Not American so that trick doesn't work - but I have made F.I.T a good number of times, and a few other wireframes like 10 intersecting triangles and Makalu. But they all have a) not too many units and b) are easy ratios like 1:3 and 1:4 etc. Not some madness like 1.1354453:5.51123121 or whatever bonkers ratios some models require
hi there, the proportion in the dollar bill its 1:(sqrt(2) -1)

you can always grab an A4 paper and make an square. the left paper has that proportion
Thanks for he tip, but like I said before, I have made FIT before
hey guys, when i was a kid, i used to do lots of modular origami. i could find instructions for all the models i could ever want to make online.

but now, it seems like they're all gone. can i still find them for free or do i need to start paying up cash for books?
a lot of the images in this thread end in .pdf, you can open them to get the whole book

I assume step 36 is the problem. The blue line in each picture is the center line (I used another paper for the explanation and only folded the relevant parts to get a larger model for the pictures).

1., 2. From step 35, open the rabbit ear.

3. Refold on the long crease, going all the way up.

4., 5. Now for the tricky part: insert a finger where indicated by the arrow, and start folding along the (non-existent) green valley fold. See pictures 6, 7, 8 for the final position of the red part (perpendicular or so to the center line).

6. When that red part is placed as intended, keep it in place and flatten the rest of the layer (green mountain fold).
Then, repeat on the other side.

7., 8. Result.

As before, tell me if it isn't helpful. That step is not so hard to do, but not so easy to explain.
Could you progress on your fold, or are you still stuck somewhere?
Can you explain what you did for step 19? It got me stuck too...
thank you guys

how should I package origami models such that they don't get fucked in transit by the postal service?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I have sent origami in the past by putting them into an airtight bag, blowing air into that until it's full, closing it very tightly with a clip or something, and throwing that into a parcel with the usual stuff like bubble wrap.
They all arrived without damage.
send origami envelopes exclusively
Pay Tap his ransom.
Is there a papercraft model or something similar of the guy in your pic?

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?

The designer has not shared this model. He has had models in the past that initially were not shared, but eventually did. Be patient, but understand that it may not be shared. Canon Creative Park had a similar model available, you might check there.
Technically, that's the Moon Bus. The trans lunar shuttle is a few posts down.

That's incredible, can't tell you how grateful I am this was included. Thank you.

Orc and goblin. But there are other interesting models. Is it a big problem to give us link for the entire book?
OK, I just registered to Zhezhidaxue. What do I have to do next? When I try to download part01.rar i get this message:

Selling price (origami money) 200
Sorry, you do not have enough origami coins to download

So I need 200 coins to download the book? How do I collect them?
Thank you.

I just registered. I would like to add you as a friend on Zhezhidaxue. Could you tell me your username?
>So I need 200 coins to download the book? How do I collect them?
I suggest you mark down how many coins you have initially.
You can earn coins by
1) visiting the space of other users
2) reply posts
3) send message(s) to others or
4) sharing books or documents.

ps : #4 can make the most coins.
Do I get points (and how many) for sharing photo of origami interpretation?

You can contact me at papercrafttrade(AT)gmail.com if you ever need any advice or help!
Really jannies, you block and delete every attempt on here for anything "out of the line", yet allow shameless advertising of premium papercrafts, in a community that is SHARING papercrafts for free... this has to go against community protocol, or are you just gonna let the thread die off and people starting to spam their paywalled stuff on here?
Don't worry, OP, someone will buy your papercraft...
and post it here for free like they did to me 3 times.
I abandoned openly participating in this hobby when I was getting emails about my stolen pirated papercraft; "HOW DARE YOU SELL SOMEONE ELSE'S FREE PAPERCRAFT!!!". They have an especially deeply bigoted level of stupid because my contact info was never removed from the images.
And none of them every built my papercrafts, if they did they'd post images for /po/cred. They just keep massive disorganized hoards of stuff they never build that they barter with to get more files they never build.
You all may now continue your autistic screeching.

I'll buy it as well, once, and share it on here, no worries. The screetching will go on. And fuck you people that sell papercrafts anyway. Especially on here.

Got it

Yo! The book by itself on the right, are the models on the cover all that it has? Does it include the triceratops? Could you post a list of all the models? Also,
It includes 16 models, the triceratops is one of them. Check:
All 16 models' pictures are shown (and described in Japanese).
Thanx, it was actually helpful & I didn't get trolled. WOW!
I know I don't fit here. Glad it helped.
Already have them all, so no thanks.

/po/eple, I need to make an adult newspaper hat that will last. It's an actual item that will be worn and kept, and I'm thinking of including some kind of headband hidden inside and be more or less traditional folding. The problem is I want to make sure the hat lasts and it won't get destroyed by a little drizzle or anything. How should I treat the newspaper paper before and after folding for best longevity?
modpodge would be my first thought, but if you are feeling adventurous i would try polyurethane to make it extremely durable (and a little yellowish). minwax makes a spray polyurethane which i have used before and i think would work very well in this situation.
but no matter how you slice it newspaper is cheap and the hat is braindead easy to make, so make a few and experiment with different finishes!
also p.s. i wouldn't treat it before folding since anything that would make it seal would crack when you try to fold it. i would just make the hat normally, maybe taping or gluing the folds to make them stronger as you go along, and then spraying or brushing it with whatever you choose after folding it.

me again, after my first failed thread a while back for a torrent I made I forgot to include all the links in a previous archive thread that had been going for 3 years






note the mediafire link no longer works but these remaining links should still work, also throwing in this bonus link from the world works colecction thread

seeding now
I thought I had mentioned before that I had mislabeled the papercraft as origami but I apologize for not saying so earlier.
I seed this 24/7 on my seedbox, but I did some testing and found that I can only seem to get my seedbox to show up as a peer using the .torrent file and not with a magnet link.

Looked through the thread and it appears that the .torrent file got deleted from google drive, so it would explain why no one has been downloading in a while.

Uploaded the file on my seedbox for you anons.
Thank you
Thanks mate
