GLaDOS, the antagonist from the game Portal 2, is an artificial intelligence who, half-way through the game, is ripped out of her body and put into a small computer powered by a potato battery (potato + GLaDOS = PotatOS, in case you didn't get it).

I've been sitting on this model for some time now, over a year actually, and I've come to the conclusion that I just can't seem to muster the drive to finishing it. On the other hand though, I have already done most of the design work, and it'd be a shame to let it go to waste, so I've decided to post what's finished with a disclaimer:

THIS IS AN UN-TESTED MODEL.

From what I remember, I had already given it a first pass, but there will probably still be a few kinks, and any prospective builders will have to deal with them on the fly. If you do give it a try, feel free to share your experiences or others to learn from!

I had to do a lot of work on the textures and mapping, it seems like it was designed to only look good from a first-person perspective, as the back was a mess. I did my best to touch up the seams, but there are still some rough spots. If anyone is interested in trying their hand at it, I'll post the texture file.

The scale was a bit harder to figure out; the model relative to Chell is actually huge, at least half the length of her arm, and probably would have weighed a good 15lbs (~7Kg), where as a real potato is closer to 4" long and less than half a pound (~200g). I settled on something in between, largely for practicality's sake: 6.5" (16cm) wide X 8.5" (22cm) high X 4.5" (12cm) deep.

On a side note, where the hell are you supposed to post .PDO files? They have several categories for papercrafts, but none accept anything other than plain images... I've been having to throw them in one of the miscellaneous/tutorial categories...

Heh all right! This was probably the quickest I've ever designed and built a model. Usually I get side-tracked after designing it and work on another project... but not this sucker. I spent.. maybe 5 hours total, finding the textures and making a new 'build-able' model, converting it to cut-out form, then actually printing, cutting, and assembling it. All it needs now is a stand... maybe I'll just hang it from the ceiling with some fishing wire.

According to the size of the 'real' Halo ringworld given by Bungie (Halo's makers), this model is on a 1:32,808,399 scale (the model is 1 foot in diameter, while Halo is 10,000 kilometers). What I've noticed is that paper does not scale well; the larger you build it, the more distortion it will have. This one is pretty good, and almost sits perfectly flat. But that's after toying with it for quite a bit.

You shouldn't need instructions for this one, just use the letters as a guide to match the 6 pieces up

Credits and Copyrights to Microsoft and Bungie Studios... you know the drill.

As a thank you for Midna becoming a Daily Deviation, and as a 100th deviation special, here it is - my papercraft collection!

I’ve been papercrafting since late 2009/early 2010. The first model I ever tried building was a Mew, which I never ended up finishing. The first model I did finish though was No Face’s mask, which can be found in the picture! As you can see it looks a little rough, but hey, you have to start somewhere, right!

For anyone who’s ever thought of getting into papercraft, just go for it! Start off small and work your way up. You don’t get good at it overnight, but when you do gain some skills in the craft, you’ll be able to build anything and have wonderful sculptures afterwards!

There are over 100 papercrafts in the picture (I took a separate picture of each model on a black background and then compiled all of the pictures into 1, they’re not to scale with one another), most which have there own picture in my gallery, so check it out. There are some papercrafts that aren’t included in the photo, ones I’ve made for other people and no longer have, and other ones that are on display in my room and were too hard to take down. Every papercraft I’ve ever finished building is listed below, by category, including ones not included in the photo.

Zelda: Life size Link, Life Size Imp Midna, TP Zelda, Princess Midna, King of Red Lions + ocean base, Ghirahim, SS Impa, Nabooru, Saria, Darunia, Ruto, OoT Zelda, Rauru, Triforce, TP Heart Container, life size Ocarina of Time, Midna’s Fused Shadow/Mask, Zora Armor Link, Makar, Sheik, life size Zora Armor Helmate, life size Hylian Shield (cosplay version), life size Master Sword (cosplay version)

Pokemon: Raikou, Suicune, Entei, Dragonite, Mightyena, Psyduck, Milotic, Wailord, Darkrai, Togepi, Cacnea, Snorlax, Corsola, Blaziken, Wobbuffet, Venusaur, Shaymin (land form), Deoxys, Lapras, Skitty, Prinplup, Latios, Latias

Studio Ghibli: Howl’s Moving Castle, Howl’s Flying Castle, grey Totoro, blue Totoro, white Totoro, Calcifer, Flapter, Tehanu, Arrietty cubee, Yubaba, Sen cubee, Haku cubee, No Face mask, Nausicaa cubee, Howl cubee, Kodama, Ponyo cubee, Sosuke cubee, Jiji, Catbus cubee

Death Note Cubees: Ryuk, Light, L, Misa, Near, Rem, Teru

Other: Telephone Lady Gaga cubee, Born This Way Lady Gaga cubee, Elizabeth Shaw (Prometheus) cubee, white dragon

Not Pictured: 8 life size Bleach swords, Ichigo’s Hollow Mask, 2 Chinese Lanterns, Swampert, Ludicolo, life size Celebi, sea turtle, falcon, grand piano, 2 Lady Gaga cubees, N64 Ocarina of Time, many Totoros

If you’re interested in a link for a template, please check my gallery to see if there is a separate picture for the model (template link in description). If there isn’t one, leave a comment with which model you’d like the link for and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

I hope this inspires some of you to try your hand at papercrafting! Thanks so much for all your support this far, and I hope you stick around for everything to come!

oh man, that took long ^^;
but finally i can show you and share the final model of Tails :dance:

before you now download the model, print and start to build it without any background informations
i have to warn you, building this model was just a pain is the ass and it was probably the hardest model i build so far :faint:
and in my case that should mean something :blushes:

even the editing was hell and meanwhile i know my job, but had i known that it would be that hard, i had edit the model much much more
there are still a few issues in the mesh but no worries, i will explain everything in the building process shots. :)

i can't really say why it was so hard, there are not much pieces or rather, not more then other model
i also cut the sheets in the best way i know, but to combine all the stuff, specially the wiskers, the chest and the tail pieces, was just ugh :doh:
maybe because this time it was just something special
the model is flying, the tail is quite the same size as the rest of the model and to find a working method to combine it with the torso took me a whole week
but hey, it is working as you can see and that's part of the job, to find and solve issues of the own models ;P

i also made a lot of photos this time, that you shouldn't have that much problems here :meow:

model description:
the model will come on 37 pages with 265 pieces and is 45cm tall
again, the model has a flying pose and will not stand anywhere
it is very hard and has a lot of weird looking pieces

the difficult level this time is 10
so don't underestimate it
and take a look at the building process gallery

file description:
the file contains as always three pdo files
one with texture and folding lines
one with texture and without folding lines
and one white version with folding lines

so you need again the Pepakura Viewer what you can get "here"

all three pdo's are not protected
so if you have the Designer, you can edit the sheets in the way you want :)

i didn't made any pdf files yet, because with 70mb each, they are just huge :(
but maybe i find an other way to upload them :)

the package also includes original texture


if you have any problems ore questions
feel free to ask :)

to download the model
click on the download button on the right side
you can thank dA for, that i can't write the direct link anymore




some word to the bloggers


you have the permission to use my photos
this model is a Deviantart only download
so do not upload this model somewhere else
and the most important thing

this model is free and should it be
so let it be!






and trust me, i search for my stuff ;)

feel also free to write a critique :)

Finally, finally I can call her "folding complete".
It took forever but I made it.
My next job is to paint her.

It is based on the models of :iconponinnahka: poninnahka.deviantart.com/art/…
whos models are based on the models of :iconkp-shadowsquirrel:
------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok, here is everything you need to build your own:
the .pdo for pepakura dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42…
the papers without numbers dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42…
the papers with numbers dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42…

Attention: this is a not textured model, since the texture maps where broken I did not bother to go though all the work to make them happen
(well I used the colors, that you dont see in my model because b/w print, so all that is missing are her eyes and her cutie mark),
and her right wing was not connected after importing it in pepakura.
If you want to paint the model after folding like me that is no problem at all, you just have to notice that the right wing in inverted as a model (so the colored side is INSIDE the wing).
If you want to have a textured model, maybe you or someone else can work better with textures then me, so here is the 3d model from blender dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42…
and a .obj from it dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42…

Finally, took some time again but now she is ready to print.
I had to do some changes in Blender, especially her wings had NOT been ready for papercraft, to much clipping.
So, now I am just 250-300 hours away from the finished model... ready ... set... fold!

Finally in the first week of October 2012 Yoshi was completed. I am a dummy!
I had several problems with the paper pulp because it was a season of high rainfall and humidity so this took a long time to dry.Waaaah!  The pieces were flattened and dented and the filling of swarf and sawdust was compressed inside, causing depressions in various parts of the model CURSE YOU! (even with the layer of pieces of paper that was added).
Fixed those problems was sanded and polished, then added shading and highlights with paint, and finally a layer of matte and glossy varnish :painter: .

Hello! :wave:
I leave this picture, this is one of my favorites of this little comic. Thumbs Up
The papercrafts are: Lara by :iconninjatoespapercraft: and T-rex by
:iconpaperjuke: . Lara is printed on paper 90gr to 4 pages per sheet and T-rex is printed on 120 gr paper to letter size.
For those who are observant, you could see the small variation in Lara's hair, yes it is natural hair! :happybounce:

My papercraft of the Sagrada Familia completed, done in 2002, when I was 13. I also did a base (it isn't very well done).
I keep it on my garage, so it has a large layer of dust and spiders.
I'd have to clean it and make a new base because I would like to sell it in a souvenir shop around the actual construction.
