I have been using a normal printer from Wal-Mart I bought a few years back and it works well with cardstock I bought a bit back but that's too thin for what I need currently I run into a problem trying to print anything much thicker. It jams or won't feed at all. I had some limited success by opening the back and forcing the thicker sheet through (the printer feeds front in a U shape and back out like most)

Are there printers that feed thicker poster board or feed paper in a flat motion rather than the U bend

I'm working on a piece that gets a lot of wear in one area specifically so thick stock is needed or I'll have to double up on it which won't look right
I'm planning to get a cutplotter for xmas. The models I've been looking at feed in a straight line through the device, so they should handle cardstock just fine.

You'll believe what I tell you<
I know it's late op, but the other common format for printers follows a _/ format with paper in the top and out the front. As they don't have to roll paper in half, they work with more types of paper.

ITT we post all kinds of 3D origami related stuff. Even though I am specifically looking for stuff like the one shown in OP, all kinds of diagrams and your own builds are appreciated.

Planes I can make from printer/leaf paper that actually glide and fly. I can never successfully make a good plane.

If you want to make planes. You need perfection.

You either go foldable paper planes, or go big with constructing actual planes.

But if you construct it out of paper, you better be fucking precies. Any imperfections would make the craft spiral out of controll and hit the ground.
You can make very capable gliders out of regular a4.

Look up white wings and similar designs. Following the same fashion worka with a4. Something like glue sticks give second rate results, but superglue is preferable.

One can even make tight, thin cone fuselages using super glue that are quite strong.

Wings are of folded and glued spar inside a folded skin.

Go for very low aspect ratios if you want to fly indoors as this lessens gust response.

Try to be precise but minor imperfections are no issue as they can easily be trimmed out.

I should also add that it is very easy to make a fuselage of triangular cross section with a4 paper, and one that can be both glued or taped.

This ends up being very lightweight, simple but also strong. Also very easy to attach v tails to such a fuselage, and have the horizontal side mated to the wing. Pinch the nose in to make it more aerodynamically clean.

Here is a triangle cross section fuselage airplane I whipped up.

I didn't use any sort of plans, just eyrballed things - so its not as perfect as it could be.

I used note cards, a gluestick and superglue with a bit of tape to hold on a pen cap for weight

I made some Gorillaz models a few years back. I never finished Murdoc and Russel though. I might still have the old corel files floating around on a backup of my old laptop if you're interested.
Definitely interested in those Gorillaz models, any pdfs you can share would be very much appreciated.
i am interested
Please come back Newobmij

but yes your hands which might work as a better example for a scale instead of lips and half a face but it's pointless to argue about it, the point is that OP showed she was a girl maybe to attract attention or simply she took a photo beforehand of her and the bunny in that pose (which is still what >>532951 said)
Post dolphin instructions please. that looks really nice.

You guys seem to be on top of your shit, do you have any tips for working with glue and glitter, vis as vis producing an elegant finished effect?

I ask because I just tried to make what I thought was going to be a five minute joke Christmas card, and roughly three hours later I look like I narrowly escaped the gayest battalion of the Festival Planet's invasion force.

Asking for how to work with glue and glitter is just a nobrainer - even preschoolers know how to work that shit: First you apply glue to the areas you want to spark, sprinkle over the glitter and either shake off the excess, blow it off, inhale it, or do whatever you like to remove it. Also, get the fcuk back to >>>/diy/ .
Just in case you weren't trolling, use foil for a finished, elegant effect. Colored foils with texture can be applied with gorilla glue, use it sparingly, and conceal the edges, it can look quite sharp.

If your heart is set on using glitter, then stick to your age range in /pol.
Just glitter everything!

>be 20y.o. me
>get into origami by guy at school
>visit an origami-workshop day organized by the Japanese Embassy
>all other participants were kids, 10y.o. tops
>had a ton of fun, learned how to make a leaping frog

tfw you're probably on a list
I will start a workshop the next wednesday.
I am 36.

Now I must to convince my little daughter that it will fun, damn.
You'll be fine. There's only a lot of kids there, because they want to get more young people interested.

I went to an origami workshop when I was 10 (had been doing origami for 3 years before that) and it was nothing but adults. I was in these classes with adults and I thought it would be intimidating but the guy I was sitting next to was an art teacher from the NY school of arts and he had to ask me to help him with folds.

What I'm saying is, take it as both a learning experience and a the gateway to teaching other people.

I got this years ago from my mom, she found it who knows where.. It's been sitting in my closet and I've got no plans to do anything with it. I know it's floating around as a free pdf too, but do you guys think anyone would buy it if i put it on ebay?
If so, how should I price it?
I'm a lazy fuck so i just nabbed a pic off google.
This will sell. I've built the original and seen the pdfs. The pieces are perforated for easy removal, with good, aligned double sided printing on the parts. It's much more labor to properly print and build this at home.

Although I'd agree it's not that great, I wouldn't say it's complete shit.

Yeah for a noob it's a decent effort.
Nice work and yes, pencils have a good effect on cardstock, copypaper too. I prefer laser, and a lot of the models I have saved are blank. Especially the wh40k.
ignore that guy
It sounds as though you already know that you won't get that bad cracking of the black "window" if you use an ink jet printer.
