I have been working on a Board game for months called Papercraft battle

Keep up the creativity!

Does anyone have the pdfs and wanna share it
SOme one nibba
honestly i dont really like visualspicer's models because they're all 'flat' if you know what i mean. His star wars stuff is fine because they are smaller but his cars are like 2 feet and have little details in the parts which really is a shame because gundam models have way more detail put in to them, and even he's created a 6 foot gundam! if you really want to miss out on detail i suggest this model, though it might not be of your interest due to its size
Either way thanks i can split up the images and enlarge them so the size could be better thanks

yeah i've been trying to fold this one for a solid few hours and i always get stuck around part 20 because the side represented by the white covers everything at the bottom (represented by the red!) and that's the point where everything goes wrong and i can't really do anything

On 17 be sure to tuck it under so it looks like on 18.
To make 21: You make 20, go back to 18 and turn it over.
Fold the edges up. Make 19 and 20 while maintaining the 21 shape.
21-22 are the true bitch. You need to reverse that whole fold. You will need to open the model. When doing this it's easy to end up on a 20 looking shape. So you need to make sure, while reversing it, you are going to make the final shape look like 22.
For 24 take the edge closest to you. And fold it like on pic. Then the edge after it will deform and you fold that one into a pyramid.
Why are origami instructions always so shit? Why do they never bother to properly illustrate and show difficult steps from different angles?
Because diagramming is fucking annoying and difficult, and most designers donโ€™t like to do it (hence the CPs).
Also, more difficult models might have more difficult to understand diagrams, because folders are supposed to be better at folding and understanding instructions.
Maekawa's diagrams are well known for being very clear and unambiguous.
Sure they are, but as >>562006 wrote they are clear for people who know how to fold a bit.

I tried paying for Pepakura today (uk), but when I try and do the transaction I keep getting "invalid currency transaction".

What's Ultimate Papercraft 3D like? I think I might purchase this one if it's similar to Pepakura.
It's free isnt it? http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/download/index.html

I'm looking for papercraft models of classic arcade machines. There used to be a bunch online but I'm having a hard time finding any that are high quality. I want to make a bunch of xmas tree ornaments.
Things like these:

>people reposting my work

Feels good man.

Anyways, for tree ornaments you're basically going to be fine with the semi-low quality that most WayOfTheRodent-descended designs are. Depending on what scale you print them at, they can stand up to the naked eye just fine. I've got a pixelated Pac Man machine in the other room being hassled by Tony Stark and it's basically fine to look at it. Macro lens photography, on the other hand, that'll pick them apart in a flash.

If you'll pardon the expression.

By the way, the way to get around the unrelenting shittiness of Pinterest is to run an image off there through google "search by image", you'll get all other sizes of it on the internet.

I've got sweaty hand that morph and destroy paper, Helpssssssssssss!!!!
by the way, my contribution to people here

Holding your paper with tweezers can help. I also use cutproof gloves when using my X-Acto knife, which can avoid getting sweat on your paper and X-Acto accidents.
Puncture proof or leather?
like this

Don't think it matters as long as it holds the sweat in.
Same problem
What about talc? Or a dehumidifier blasting your hands?

How is this made?
1 reply and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
They look to be stacks of paper 'springs' coiled into a ring. Take two strips of paper and fold them one over each other in alternation. It's very simple https://bookzoompa.wordpress.com/2010/03/14/how-to-make-a-paper-spring/ they're great of various purposes - like popup crafts when doing cards and books.
Just make a number of these and stack them up with glue. That's my theory, anyway.
Actually, I just took a look at this picture now, and my theory >>561667 wouldn't be true. I think it's a similar technique to doing springs, but somehow all done in a single sheet of paper.
Looks like it's just a bunch of waterbomb patterns.
Looks like it os based off a grid (rectangular, i think).
At mid height you should make diagonal folds from mid-cell to mid-cell.
Then squash, open the middle, and I think friction should keep it together.

Nevermind, didnt notice the second picture; fold it like a fan, then open up the middle

anyone know what this says? need to know paper ratio
2 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
As >>558746 said, you need to check a previous diagram (this one is to fold a lid, the other one is probably for the box).
Hopefully, at the start of the other diagram, you'll get your ratio.
What book is it from?

You just reminded me that I bought this years ago at an aquarium and never assembled it.
Buying on backorder is fine. I just did it a month ago and got my shit. They'll just email you if they can't get it but I heard they usually get it 90% of the time, a little less if it's a figure
Went back to amiami amd they closed the orders for it rip.

Say I wanted to make my own pogs. What kind of materials would I need to make some that look at least semi-professional?
It depends on what you mean by "professional".
You could make them.out of balsa wood, plastic (Plexiglas), cardboard, card stock, several sheets of cardstock glued together.
Just experiment and see what you like best. I don't really think there were any rules when it came to pogs. Ive seen them made out of all.kinds of material.
I think it would be neat to have a pog resurgence. Maybe this time I'll actually learn how to play.
>What kind of materials would I need to make some that look at least semi-professional?
some sort of clamp/press and a good sharp circle cutter could make a nice punchout in the right type of material.
Buy an official POG maker off ebay.

Yeah nice one over there.
That's just a glorified button maker. What are you suppose to do when you run out of blanks?

I changed the original layout slightly
if you're into 40k you should check out all of the mda style figures that have been done
i have all those but i like the flipit aesthetic a lot more.

for me it's kirogami
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
kiri in Japanese is "cutting" so kirigami is just origami but with cutting.
Which makes it...not origami
It's kirigami.
Traditional origami involves cuts, however
Pattern for this one please? That looks awesome. Thx!
