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.

Hi /po/
I've been stuck on this step for Robert J Lang's Cerberus in Jay Ansil's Mythological Beings for a while.
My problem is that I don't exactly know which flap to pull out and how. I've tried the left one which you can see the crease for but I don't know how I'd accomplish that whilst being able to fold the behind paper as shown in #19.
Any help would be appreciated
The steps can be found here:
Forgot to mention, its on page 77
I don’t know and I can’t find out right now, here’s a bump.
on the back you should have a continuous triangular flap on the back. pull that through the slot and fold in half along the diagonal of that flap

easiest step in the model. it's the middle flap. or the corner of the bird base

In modular origami, what’s your opinion in using glue? Is it a fucking waste of time, useful or should be banned?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
So, non-modular difficult models using MC (which is basically glue) for shaping are not origami either? Many super-complex models use glue in a shape or another.
>modular origami
fuck that is cool
Nothing wrong with using glue. To make kusudama usually requires thread, no real difference.
This guy has a good take: http://www.britishorigami.info/lister/glue.php
This has some info as well: https://www.origami-resource-center.com/pure-pureland.html
Just like origami versus kirigami, if you only have to make slight cuts (like a dragonfly) its still origami, not kirigami, its primarily folded.
I was in the no glue camp and raged every time someone mentioned any model that didn't consist only of whole, unadulterated square paper. I had been spoiled by modules that actually interlock strongly and hold each other in place. Then I tried making a kusudama with modules that barely interlock, where you can literally pull out any module with minimal tension, and quite literally falls apart under its own weight.

At first I held firm in my belief that glue was haram and that the design was just shitty, then I realized that that's retarded because I already have all the fucking modules made, who gives a shit if it's not origami I want to see this shit. Glued that bitch together and boom I have a beautiful stiff ball that I can throw around and abuse and it doesn't matter because it's not pure origami but hey it looks cool so go ahead and glue anything you want. Also some people don't even think that modular origami is pure so whatever bro you do you.

Origami is just a term. As you say, you can do much more complex and skillful things without having to be confined by arbitrary rules
I use glue if necessary but only so no one can take apart a finished model like the Five Intersecting Tetrahedra. Something like the X-Faced Cube wouldn't need glue at all if you're not a sloppy folder.

thank you very much
np. now if I can just finish the other customs, I'll be golden.
It was fiddly in the original scale! Has this been reduced, or kept the same to give it a more imposing relative size? Very cool model though, good articulation. Was tempted to make alternate weapon/forearms for it..

I shuffled the parts around a little bit, so the drivers fit in now. Also thought it would be nice to have numbers on the turrets.
I made these smaller models because there was a need (crossmire) and I knew I could fill it. I knew someone would rearrange the models so they could print what they wanted without wasting paper, and I'm glad to see someone has. You could also do this for the troops page to get only one faction. Printing an entire army of infantry on only a couple of pages is pretty sweet. Nice job.

How do I diagram origami digitally? Is there a simple program for it, or is there just no way of doing it?
There are various programs you can find in https://www.origami-resource-center.com/computer-stuff.html#software
I'll point out that
is source-driven not requiring an interface.
Some people prefer this approach (but most don't)
Dude there was just another post about this here >>566981

As someone else suggested, download inkscape. It's simple to use, and has tutorials if you get stuck
And if you're the same person as the last post, just give up on this easy way out mentality. The reason creators make crease patterns now is because every tool for diagramming available is slow and tedious. If you want to speed things along the only way is getting used to a program's controls and planning ahead

That shouldn't be the case, could you elaborate?

In remembrance of the last paper planes thread, which just so happened to be one of the oldest boards on 4chan that passed away quite recently, this thread will serve as its successor. Hopefully this thread won't be prematurely bumped into oblivion like the last one did.

Anyways, this thread could serve as a sort of "Paper Planes General". Feel free to post your designs, .pdf files, and folding instructions. Anything goes as long as it flies or at least looks like its supposed to.

You can do some origami. I made this today

Printing papers can hold themself in case of B&W.

From what OP suggested, there are paper child and dressing doll. A cool origami is too op for printing paper to handle.
Is that a Chromebook? Looks good
A number of the models here with smaller pieces will hold up well on normal paper but I'm not sure what kind of paper you have there in your pic.

What can I do to improve this stencil?
File: helping_anon.png (225 KB, 1020x1444)

1. Remove all unnecessary details, and then some of the kind-of necessary details on top of that. If you notice it disappear when zoomed out, keep it. Detail is a right bastard to get right, so it's often easier to smooth over into different, larger shapes. Makes the stencil easier to cut out and more stable to hold/spray around
2. Bridges. If you want to cut the white bit out to outline around, these are the things that keep the thing from tearing apart in your hands since you can just go over it in post. Obviously if you are just cutting into a piece to spray into the black bits, you can ignore this image, because you'll have different islands to deal with and bridge (most would be in the hair). Ideally, make the bridges obnoxiously big and connect a few points together, it makes the stencil more stable and harder to miss them when going over it post-spray. On the flipside, smaller bridges (like in the hair) are stupidly fucking tedious to get right, easier to fuck up the entire piece with a slip-but harder to notice if you get it down. Dots (like the ones attaching the hair to the face) are shit easy to do, add a nice amount of stability and are overall good calls to pepper longer stretches with (just remember they exist)
3. Don't forget, you are essentially free-spraying when bridging shit, so take that into consideration. Alternatively you can make another stencil with the white added to the black and the bridges as white, then spray those inwards. Be careful however, because if you get it 1mm off; it looks really fucking weird and disjointed.
*If you don't notice it disappear
