Board: /po/

"/po/ - Papercraft & Origami" is 4chan's imageboard for posting papercraft and origami templates and instructions.

Welcome to /po/!
Welcome to /po/! We specialize in origami, papercraft, and everything that’s relevant to paper engineering. This board is also an great library of relevant PDF books and instructions, one of the best resource of its kind on the internet.

Questions and discussions of papercraft and origami are welcome. Threads for topics covered by paper engineering in general are also welcome, such as kirigami, bookbinding, printing technology, sticker making, gift boxes, greeting cards, and more.

Requesting is permitted, even encouraged if it’s a good request; fulfilled requests strengthens this board’s role as a repository of books and instructions. However do try to keep requests in relevant threads, if you can.

/po/ is a slow board! Do not needlessly bump threads.

I've been on this site eight years but never to this board. I've done a shitload of work on the cricut (cnc machine for paper basically). I'm so entranced by the damn thing because the level of precision it has was totally unavailable at a consumer level while I was growing up (maybe I was just poor :^), I'm only 23). I do most of the designs on my own because I'm fairly good at photo editing, especially precision, pixel level work, which translates well to these projects for a number of reasons.

Do you guys consider it cheating? I can post a lot of my work if not. There's no folding involved, just glue, but sometimes it requires some tricks I consider clever and I'm certainly better at it than anyone on my staff who uses it as well. How does this board feel about this?

In Remembrance
In remembrance of the last paper planes thread, which just so happened to be one of the oldest boards on 4chan that passed away quite recently, this thread will serve as its successor. Hopefully this thread won't be prematurely bumped into oblivion like the last one did.

Anyways, this thread could serve as a sort of "Paper Planes General". Feel free to post your designs, .pdf files, and folding instructions. Anything goes as long as it flies or at least looks like its supposed to.

Just got more than a dozen of this aluminum paper. It was pure coincidence that I found it in this tiny island that I live in since It was the wrapping paper of a christmas gift someone gave me. I salvaged some of it and did this horse, then did some hunting to track down where to get it and I finally have a supply of this great paper.

Post diagrams and simple CPs that would be great for this kind of paper.

New thread
I said if I came up with anything new I'd share it with you all.

I'm still focusing on drawing, but at the moment I am waiting on books, and these are related to what I want to draw in the future anyway.

I've been focusing on minimalism, and have been trying to come up with a couple.

I decided not to post on the old thread. I don't really like having to slog through petty arguments and people being rude to one another just to find the one or two people who are actually saying anything civil and productive.

I don't know if I'll share diagrams for any of the models I make next Any fun I had sharing has been spoiled by greedy spoild people. I always ask for people to post their finished products, but so far have only ever seen one. Doesn't feel like I'm getting anything back especially for a community that seems so eagar to have every diagram possible.

Anyway, this will probably serve as an update thread for people who don't follow my Flickr.

Doraemon mini papercraft
IMG_3899 2
Hey /po/
I was in Japan and bought pic related for my friend. I saw the model and didn't pay attention when I bought it, I thought it would be clipping a few pieces together but instead it's a pretty involved mini papercraft project, and I am lookin for advice.

I see the sticky recommends PVA glue stick is and a pen knife in general. While I think a small pen knife/xacto is clearly necessary, I'm worried about the type of glue. Most of the pieces are really small, around 5mm x 5mm, so I'm worried unless I use a precise glue or extremely small nozzle, it will get everywhere.

Any advice on materials for this, or experience with these mini japanese papercrafts in general?

Also, I actually can read Japanese but the I don't see in the instructions where they recommend any of this stuff, it seems to be geared toward people who already know what they are doing.

Thank you!

I only need to model the base in 3D because I need the "rocks" to have enough room for the battery and the wiring and the model to be able to be taken apart.

Need Origami idea for my confession
Bros I need your love of origami to wingman me.
I'm a 20 y/o kid, never had much experience with dating but I've been close to this girl for a while.
She really loves origami but I had almost no experience with it. I plan to confess to her by making an origami with a hidden cheesy line like "will you be my girlfriend?". But I'm stuck on what kinda origami would work

Currently I'm planning to make a rose like in this vid and thankfully I succeeded, would probably write the message on the back of the paper and have her unfold the whole flower. What do you guys think?

I'm completely open to any suggestions here but if possible I would greatly greatly appreciate any nice flower origami that's not too difficult to make but easy to unfold. Thanks so much guys
