish I designed, would you like to try it out? It's my frist time doing this, I wonder if the diagrams are clear enough.
The model looks simple, but it can be a bit tricky to fold, especially since the model will not lay flat most of the time.
You can fold it from a 15cm regular kami paper, but it would be easier with a larger paper.

Very nice! Only thing is it's kinda confusing for step 55-56 that you have to wrap the paper around to switch from the colored side to the white side for a fully white side tail

Looks great, thank you for folding and for the feedback!
The thumbnail makes it look like a Chad fish consisting only of a head with an xboxhueg chin.

www.zhezhixueyuan.com -> that site changed from origami forum to a chinese news site since august if I remember right, so it's dead

www.zhezhidaxue.com -> this site was xueyuan's new forum since late 2018, but it's closed since july/august (this year), on the page it says that the site is closed and the "new origami station is under construction, so stay tunned", but been 4~5 months since that and no news yet, I don't have QQ to follow them, but hope back later on

and the other one that I got this Christmas 2013 is www.pindiy.com , it's not really chinese, have many languages, but it's the same template as other forums, the site is more for crochet/knitting and stuff, but got some books that could just find there, it use gold coins as every chinese board. Tell me if you want something from there and I can upload and share here
Many thanks, I going to have a look
Christmas Origami Book 2013
I'm attaching a compressed copy, I skimmed it and what I saw doesn't look too bad, but if you need better resolution, go directly to pindiy (their copy was over 4chan's size limit)
Christmas 2013

No problem


Thanks, but, I'm who already shared this book here


I was just answering to who asked which chinese sites I used and I said the xmas 2013 I got from pindiy and if someone needs any book from there, just say which and I can share, I know it's free and fast to create account, but the coin thing takes awhile if need many books

Sorry if I said something which caused misunderstandings.

What's the word for the kind of art where you make cool paper for things like scrapbooking.
It's like calligraphy but for paper craft. I can't fucking remember the word.

Like the art of calligraphy but converted to scrap booking.
That doesn't explain anything
I don't think that's the right word.
