Note: The original link where I downloaded is not working anymore but thought others:
Step 2: Printing Plans
Although it is written in Japanese, is easy to set up following the diagram.
I used a feature of my printer to print a poster. I printed on a 4 x 4 (which has 16 sheets per page). In this way, we have to glue the sheets together to form one. See the comparison in the photo.
Note: When pasting, a failure occurred but had no problem because the piece that came out misaligned would not be used.
Step 3: Pasting Parts
Step 4: Cutting and Mounting Parts
Note: The folds in the cardboard were made giving a cut to the back of the cardboard.
After assembling the pieces and put them together, I found that they were huge. Thus, removed parts 17 and 18. Without these parts, the arms (or legs) were more proportionate to body size.
IF A HAD A LASER PRINTER, IT WOULD BE EASIER. :)
Step 5: Final Result
Now comes the best part. You can implement the way you want your "Heineken2D2"
He can turn:
- A new bag for your school supplies
- A "safe place" for your coins
- A lamp
- A pencil holder
- A room decor
- A mobile robot (just put electronic circuits and wheels)
- A toy
In the end, your imagination is the limit.
Hope you enjoy;
