Bison Skull Papercraft V2

By Gedelgo

Pro tip: gift your papercraft to an amateur photographer.

I got around to updating my bison skull papercraft model. Aside from a major meshing overhaul, this version can have its horns in a separate color, and has much improved anatomy.

It was interesting having them side by side. I've gotten a lot better!

I have printed your Bison and can't wait to build it! I have been building 3d paper crafts for about 7 years, using a few different digital die cutting machines, and designing some (simpler than yours) items myself. I can't open the PDO file. I have tried several different ways. I'm doing something wrong. I am on a Mac.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Is this you? Because it looks like someone is trying to make money from your work. (If it’s you, ignore this message!)

I don't sell any patterns. Don't give them your money.

I just attempted this and it came out pretty well! I just have one question. When I was finished I was left with two pieces from sheet 1/7 that didn't seem to go anywhere. The bison skull looked complete so I just tossed them out but was I supposed to have extra pieces?

Those are probably the parts that fill in the holes of the nose.

Thanks for sharing this awesome work! I just made one myself. It's my second papercraft project so I found it very challenging but very rewarding :D  18199336 1933060226927240 624462757258647050 N by Senkou

Which lines should be folded mountain/valley?
alrassool's avatar
what is the size of the entire skull once its complete?
Gedelgo's avatar
40cm across, horn to horn. Smaller than life size but still pretty big.

Noob questions: are you supposed to glue the tabs in the order they're numbered? And what kind of glue do you use?
Gedelgo's avatar
Nah, pepakura assigns the numbers pretty much at random.

I use an Aleene's tacky glue pen but any liquid craft glue will work fine.
