Hey, /po/. I'm working on designing a map for a D&D world which used to be flat but "the fabric of space" was folded into a ball by a wizard making the present-day round planet. The space between the folds are basically hidden extra-dimensional spaces (because the origin of the globe is not common knowledge), and the folds themselves act as ley-lines.

But my question is: does anyone have a good crease pattern for something like this? I don't want it too complex, but I do want it a bit more intricate than pic related. The players will not necessarily traverse the whole world so a pattern with many localized folds is preferred to something more uniform. And the result doesn't have to be a perfect sphere because ocean water can be used as filler.

i have two suggestions (they seem to be mutually exclusive)

1. low poly sphere/ papercraft sphere/ geometric sphere
>basically crafting a sphere then adding extra layers on the surface just like how a window in a children's book would work.

disadvantages would include
>placing game pieces on board would be hard- you can decide to place magnets on the interior of the sphere but you'd probably need large numbers of weak magnets. Otherwise, you could employ double-sided tape on the bottom of your pieces.


2.flat circle- display-able game board.
>view pic in link.
>make several circular maps and make it somewhat like a book- you can flip the pages to change maps/dimensions whatever.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Thanks for the suggestions, but I don't actually need a physical object to place pieces on. My plan is to overlay a crease pattern onto a flat map, then fold it up, then map the remaining surface land using a 2D projection like Mercator or something.

I have considered using a papercraft net for an icosahedron instead of origami.

Thank you so much! Finally I've got it. Happy folding!
Anyone know of any car or motorcycle origami books? I've never seen one. Even just a section/chapter in another book.
Hey! Watch this cool video and support us!

By any chance you have "Pajarita Convencion 2005; 2006 and 2009" ?

if you're using tape on the outside i don't understand why you're asking that question.
Next time, cut it out but have one piece as a lid, I recommend one of the large octagonal pannels. Make sure the octa-lid doesnt have any glue tabs on it, cut the shape out so the tabs are on the corresponding edges.
That way you can build it firmly using this lid gap and when it comes time to close, just glue the tabs and press the lid down on them.

What can i make with these paper strips?

Yup, knotology. Also snapology (which I like more), and maybe quilling. Although they are too wide for quilling strips, quilling usually uses ~5mm strips.

I really love making those lucky paper stars! They are super easy and fun. Takes a while to master puffing them up for some though, but quite rewarding.
You could weave them together or something.
Very quick and easy to make.

Anyone ever found the diagram for this little red fucker here?

Long time no see, /po/! I've been away from folding for a while now, and it appears all posts by me have disappeared.

But I'm back and with a brand new model, a wyvern!

So I was thinking of consolidating all my threads into this one in the future, for brevity and to avoid deleting other quality posts. Of course anyone else can post their designs as well, but any future designs I post will likely be in this thread.

Don't forget to check out my diagrams here: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0B1vYEdIPwkWcRDUxdDNZZml2RVE

Alright so I finished the first test model. Couple more notes:

1. Absolutely need to model a base for this, especially since the field sits lower than ground level.

2. Support beams are pretty much a requirement. Otherwise the flat areas can bend pretty easily and the whole thing warps and loses it's nice shape. I added a couple (one under the field, another under the entrance area) and they helped a lot.

3. I'm not totally sure the scale of this is correct. I need to spend a little bit of time going back in google earth and measure the size of things again. I'm aiming for a 1:1000 scale finished model, and I'd like to keep that for future stadium models.
Seems cool anon,
Well done.
I wound up being pretty busy last weekend so I wasn't able to get anything done on this. Will get back to this on Friday, gotta study for some exams until then.

Hey, I cant find any links that are not dead for this space marine mk7 helmet. Any help is appreciated, and if you have the pdo's for any other warhammer 40k models that would be awesome too : )
Try the actual download database. Most of the links in that thread are dead now.

I'm hoping someone here will be able to help.

I'm trying to find a template or guide I can use for printing and gluing my own slipcases for DVDs. Does anyone have any patterns or know where I can get some? All I'm finding is just the templates for the case art, not the cardboard slipcases themselves.

Hey /po/, /pol/ here
I'm the guy that made that origami plane for you last Christmas.

This time I'll be sharing some holiday origami and papercraft.

It's a little early but have a happy thanksgiving.

Ey /po/, one of the new Pokemon from Pokemon Sun and Moon version is Kartana. It looks like this. Can you make it in real life with origami, and if so, how?

Awesome. It would have been the worst waste of potential if this hadn't happened.
I mean Pokémon literally made this for /po/.
Origami means papercraft in chinese
It means folding paper in japanese
Hands down best pokemon

Do you guys know any interesting ways to make paper cities of this type? The accordion fold is simple and obvious, but maybe there's better ways?
I guess if you want to make your own, just get buildings that you would associate a specific city with, draw it on what looks like chipboard, cut windows and negative space and fold faggot
Thanks, I was more interested on other paper folds that could work to make the layered-city type of craft but I suppose simple is often best.
