Tell us what it is and we can help you better.

Just throwing up a blurry image and saying "make this better" doesn't give us much to work with.
I think it's supposed to be one of those gift boxes which you cut out, fold and stick together.

So after doing a decent bit of research and purchasing and returning the cricut mini, my girlfriend and I have just about decided on purchasing the Silhouette Cameo 3. Has anyone here had any experience with this machine, or other 2D cutting machines? First time on /po/ and there's no sticky, so sorry if this isn't exactly what this board is for. I mostly stick to /wg/

I run CNC vertical mills and lathes, and big Japanese CNC (shoda, etc) routers. Once I had to make a part from spongy 8mm urethane foam. It drove me nuts trying to cut it with endmills, so I made a holder for a razorblade. I can orient the spindle by every 0,1degree and lock it, but can only make many many short straight cuts with this tool. I've had a hellovah time doing soft materials before this, and had suggested that we needed to farm out these odd, rare parts to someone with a waterjet CNC machine. I've seen paper/foam/paper laminate boards cut with waterjet machine with zero tear-out but I'm thinking about adding an Arduino controlled solenoid to reciprocate the cutter.

What are the blades you guys use?
I Thought about making a swiveling holder that lets the point of the cutter lag behind tool center, but I can simply allow the spindle to orient before the cut, and then turn off the M19 spindle orient code, and let the path move the tool as needed.

I wonder what the lag distance is for paper cutting tools, and what cutters are used. I've simply been using box cutter blades and can cut up to 20mm thick rubber by making multiple passes.

I make tool holders for carbide inserts now and then for custom angles for big repeat jobs, which is faster than ball milling somebody's required stupid angles like 5,8 degrees or 60,5, when they simply do not want 6 or 60 degrees for which tools exist. So I'm sure I can make a holder for the little paper cutting tools. Some of our machine's travels are several thousand millimeters, 112x136" and I thought it would be cool to do some Tesselations of paper and frame them like a free standing screen.

It's just a simple fractal based on a design I saw somewhere, but thank you! Here is the cut and crease template, sadly can't post .svg or .dxf here, and I don't have a converter to .pdf. Actually it would be very cool if we were able to upload .svg to 4chan, too.

damn, that version had small errors which had fixed last week, but only in the dxf version... here's a better one
Bit late so perhaps you figured this out already but you can set the blade to 0, treat it as 1 in the software. Works great for thin papers.

As an alternative, they also have embossing and stippling/etching heads (meant for the curio, but they work just as well on the other machines), or you can use an empty pen and the pen holder.

Hi everybody, I have a little trouble here. I have a friend who is a skilled papercraft fan and I'd like to get something for him for Christmas. He likes to craft large, complex vehicles, cars including the engine and all the details to the top, so it needs to be something really challenging and complex. But I don't know where to find such sheets and unfortunately, here in Czech republic, it's hard to find a shop which has something special, or anything he hasn't done yet. Can you help me out? It needs to be a vehicle, a car, something industrial, machinery. Thank you very much and sorry for any mistakes, I am czech, still learning to speak english properly.
This site has a lot of nice vehicles as well as a whole assortment of other stuff, you'll be surprised what you might come accross http://only-paper.ru/
Exactly what I had in mind, thank you very much!
Your english is alright.
Click the number in people's post to quote them, that way they get noticed if you tell them something.
Other than that, you don't need to use names here. Most people don't like people who do and often avoid helping them. Me included. I'm only helping you because I can see you are new around here and didn't know this.

Hey friend from /po/, /3/ here.
I would like to help you guys. I had a quick look on the board, and it seems that you guys use some 3D modeling to create your -amazing- papercraft props, right?
I have almost 5 years in 3D modeling, which I think could be useful to you guys :)

Anyway, there's a party coming up and I would like to creat a mask.
I would like to create something that you guys are interested, and while I do that, you guys could help me in doing something cool for myself - sounds fair?

Just tell me how I could help you, and point me to the right direction showing me some cool masks and ideas and how to create them to help me.

I started with /3/'s sticky and gradually studied more from youtube and other sources. Eventually I had the opportunity to study in workshops with amazing artists like Rafael Grassetti and Bruno Câmara.

Softwares are not that super important - they're asking which brands of glue of pencil and artist uses, you know? HOWEVER, some softwares are pretty much industry standards, like Zbrush and Photoshop. 3Ds Max and Maya are extremaly common aswell, but most companies have their own pipeline and software preferences.

That's why Theory is more important than software. What matters is How and Why you do certain stuff, not "which buttons to press".

Any leads on some cool masks to do?
OP here.

Is this thread somehow against the board's rules? It seems like a Mod is trying to bury it.
Nice try.
No, seriously.
I don't get it

Anything Dragon Ball, but mostly looking for Shenron and Dragon Balls.

Does anyone have the part 2 to this Zero Cubeecraft? I can't seem to find it.

I''m folding the CP from http://khlgarden.blog.so-net.ne.jp/2016-09-01-3 and can't figure out how to get the body right. Can anybody help? Whatever I try, the relation between body and head, and body and hair is off
You need to fold the rabbit ear first then pleat it to form the body

Sorry for the stupid question, is there any major difference with the smaller pdf? Is it just lower quality?
Not the anon who posted the pdf but : i have a 11Mb version of this book in pdf and it has 487 pages including cover, the one posted here as 482 pages and no cover. So i think it's safe to assume there's not much missing on the smaller pdf.

As the other anon said i think 2nd year in math major is sufficient, but not mandatory. The math in the book is somewhat different from what you would encounter in the first 2 years of university so it's not a big deal if you lack that background but it's better if you're used to math language, proofs and reasoning.

Also feel free to ask math questions.
Can you please post a mediafire link to the 11 MB version

No i won't. It's to much troubles for just a book cover and a back cover added.

Just search on libgen or google like i and the other anon did if it really bother you.

Made a tiny vial of white ones with two red ones for my boyfriend for Christmas. I wanted to give them to him the first time we met up irl, but I never got around to getting plain red paper. They're different sizes on purpose to represent the different people in the world. The two red ones have notes in them. White ones are kind of shitty because I used thick sketch paper and had to cut the strips with scissors.

You guys usually cut out stuff like >>547256 with an Xacto knife right?

>I have a paper shredder that cuts about the right length
What brand? I've been looking for a paper shredder that cuts in a workable width but all of the ones I've found were too thin.

Yep! It saves on printer ink to only have a half-design on it, since you won't see the inner white parts.
Typically it's easiest to use something like a wide-spaced paper shredder or a guillotine style cutter. Failing that, X-acto knives are pretty cheap and accurate. If you still have troubles with wonky edges after using those, try measuring the strips out on both sides with a ruler, and connecting the line between them to make an easier to follow guide.

What kind of paper do you guys use?
37 replies and 16 images omitted. Click here to view.

MC is methyl cellulose - It's just a certain type of glue. You can get it in some art stores or online. It comes as a powder you mix with water. Most of the time people use it to size (as in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sizing) certain kinds of paper so that they can wet-fold and shape it effectively.

You can also wet-fold directly with the MC, but I don't really like doing that. I prefer just using watered down PVA glue since it dries way faster.

Double tissue is great. Pretty much just using MC to glue sheets of regular tissue paper together to make it a little thicker and more receptive for shaping and stuff. It's really nice to fold with and winds up being really cheap compared to most of the other real options for complex origami.

If you want to make double tissue, here's what I do:
- Get a big piece of glass. I use an old mirror
- Put a piece of tissue paper on it, spray it lightly with water, smoothing out as many wrinkles as you can as it expands.
- Lightly spray another piece of tissue paper so it expands.
- Put that piece of paper down over the other one, avoiding all the wrinkles you can
- Paint the whole thing with lots of MC

screnshot and saved, thanks

you can also use any window of your house instead of a miror, but the gravity will makes things a little harder.

One technique i like to use is to wrap (tightly !!) the second sheet of paper around a cylinder and then unwraping it over the first (already wet) sheet. If the wraping is tight and if you apply a good amount of pressure while unwraping it there will be almost no wrinkles.
Fun fact : MC is used litterally everywhere. In glue for wallpaper, il milkshakes to make them more viscous, and even in porn to make false cum. So great stuff !
Can i just use printing paper?
