Introduction

What are Foldables?

We have created a collection of original models starting from our really cool low poly 3D files and made them available for everyone to turn into physical works of art.

Papercraft is not something we invented, but we are trying to bring a new light to it, with our big experience in design, architecture and animations.

Check out what we have prepared your you and let us know what you think on our social networks.

We have made two kinds of Foldables, Printed & Digital.

Digital Foldables are instant downloads you get in your user Dashboard, on the Downloads section you’ll find the list of your purchases available, forever.

Printed Foldables you purchase a print from our store that we send to your address, with that print you can make your own model in high quality, glossy & resistant paper.

Instructions

How do they work?

There are 3 main details to have in mind, Elements, Indicators & Guides:

Elements

Islands
Independent elements with multiple faces, flaps and directions.

Flaps
Faces inside islands colored in gray, they indicate where to apply the adhesive.

Arrows
Tells you where external flaps get together with the island you are on.

Indicators

Island Number
Indicates the island’s main number, later shortened as I1:, I2:, I3:…

Flap Indicator
Placed inside the flap, they will tell you where to go and join with other islands.

Edge Indicator
Indicates that island’s edge number. Flap Inciators will bring you here.

Guides

Valley-fold
Means you should fold the same as, let’s say a book, the guides should stay inside.

Hill-fold
Opposite to valley, folds outwards. Leaving indicators under and inside the shape.

Cut
These outline islands, cut all these but save leftover for later guidance, just in case.
