Papercraft! Download, Print, Cut & Fold.

Jayhan Sim

So, suddenly you found out that your working space is a little boring and wanted to put some little cute miniature stuffs but without spending any money. Well, why don’t just making this do-it-yourself free papercraft?

There are several sites that offer free, downloadable, nicely designed paper models in PDF or picture format. You can print them out on a heavy paper or card stock, and cut out the model shapes and fold and lock/glue them to become a 3D model. It is really economical and fun to do too. Personally, I haven’t tried making any but I would like to try sometime near future! Below are the sites.

Readymechs are free, flatpack toys for you to print and build. They are designed to fit on an 8.5″x11″ page and printed with any printer. You’ll need double-sided tape, thick matte paper, and 10-15 minutes for assembly time.
