I have some extra money, so let's play a game:
- you post a link to a paid model
- if i like it, i'll buy it and share
Absolutely no obligations there - I can like several models, or don't like anything. Or i can like a model, but cost can be too high.
Wanna try?

I miss the golden age of papercrafting. Nintendo-Papercraft, Ninjatoes, Papercraft Museum, Paperpokes, etc. Most of the community seemed to disappear around 2011-2013. Maybe it just became too difficult to extract models from HD games.

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.

So sad to see WWG go. And worse is the fact that the Terrainlinx system is going to die with them.

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?

Aluminum Horse
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.

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.

What would you guys think of a massive archive?
I was thinking on making a massive archive, with the ability for you guys to upload in bulk, and for a user to have maybe karma or experience levels depending on things they post there, and just have a massive archive where I would store all the paper craft models you guys give me. I'd also make sure to add to the archive all the mini dumps you guys are making, and we could easily reach 100k models in the first month. Everything would be categorised by tags and you would be able to access everything for free.

Would you guys support this with a buck or two to pay for hosting? I'd do all the development. If so, what should we name it?
