Instructables Robot -- Paper Model

FeaturedContest Winner
This is an instructable showing you how you can make your very own Instructables Robot model
i used photoshop elements to create the net for the model and to colour it and add details, overall this took me about a day to design but it will only take you about 5-10 minutes to make

I hope you enjoy it !

Step 2: Printing the Net

The first thing you need to do is print off the net for the model
you can download it below, There are two options, you can either download the yellow and orange robot or a blank template so you can colour it in yourself !
when you click print make sure you check the "center image" box and don't check the scale to fit box or the image will become distorted.

Step 4: Folding the Net

Now you have cut the net out you need to fold all the edges of the net, this will make it alot easier when you start to glue it all together.

Once you have folded all the edges and tabs, try to hold it all in place and make sure that you have folded all the bits you need to. (look at 2nd pic)

DANG!!! I JUST finished the body.

JUST

FINISHED IT!!!

Well not just now, like, I'm saying:

I JUST FINISHED IT, and GUESS WHAT?!?!

My brother comes, grabs his and kind of squishes it (badly), and he was like "what's this?". He's 15. MAN I GOT SO MAD, IT WAS LIKE BROKEN!!! Then I crumpled it up and now I'll have to do it again.
Aw hahaha sorry to hear that!
my brother ruins alot of my stuff too
I know...I had a Indiana Jones 4 limited dr. pepper can and my brother smashed it...I was really mad.

I finished mine awhile ago, but forgot to post pictures. I used the pictures I already had from my sandwich contest. I glued everything together, then put a toothpick in (I didn't have any paperclips). That's why his head is smooshed. I tried to force the toothpick in, and it smooshed his head. Poor robot...

Haha that's awesome ! Don't worry about the head, the paper is flimsy and hard to keep straight, I had to poke mine around for a while too :P Thanks for the picture !

No prob! I made one from card stock a month or so later, but I threw it away because it didn't have as much character as this one :D

2/5..   a bit confusing.. ADD BLACK OUTLINES makes it a lot easier to cut...

When printing use a photo editor and select invert colours.

Thank you! You made a really fun instructable, and it got my little grey cells going , on a cold winter night (-14 degree celcius). Can you possibly think of  a 3D cake pattern in the future??? :0)
I made this!
SNOW! and  robot041.jpg
the head is upsice down.....I almost did the same thing....
..........me too.........
I know it's upside down. I did it on purpose..well, kinda. I accidently put the slits for the "Bucket" on the wrong side and when I looked at it, it sorta worked for the "settings" =]
oh, LOL!
=P

Cool Robot in a retro tinplate kind of style.

You need to make some fierce Robot accessories to make you famous like:
  • KFC bucket helmet and guee-tar
  • vintage leather flying helmet and googles
  • Killer Union Jack jock-a-lope thongy thingy, he probably wears them to remind that something is always riding up on him.

lol Im allready working on templates for the KFC bucket and the goggles and hat, but thanks for reminding me about the Britain thong :D ill post the accessories later :P

#2 son wants a white outline version, so he can colour it and draw extra bits on himself. (Apparently I'm still going to be glueing it, though...)
