Ive had this file for a while. I got through the head, chest and skirt assemblies but i have no instructions for the legs, back boosters or weapon. Can anyone help??
I wish I could help. Could you post the files you have already?
Not OP but I reverse searched for this and found it here: http://www.papercraftsquare.com/sd-msn-04-sazabi-ver-4-free-gundam-paper-model-download.html
None of those models can be downloaded.

Ey /po/, one of the new Pokemon from Pokemon Sun and Moon version is Kartana. It looks like this. Can you make it in real life with origami, and if so, how?

cool, an almost five year old thread. i wonder what OP is doing. Maybe he's married, settled down, has kids. or he's lurking in his mom's basement. We just dont know! I hope you are well, OP!! update us on your origami
man this thread is slow yet patient just like origami
Bump because someone on /vt/ reminded me this board exists. I remember playing Pokémon SM. It was the last Pokémon game I was any sort of hyped for on release. Maybe the gen 4 remakes will change that. Maybe I'll give it a shot then. The thread will still be alive most likely. I was also very into origami when I was a kid, but it's been years. I made a frog out of a hall pass for a girl (the note said "Hanky Panky"), and haven't so much as seen a piece of paper since (aside from paper airplanes, to launch from the top floor of the dorms in college, but that barely counts). Kartana was probably the most interesting UB for me until it actually dropped.
Heian period, maybe?
What's the ratio of /po/ posts that contribute vs ones that state how slow this board is?
Most threads are typically on-topic, it's just certain ones like this that happen to get peoples attention.

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?

Those are not from uhu02. Those can be found on many sites
This is insane.
These flagged as damaged files.
Just going to bump this, in case I decide I want to make one of these within the next six months,

I want to do some papercraft stuff but all I have is printing paper and notebook and some pencils. Are there any cool things I can make? I'm thinking something touhou

Speaking about printing papers, I made one out of it like 10+ years ago (pic related). Just recently got back to origami and I wonder what's all the type of papers out there?
I can't seem to find a printer in my daily life that will take all this 300gsm cardstock I have.

Sure thing.

I'm new to paper craft and have no idea how people are supposed to make stuff in the pdf, can anyone help me in what software to use for this?
Pepakura is the main software for papercraft. It shows you how the parts fit together to create a 3d model. If the download included a .pdo file them you use Pepakura to view it.

Note that there is Pepakura designer and Pepakura viewer. Designer lets you edit the parts layout and needs a licence in order to save (it can be cracked with a keygen). Viewer just shows you the model and parts. Most models are unlocked but some are locked by the designer and will automatically open in viewer (there is a way around this if you really need to correct the layout).

Good Luck!!!
thank you but what about the physical construction? I also wanted to know what paper to use and how do they print and assemble the paper?
Ok so, for this model I would recommend 160-210gsm paper, you'll need different colour pieces of paper because the parts do not use ink. A normal craft knife or large scissors should fine for cutting out the pieces. Any liquid glue should be fine, use a toothpick to apply it. Before folding the parts take a pen without ink and a ruler and score the fold line (it makes it easier to fold and looks cleaner). Don’t get overwhelmed by the instructions focus only on the parts you need also its going to take forever so pace yourself and don’t get discouraged.

picrel is a stencil I made using cardboard and freehand drawing, plus applications. How should I improve the rose?

Forgive me if this isn't the right place for this, but I figure 'paper' is close enough to card stock for this question.

Is it possible to purchase card stock boxes, much like those used in old Dungeons and Dragons boxed sets, or puzzles? The kind where you have a two halves, and one slides over top of the other?

If so, do they have a specific name I can search online?

Pic related
Also I realize that they might not be card stock and some other material (Thin card board?). I really have no clue.
You'll have to look at manufacturers if you are looking to get one printed. If you just want a box, I'm sure you could make one or find at a craft store. I'm not really sure what the question is
Most gift wrap & card isles have packs of 2-part gift boxes like that, usualy in white..

Dear god, I thought this thread would die after an hour but I just realized the oldest thread on this board is almost a year old
Be happy you accomplished something?

I know this post is 80% a troll, but if you make something, that doesn't mean you're going to see any monetary return or critical acclaim.

Keep making stuff and make a name for yourself, your stuff won't be profitable if no one knows who you are.

Or come out the gate swinging with a badass book. This'll ikely cost you though if you're not a diagramming master beforehand.
Alright at first I was just fucking around but now I'll just post random shit I make

Hey guys! i tried searching skeleton tutorials for metasequoia, i found one but not for what i am looking for. When I make a skeleton from scratch, the arms move but parts remain without moving or it moves some objects and some not.does anyone have a solution? I hope you understand me!
It's called "bones". So search for "bone commands" "bone mesh" etc. etc. Learn to google the right stuff, it's all there.
Yes! maybe it's Google wrong the term since I'm not familiar with them xD Thanks, I guess
I Google it wrong* sorry double post

What do you guys do with your folds ? I don't have the heart to trash them :(

I've done this before. Left them around in my grocery store, gave one to a nurse at a walk-in clinic. Fun times.

I usually fold my own designs, so I pick the best ones/the ones I like and keep em. Give some finished models and prototypes to my mom, as she likes them all regardless.

I got a display box now that I put models in, as well as some ornamental items I made and the books I've been in.

Update: have given all the folds away except for the little green crane that gives kitty company
I mostly do modular origami nowadays and when I like an unit, sometimes I get addicted to building it over and over, and testing out fun colorings of the finished product, so it's not unusual for me to end up with 4-5 of the same piece before I'm pleased with the final product.

As a result, I have about 60 favorite pieces around the house. The rest I regularly gave them away to my mom, or at work or just left them somewhere in my commute (in the before times).

I can't be the only one who's too dumb to understand origami instructions, I always end up with a wad of paper that looks like a used tissue.
I mean, the instructions posted in the OP are extremely--and I mean EXTREMELY--simple. The only hard part in using this module is the construction, not the folding.
