What can i make with these paper strips?
17 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
You could weave them! It's super easy actually.
Just place half of them vertical and half horizontal, with the rule 1 above, 1 under, 1 above, 1 under, and so on.
I usually dispose of my crafts after a wile, so pic is the only one i have at hand. In this case I used strips with different width, but the concept is the same.

just follow the instructions until you run out of space of the stroke to fold

Hello /po/, I have some problems regarding my models. I have been trying some harder models lately, but the moment the model starts to get complex, I start to have some "bruised" looking parts, and whenever it gets foldel over itself a decent amount of times, I have a hard time even keep figure from staying folded.

Pic related is a Grey Wolf I tried a few days back, But the only way I could make it remain close in the middle was using some tape.

Is there any practice I should learn/avoid to prevent these types of events?

1. Bone folders make a huge difference. Use a butter knife if you have to. Try to make all creases against a table, not floating in the air.
2. I've been folding before I could speak, and even my first try at a model comes out very similar to what you have. Takes me usually the second or third try.
3. Models that you have right there might take me about an hour. Turn on some music, podcast or audiobook and take a long ass time. I go totally Zen while folding and take time perfecting each crease.
4. Leonardo Da Vinci once said something like 'the first cut is always the deepest', so make your initial folds as clean, crisp and accurate as possible.

These are just some tips for instant results on making origami look better. These tips will make your models closer to perfect, but nothing beats practice in the long run.
m8 just get some cheap 15cm kami off the interwebs
-use glue
-use foil backed paper
-use a bone folder, or a popsicle stick to flatten creases
>-use a bone folder, or a popsicle stick to flatten creases
I'll never understand the need for that kind of accessory.
We own five natural crease-flatteners on each hands (and feet), these are those parts called "nails".
Are you so unhealthy that your nails are soft as rubber?
Just because you cant afford one doesn't mean it's not useful

I've been looking for a White Base template too. Just when I thought I had found the perfect SD model I realized that the download links were missing :-/

Found it on PapercraftSquare btw
Wow!Good job brother, you look perfect, it even seems to be plastic.
there are these that go with the White Base. [BOX] link works.

Thanks for this! Any idea on where to find the White Base template?
check papercraftsquare it has a gundam section with things from easy low poly gundams to a 1:100 deep striker, some links are dead af, but take your time and you'll find awesome shit

The bigger ones are Robert j lang rose, you fold the cp and then, with a lot of patience, you wet fold the petals in shape. Probably looking for a video tutorial is the best thing, but basically you overlap the various layer and progressively reduced the amount of paper overlapped. The small one is naomiki Sato pentagonal rose (video tutorial: https://www.google.it/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D8YMgbtX7FZ8&ved=0ahUKEwis_Y2RmNbUAhXTyRoKHWnzDAcQ3ywIHTAA&usg=AFQjCNG4QIuuM9JmVuoCcwwyUiodj41X2Q)

Hello, I'm a first year architecture student,and I need to make a design that only folds. I've got the concept for what I want to do, but I don't know if it's possible to make it using folds only.

Thanks beforehand, and sorry for being a newfag.
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
That looks great. I'll try to make it, to understand it the most I can.

Thanks for your response. The only hard part is that I'm working with lined board, so to make the folds, I need to use a xacto knife and use the part of the knife that isn't sharp, in order to don't get a messy and ugly fold.
So, Kubo and the two strings was interesting.
It is entirely possible to fold the entire thing from one piece. It is a modified version of box pleating. However, the angles are advanced. Check out the origami cubed or origami to the fourth power, etc books from the osme conferences. One of those had an article you'd find helpful. And your teacher is wrong...some things are impossible with origami. This just isn't one of them.
keep in mind that the surface area of your paper is constant.

Finished the design for a bird today!
It is my first design and has taken me one month to fold and design.
This one is made from a 25 centimeter piece of American kami paper, so it doesn't look as well as it could. Is anyone interested in a crease pattern?

I created it by first using box pleating to create a stick-figure base. Then, I used a method called grafting to add paper to the wings to give them larger area and to the feet to create more toes. I then edited the Proportions of the model to look good when folded from a square.
You can find some books by Robert Lang about design in this huge free catalog of origami books
Nice one, keep it up!

Another fold of the same model
I'd not take Lang's books to be gospel though. They lay the math down, but that is not all you need.

Alot of modern folders think it is and that leads to people who can make really complex pieces, but they look the same as anyone else's or more often worse versions because they lack artistic expression.

Don't forget to work on your own style as you go. Origami is an art form first, math is only one tool you can use

how do I create an origami fungus?
Ive been searching for a while and I need a way to sell my magic mushrooms, and I believe the origami fungus will appease the buyers, I have a PHD in fungal selling and I believe I could make a good contribution to the fungus market, however, I call upon you, the people of /po/ to help me and create a origami fungus.

Anyone got models on this sort of skill level? I've already made one and a phoenix and need more challenging models :)

try stephan webers bull the folding is easy, but the shaping. no as much. there's a lot of shitty images of his bull make sure to take the pictures on his homepage origamilive as an example.
>I've folded models with 30 steps that are 5x harder than this
I'm having a hard time believing that. Maybe if one of those steps is "precrease this CP" with no reference point or "collapse the CP" without further indications.

You can make the other models that are in the books of satoshi kamyia.
really all cps are only 3 steps: precrease, collapse, shape

i'd recommend hojyo takashi's stuff
Some models aren't complex in the difficulty of techniques, but in the artistry.
This. Try some stuff from giang (?) din or Eric joisel. Their models are far less structurally complex but are insanely hard to shape. Eric joisels dwarf, though very easy to collapse is extremely hard to shape. I personally haven't seen a rendition better than Eric's

>la materialidad como el lugar donde las ideas y los signos se confrontan con los usuarios

por qué diseñadores, arquitectos y artistas hablan tanta mierda? el arte se ha ido al carajo porque esos pelotudos se dedican a hablar, no a hacer, el arte está prácticamente muerto.

Tadashi Mori m8
I started with both of them :). Then made something of Kade chan
Well what you have there is papercraft, not origami, and they can be more impressive and detailed, while not involving any folding more complex than mountain and valley folds.
You can't know.
