I just realized Hi-chew wrappers are squares.

What are some good models for really small sized paper that I can fold while eating my weeb candy?
crane :l
a frog with mamba
Kawasaki rose

Anyone got the diagram for this?
It's from Creative Origami by Makoto Yamaguchi

I made the snout far too short so I went with the flow and adapted it into this Iggy-looking chihuahua thing instead.

Used one leg peice and no body peice, so I saved on 2 pieces of paper I guess.
Thanks man, im kinda new to origami and i want to make this for my GF but i keep fucking things up, i guell ill keep practicig
It's an okay beginner's fold, use a big piece of paper if you're having problems with the fiddly bits.

Hi /po/!
I know that everyone of you made this and maybe there was a lot of threads about it, but it is my first papercraft and I want to ask if you can give me some advice about it, like what to do to make it easy or where to be careful.
I made 1 gear and it was hard to glue the teeth, but it looks good
thenk you!
Definitely *not* recommended for a first papercraft. Try something easier first.

mmm... well, I started
I made a mistake with paper for the little one, but the big is good
I can't stop now, any advice?
i made this, almost a year ago. hmm, it super hard, but easy enough if u have enough patient. gears need precise, try to dont make it loose out too much or rear too much. pay attention at gear 7. dont use glue if it have to, some part dont have glue. and find all things you need to this first. 6mm straw to make a cylinder for rotate, exaclty 6mm, like coctail straw with long curve strip, i use that. and a rod and tube matched to make the Rotary axis.
diameter can be diffirent a bit, depend on what u can find, just adjust the hole in Gear 7 to fit the rod and tube u have. and good luck!! any question , just ask on this thread.
for glue, use PVA glue for a good timing. u need a little time to adjust the teeth to make it perfect. dont use any kind of quick dry glue, unless u are skilled or u will lose the whole gear. follow the instruction, glue couple teeth at a time, hold steady and wait to dry, then continue
>pva glue
Oh Lucky me! I use that because it is the one that I have at home.
I will use the McDonald's straws, it seems that they are the exact size
I had problems with the teeth in the gear 2 and I don't know if I should make it again or try it like that (the hole in the middle is a bit deformed)
Thank you very much! I will ask more things

Hi /po/, first time posting.
How to bend paper?
with your hands m8
Quality thread to follow

Start here

I asked before, I still don’t know.
Use your X-Acto and start by gently applying it to the paper

It's mostly chipboard, hot glue, and paint

It's a sewer full of bugs and failed experiments

Swarms of bugs, rats, and a giant mutant squid

I flushed them in, had a wizard open the floor below them and drop them into it

The website is to showcase some of my models as well as act as a free resource. What should I add to the site to help fellow enthusiasts?

What more should I add to the website, and a general critique of how it looks and feels please. I'll be greatly appreciative

As for the look and feel, I like it. It stands out from the abundance of origami websites stuck in 2000, while not being too bloated. The fact that a ‘single sheet’ category exists is quite weird, but I guess it makes sense. I took a look at the models and your Instagram and I really, really like them. What model is the one on the banner at the top of the page?
Also you could specify the book where the model is taken from, like Robert Lang does on his website, or a link to the instructions if they’re available.

Works well on mobile! It feels more like a portfolio site so I don't think you need to add more in terms of resources/patterns.

The questionable photoshoping don't really do your designs justice though.

Thank you for sharing what you thought of it. One big reason I made it is because 90% of Origami websites I've seen have really clunky and old interfaces. I wanted to keep things simple, but also elegant.

That's an excellent idea. I'll look into doing that for the models.
I'm lad it works well on mobile. While my heavy focus was on desktop(It really shines there), I know that most people would use it on their phones.

While it has a showcase of models I made, and I will keep updating it with things I fold, I want it to have free resources and easy information for people who like the models they see.

I thought about including a difficulty rating but that becomes quite subjective, I've found.

>The questionable photoshoping don't really do your designs justice though.

Hahaha, the dodgy photoshop is something I knew someone would pick out. Honestly, after spending weeks on it, I skimped a little over there.

Both former managers of the /po/ team in a certain 4chan soccer tournament that must not be named have retired, and this poll is being made to ensure /po/ continues to play in said tournament. It should only take a minute or two pf your time to complete.

Thank you in advance.

I really need this community's help people. I want to download this sick thing and make into a printable model for me, but the model that was on the net got deleted. Please, anybody has a ripped model of this or knows where to get it? Thanks guys

Whee, giddy-up horsey.
a life-sized horse foldout we can put you inside of and set on fire would be nice
I agree
look for the llama, or the alice madness returns hobby horse for reference.
I don't think it'd cause me all that much damage. If it was just cardboard it would burn too quickly and be too structurally weak to really burn me, but it would look pretty cool.

Does somebody have Origami Masters Bugs?

happy folding
Not OP but thanks a lot anon, i already had this book in PDF but there was no text for some stupid proprietary font reason.

I might try to fold the praying mantis now.

Do any of you know how to diagram origami? Is there like a graphics package to notate it digitally, or is the only option doing it by hand (a fucking nightmare)?

Dear anon, truth is there are no shortcuts. No matter which software you choose, the point stands: you have to draw each single step.

This being said, I used Inkscape. You may want to try Dia, or any software with vector graphics support.

It takes forever. The final model image is not a drawing, though, I took a picture and traced it.
try the TreeMaker
That's not a diagramming tool though.
Don't diagram. Diagram is for noobs. CP shows the true skill of a folder
drawnings are clean but why are you using this S shaped path ? And why didn't you put any text on the diagram ?

This guy on Deviantart made this and it makes me cringe on more than one level.
I just want to know, if I am not the only one that feels that way.
