Robert Lutece Papercraft Download

By Avrin-ART
186 Favourites

After being amazed by BioShock Infinite when I picked it up on a Steam sale in the second half of 2013, I quickly set to thinking of the possibilities of making a papercraft template from one of the characters. It turned out that the 3D ripping method was the same as how I got the later Mass Effect models, so eventually I set to work on one half of the game's peculiar set of physicist twins, Robert Lutece, complete with his sandwich board from the coin toss scene.

It took a long time to edit and unfold due to being very busy on my postgrad course but eventually I set down to build it between 18th Dec to 1st Jan. I would like to make Rosalind too, but time will be limited again so that won't be until much later in 2014 (Edit: if at all now). The photos above aren't the best so I may have a second attempt at them in future.

Realistic human faces are very hard to get right in paper model form, so I hope this bears a passing resemblance at least!

Below you can find the links to download the resources so you can print and build your own version!

Additional notes can be found within the download file and on PDO/PDF #1. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

Retrospective: Generally I like this one. The chalkboard is quirky and the face not too bad...I never did get those better pictures...

amazing work! I don´t know the character, but it is so well made, that I can´t resist.. :3 I got to do it!
Avrin-ART's avatar
Thanks! The game he is from is definitely worth checking out!

Oh my gosh how to you put these models together so perfectly! Anyway, do you use card stock paper? 
Avrin-ART's avatar
Lots of practice on simpler models first! ;)

Usually it takes me 2 attempts to get a neatly built head (always some parts you can't predict). Yes these are made out of a cardstock about 2-2.5 times thicker than regular printer paper.

I'm building this model right now and it's just asdfghjkl amazing!!! SO I have to ask: would you by any chance be willing to make Rosalind Lutece? Maybe? Please?
Avrin-ART's avatar
Thanks and hope it's going well!

I have the Rosalind model and started to edit it. But it's very complicated to simplify...I must've really been in the zone when working on Robert. So someday we might see a finished version but it's not high on my priority list right now.

Yeah I understand how difficult it must be. No rush of course, I'm just very excited to have both of them on my shelf.
I actually finished Robert last night and my oh my is he amazing. He tilts a little bit to his right, sadly, but that's most probably my own fault (I must have messed up on of the legs a bit)
Either way I absolutely love him and can't wait for Rosalind, but of course there's no rush. <3

very well done, the face looks almost exactly like in the game, I'm planning to build this one soon :D keep up the good work!
Avrin-ART's avatar
Thanks, that's always the hardest part to get right for both designing and building. :)

i am almost done with this model, i also made two pyros for me and my friend before. i love your work, the models are pretty much flawless. thank you so much for doing what you're doing (:
also i agree with the previous poster, Rosalind is MUCH needed.
Avrin-ART's avatar
Excellent, thanks for building all of these! Rosalind really is needed but I'm having a hard time kicking myself into action to work on simplifying the 3D :noes:

Could we have a Rosalind to go with him?
Avrin-ART's avatar
That was my plan originally, but it might be a while before I get around to doing it.

I am Surprised
NicklausofKrieg's avatar
you know what i'd do? perhaps i would edit it so that the board is blank of scores and i'll get to work on playing heads or tails myself.
Avrin-ART's avatar
Sure the textures are provided for anyone to play around with, though I don't think you'll be able to approximate the Lutece's 'luck' quite so well ;)

(Also I'm really liking those soldier and character designs of yours!)

Holy moly, this is amazing. 
What lb paper would you recommend?
Avrin-ART's avatar
Ah I tend to work in gsm instead of lbs for paper weight/thickness measurement, so err sorry I can't give you a clear lbs answer off the top of my head! There's a handy table of conversion here though:… 

Robert and my other big models are built out of 160gsm, whilst the recommend range is 120-200gsm or equivalent in lbs.

Thanks for the help! I'm also guessing you use A4 paper?
