Creating a paper fox model



Emu is working on a 'paper model script'. As a testcase, he presents this amazing paper fox model.

Emu writes:

The blend model is made from a reference photo, and the textures are mostly copied from about three textures I found on the Web. I'd like to note that Blender's texture painting tools are great, I've just discovered the Stencil mode and it's saved me a lot of work.

Real-world size is about 20 cm. The paper modeling was quite difficult at times, mainly because the model contains some tricky curved shapes, and also because I used tiny sticking tabs (about 1 mm wide). It took me one whole day since from printing to completion. The model has 328 tris.

This thread is partly an advertisement for my paper model script that I'll hopefully make to a finished state before the 2.70 release. I will also make this pdf and the blend file public in few days, so stay tuned.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. I remember a very old script which I used for something like this at Uni. I think it was 2.4x I'm glad to see a resurrection of interest in it!
