In this Instructable, I'll step through how to make a 7' tall statue of liberty bust out of cardboard using Autodesk's 123D Make. The inspiration for this project was the last scene from *SPOILER ALERT*  Planet of the Apes.

Software used:
Autodesk 123D Make: http://www.123dapp.com/make
Autodesk 3ds Max (alternately you can use a free software like meshmixer)

p.s. I built it at TechShop!

Step 1: Secure a 3D model

You can find 3D models online on various websites like turbosquid.com

You can also 3D scan a souvenir statue. 
Where are the shots from the playa?
i think is from the movie "Planet of the Apes"

did your machine cut the cardboar? if you dont have that machine there is no way right?
WOW... That is one of the greatest makes I've ever seen <br>Did you seal it with anything to minimize dust etc?
Wow, how many sheets of virgin cardboard does that take in production? It's gotta weigh a few pounds when finished.
It took around 380 sheets of 36&quot; x 24&quot; carboard and ended up being ~1300 pieces <br>:)
You blew it up! Damn you!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that is cool!
Awesomely insane!
