Dual Twister Ramp + (Design)

2 12 2012

This is the last design of a DTR.  I add 3 levels between the floor and ceiling. This levels are interconnected with this two ramps.

Super Mario (Design)

14 01 2011

Now it’s time is a classic character, this is Super Mario, in the version used in the Nintendo Wii game consoles.I first began to document with pictures I found on Google. Since I have extensive experience in 3D design from Metasequoia, I chose a symmetrical and there is also another view of the drawing, which in this case was a side view.These are the pictures chosen and although the image from the side view is not 100% fit with the image of the front view, is a good reference to achieve the approximate volume. 

The following images are renders made from Metasequoia, which shows the dimensions achieved in 3D based on 2D views and different views on the design of the finished model.

The following video shows some details of the design in 3D from Metasequoia.
With 3D design, made in Metasequoia, load it in Pepakura to unfold the design and to design templates, ordering all parties and grouped by color.
The following file is the template group in both color and black and white:

Original file format is PDO, can be downloaded from the following link: Smario01B.pdo(zip file).
Following video shows how the pieces fit together, from different parts of the model of Super Mario in Pepakura software.
Now is time to bring the colored paper to print the template group and then cut, foldand glue and create the papercraft design model of Super Mario.




Hello Kitty (Big Model – Piñata)

28 12 2010

From post: Hello Kitty (Model)

This is another Hello Kitty papercraft model, but on a scale of 150 cm (58.5 inches).

This photograph shows the model with the small model of Hello Kitty

In my country (Guatemala), these papercraft models are known as piñatas. In this case, was produced to celebrate the second birthday of my daughter.

Is made with a wire frame that provides rigidity to the model.

Other pictures…

The wire frame is made of galvanized wire size 16 (1.63mm)

The following video shows how it formed the wire frame …

To achieve the ratio of 150 cm model, I used the 29 cm model reference. each section was measured and multiplied by a factor to determine which is the measure proportional to the 150 cm tall.

  • section scale = section measured x 150 / 29

In the case of the angles between each leg Metasequoia export the model to Autocad DXF file, to view and print various views of the model and be able to appreciate more accurately the different angles.

The following PDF file contains different views of the model, they also can be used to scale measurements.

With the completed wire frame, it’s time to cover every segment of the surface withsheets of paper, but first we must develop glue made from flour, as shown in thefollowing video. For this case will be that of a measure of flour for five measures of water …

The volume of base paper is made to cover the entire surface, as shown in the following video …

A little help …

Some pictures …

Well, it’s time to decorate the outside of the model.  In the video below shows the different parts that were decorated with colored paper:

Ok, it’s party time, all children and some adults to break the piñata, to go all the sweets that are inside …

Bye piñata.. :(

Well, some points to improve …

  • The wire used in large parts must be of the highest caliber, to prevent the model is deformed when the paper dries and retract.
  • The paper should not carry much glue so it does not expand much and thus did not retract as it dries.
  • The support of the model must be stronger, to prevent bursting when the piñata is in motion. The support used was 3 wires, so I think it is better than double to tolerate higher tensile forces.




World Gear (Design)

1 12 2010

This desing is based in papercraft gear esphere and gears heart (see the links).

They can also watch channels each author on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/glue2chronicle and http://www.youtube.com/user/girigiriou.

The following images are Renders made from Metasequoia:

This is an animated gif:

The following video shows the different parts of the design of World Gear:

Well, it’s time to work on Pepakura templates for the design papercraft model of World Gear.





Hello Kitty (Model)

From post: Hello Kitty (Design)

OK, it’s time to get down to work and build our papercraft model of 29 cm tall.

The following video shows step by step how you can build the papercraft model of Hello Kitty to completion.

Here are some photos showing the finished papercraft model:

What will be the next step? Surprise!

To be continued…

After printing, cut and fold ….

The following video shows how the different pieces joined to form the papercraft model of Lego Man:

Some pictures of the finished papercraft model:

Now let’s play .. :)





Hello Kitty (Design)

28 11 2010

This is the design of Hello Kitty 3D (Metasequoia) based on 2D drawing below:

The next picture is a render from Metasequoia:

The following video shows the various parts and angles of 3D design:

Now it’s time to create design based on Metasequoia, the templates for the papercraft model from Pepakura.

This is the template of Hello Kitty from Pepakura Model (29 cm high) in PDF format (Includes Black & Color versions):

This is the original file in pdo (Pepakura): Hello Kitty.pdo (ZIP file)

The following video shows the location of each piece in relation to the 3D model, seen in Pepakura:

Well, the next step is to print, cut, fold and glue to create the papercraft model …

Dual Twister Ramp (Model)

25 11 2010

From post: Dual Twister Ramp (Design)

Based on the final design of the Dual Twister Ramp (DTR), held in Metasequoia, make a template (Pepakura) to build a scale model of the ramp (10cm high).

This is template in pdf forma (Black and Color)t:

This is the format version PDO: Rampa005x.pdo (Zip file)

The following video shows how they were attached to different parts of the scale model of the DTR:

These are photographs of the scale model of the DTR finish:


The following video shows the scale model of the DTR in action, with two mini balls (balls of paper) running down the ramps in various ways. For the same ramp and separate ramps.

Ok, the next step … create the real scale model of the DTR (59 cm high).

To be continued…





Lego Man (Design)

22 11 2010

I like the Lego toys, so I decided to make a model in Metasequoia.

My young son asked me to have a helmet.

This is a render picture:

But the 3D model was not enough, it’s time to make templates in Pepakura to give volume to the design.

This is the face template:

This is the template in PDF format:

This is the format version PDO: LegoMan.pdo (Zip file)

This video is an exploration of design from Metasequoia:

Dual Twister Ramp (Design)

19 09 2010

My first test design, in Metasequoia, is this twister ramp:

This design has four laps on a track. See the photo showing the different views in Metasequoia:

This is a animated GIF of the twister ramp:

This is a video of the twister ramp:

And this video with cars…

The problem with this design is that it only has a route entry or exit. I got the idea of crossing two ramps and this is the preliminary result:

This design is a bit loaded, so to simplify the two ramps, four laps in two rounds each.This is the final design of the Twister Dual Ramp:

See the next animated GIF:

This is the video of the final design of the Twister Dual Ramp:

This is some pictures  (renders) of the design:

This design has two laps on two track. See the photo showing the different views in Metasequoia:
