He has a Pentagonal trapezohedron in this book. I though "no fucking way".

So, naively, I start folding. It's a nightmare, but hey, let's fucking go.

first "uh-oh" moment comes with this clear mistake on step 23. The arrow points to the wrong intersection.

but THEN, when finally we're starting to see the the final faces of the model he says "TURN OVER and repeat" WHAT? So far, all the other instructions have been doubled by first ROTATING 180 degrees, then repeating the section. The model has rotational symmetry!! Clearly, in the drawing, you see you're supposed to somehow mirror all the steps you just finished. But the other side is not symmetrical! It's not the same creases!!!!11 WHAT THE FFF
you should git gud op

most of the models in this book are annoying, i get the feeling they mostly exist to prove the point that it is possible to fold them from a single square.

the reference points are not the corner/intersection, but the two black dots. pay attention! the angles arent right if you align along the edge there.

you should just repeat steps 34-42 on the other side, so rotate 180 degrees, like the other symmetric parts. then the model still matches the diagram. he probably used 'turn over' because the model is no longer flat.

Not the wrong intersection. It looks to me like the instruction is to valley fold the point where the little crease meets the edge near the corner (not the corner itself) up to meet the indicated intersection. Making that fold would leave the corner almost on the higher intersection, but not exactly on it. Hope I've explained that clearly.

You should use a picture of Austrian would-be artist for maximum effect.

anybody have a good origami playlist? written instructions are hard to follow
an origami playlist covering all the different models for every single fucking thing? no.
go to yt and search for what you want to fold.
yea ive been using youtube, just wondering if anyone had any playlists with some of their favorite models or something
here you go

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?

Thank you so much for answering my question. I am about to read the source. Thank you.
Not worth it IMHO, a good speed & power combo should do the trick.
Uhh, personally, I'd get a cheap $200 CNC mill off banggood or something and then just attach a $10 drag knife to it.

That way you could mill wood, plastic, aluminium AND have a vinyl/paper cutter all in one.

For the amount you pay for a cricut - I don't see how it's worth it.

I own a couple of 3d printers and a cheap 3018 mill - and now I can make more or less anything I need from stickers, to papercraft to mechanical parts and replacement plastic/aluminium components.

if you want to make circuits, use Copper Tape. and cut it.

Pic related is a pressure sensor I made using a 3d printer with a drag knife taped to it + some simple gcode + copper tape.

the traces for the smaller one on the right are ~1mm wide. so around 40mill in imperial.
I believe in this thread's future

Anyone have a suggestion how to make double tissue with MC not come out so damn wrinkled???
Well, if you iron it or put the paper in a toaster for a few minutes then it will harden. The carbon structure will become stronger and will be able to hold its folds more while also taking out the wrinkles.
can confirm, was working on a long term project and a quick second of ironing has really improved the quality over time.
Should I shower with the toaster as well?

Can someone who is crease pattern expert PLEASE help me with translating this Robert Lang style CP to ORIPA style of his mosquito?
I tried with ORIPA but wasn't able to finish because I don't understand this mixed notation. Its confusing that some lines are marked as valleys and some as mountains, yet they don't always have this meaning because they also represent model structure. It looks like simple box pleating so I thought I could succeed only having in mind |M - V| = 2 rule but that wasn't enough.

This is the original crease pattern: https://langorigami.com/crease-pattern/aedes-aegypti-opus-619/

I heard you like mudkips /po/. I feel like an imbecile and am stuck on step 8 of this child's origami book. please help me papercraft basket weaving forum
Step 8 just tells you to make crease on flaps of fish base, Then you make folds using these creases as reference.

Anyone know what dilution ratio to use for Elmers glue with water to make tissue foil? I tried 3M 77 what a freaking stinky mess. No more of that. Thanks.

I am doing the double tissue thing. At first was a disaster but getting the hang of it. Want to do foil too.
amazon or any art store. Bakery supply place may have it too.
I put about 1:4. I tried 1:2 and it made the paper super starchy and difficult to work with. Maybe it depends on the tissue too, I'm just using hallmark tissue.

In Europe at hardware stores you can get Perfax/Metylan brand (and probably also others) wallpaper paste from Methylcellulose powder.

Some versions also contain synthetic resin, I have a box which contains this. It still works, but the paper tends to become permanently stuck to the surface I glue it on, which is annoying.

Recently thinking about some of my favorite models, and the old sega SGGG models come to mind.
They're cute, accurate recreations of Sega's old machines released online as promotion for the game segagaga on drramcast

They're pretty easy models, but still fun- especially for the old sega faithful. Just please note, you can't download them through the drramcast web browser!!


How do I go about recreating this?

Thank (you) in advance.
there's no clear sign of what ''this'' even is
looks like a screenshot from a movie
it's a genetic model from Shin Godzilla.

During the 18th century there were many way of sealing a letter. Some would do it for love other to show friends and family's they cared. Still others out of boredom. Yet today the art and there technetates are almost gone. Can anyone share how they did it and other technetates on how to close a letter the way they did?

Just google for 'victorian puzzle purse' or 'puzzle purse'. Lots of instructions are online.
