anyone know where I could find a 2.75" circle puncher?
I for the life of me can't find one anywhere
From the thumbnail I was wondering what kind of purpose this sex-toy has...
McMaster Carr carries one, Item No. 3427A44. Alternatively you could use an olfa circle cutter or similar, which would be slower but more accurate and way cheaper. Olfa makes three models, I suspect the one with a rotary blade would be nearly as fast as a punch. Good luck-
They have an adjustable one here that cuts any size between 1" and 3.5": http://www.donnellycolt.com/catalog/equipment.html

>Origami is so popular it has it's own board

Is this an autist thing or do this many people legitimately like making origami?

It's not just origami, it's shit made out of paper.

And yes, there's enough people here to warrant a whole board, but not enough to have it ever be really noticed by anyone who's not looking for it.

hey guys,
I'm looking for a rather simple origami designs, especially for rectangular paper, varying in complexity.

I made it a habit to make cranes of a bus tickets while traveling, but it got boring soon, so I started with the tulips out of two squares and leaving them on the bus.

This is a nice habit, but I wish to make different designs and wanted to ask you guys

do you have similar habits of leaving origami at random places?
What do you make? Do you know any simple, yet good looking designs for this?

Thank you

Just tried this, I don't think this is a good origami to do randomly on a bus.
Also, I fucked up something on the neck, my cat looks up, I should retry this.
Oh yeah, could do it a ton easier now.

Agreed. Waterbomb base butterflies are stupid quick to bomb out.
Are you me? I love making cranes and leaving them every where I think the same who every finds it can't be angry right? Like sure you will through it away but how often do you see one. I just like making then a lot but I only make them when I am sad.
But, what if they got attacked by a crane at some point and it triggers them!?!?!!!

OP here again. I just went through all this diagrams... Oh... My... God... I love you!
If you find this bat, please post here :)
Will sure do - if I ever find it!
>If you find this bat, please post here :)
Por mucho que he buscado, no encuentro ninguna referencia a ningún murciélago creado por Peterpaul Forcher.
En la web de Carmen Sprung están prácticamente todos los diagramas de las figuras que a lo largo de sus 40 años creó.

¿Donde lo has visto mencionado?
Si la mención es la que hay en el sitio de Gilad, yo creo que es un error con uno de Robert J. Lang.

En el Origami data base, tampoco hay referencias a un posible murciélago de Peterpaul

Well, I'm not 100% sure it's from Peterpaul Forcher - it was a long time ago since I saw the diagram and folded it (maybe 20 years)...
I only think it is from the same author, because I recall that bat's head was very similar to the head of "fuchs96", which is not so common (pic related).

I've got a bunch of old papercraft PDFs and images I saved around 2004.. so they're old. Is there a place I can upload them or someone I can send them to so they can live on?
What about uploading them here? they'll live on for a long time since they also end up in the archive.

Also that way everyone can take away what they want, if you don't want to do the work, make a torrent file and put it here.

Or make a big mega download out of it

thank you for the opportunity to get access to those old and often forgotten treasures
Is there any papercraft repository out there?

I'll make a megaupload.

How long do files live in the archive, out of curiosity?

You can open an account with Goooogle drive and uploading them there, then you can share the folder here.

Or make a public Dropbox folder:

I hope there's something cool in here. I threw them on MEGA for the time being, until I can upload them somewhere more appropriate
Thanks, anon. It will be enjoyed.

I want to get a gift for a friend, but I want it on the cheap. She's into the anime Hellsing, and I found a paper model of a gun from the show. My main question is: how durable are the things? I don't want to sink money into this if the stuff's insubstantial...
Assuming the design is of a decent make the durability and quality of the model is mostly based on your own capabilities. It isn't really a question on how much money you can sink into it, but how much time you can put in it.

If you just use cardstock paper, the durability is still very flimsy since these models are usually hollow. They will need to be reinforced if you intend to do more than just display them.
i assume its this one?


from the looks of it it seems alright assuming the only money you sink into it is a few bucks for some cardstock
I'm not planning on going ham, but I think the one I'm ordering comes with a kit
Damn, thanks. I almost just got ripped out of 12 bucks. I got steady hands and a determined heart. I can make this probably. Thanks again
Same guy did one for the Jackal as well, I've been messing with it for months on and off as I"ve had time. I take the pdf file to UPS and have them prin it in decent cardstock in laser color, pretty cheap compared to buying a printer.

Alright /po/, I come to you for help.
/diy/ was no use to me and pointed me here.
Can anyone help me find information on making paper furniture, such as:
or, this:

Any help would be much appreciated.
pic not related, it's the only thing I had that was safe for a blue board
Dear lord, this has to be the absolute slowest board on 4chan.
self bump
If no responses after this I'll let it die a natural death.
Just be patient anon

We're the slowest board with the wisest folk.

Also, bump for interest.

Take a look at the way Li Hongbo makes his paper sculptures. The way he glues it together in this video is almost what you'd want to do.

You'd need pieces of card all cut to the same shape (chair, or whatever), then glue them together in a similar method to that video.
However on each layer you'd need to alternate the glue lines so that they are directly in the middle of the ones on the previous piece, this will make the honeycomb structure you'd need for both of your links.

Best way to do this I'm guessing would be to make two stencils in the same shape as whatever your making with the lines cut out so you can paint the glue on accurately. Also looks like you'd want to glue the edges together on every other piece to make sure it's nice and neat.

Slightly related and for interest check out:
foldschool.com and sketchchair.cc
Ahhh! A gluing template. I hadn't considered that. That's ingenious.

Thank you. Excellent find.
No problem, good luck with it.

yes. i am using pepakura designer. i did a quick resize and moved parts around. some pieces span across multiple pages so you will have to tape those together to form the full piece. here is the PDO in case you want to fool around with it.

How do you make sure they're the right size for, say, the revoltech or figma?
Some are the right size already. But, a few whaen you print will have to adjust "print size" to 75%-80%. But any lower and it'll be to small.

What are some good papercraft gun models?

Hoborginc seems to have excellent ones but I'd like to find more on the same level. Most I see are either brilliantly modeled with terrible textures, poorly modeled with great textures or brilliantly modeled with great textures as paid PDFs.

Please recommend me some good ones, I'm particularly into sniper rifles and LMGs (big guns in general).
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Hoborginc aka shirtlesskun has great models, Paper-replika has a dragunov too:
What do you guys recommend to cover the model in after construction to keep out humidity while making it sturdier/holding up under pressure?
Wow, this one looks pretty good. Thanks, anon.
This very much as my interest
Paper-replika's models are mid-tier quality, have no supporting internal structure so it's really wobble. Don't expect it to be as firmly as horboginc's

Go to
Them dudes make better quality, but poorer texture so you have to repaint it. But it'll last longer
