I made the Paper Strandbeest a while ago(It was my first instructable) And I finally updated it with a real working version! The old one had only 2 leg segments(4 legs total) and it could not walk well. The new one now has 3 leg segments(6 total) and can walk well. The old version is now going to be outdated to this version, but I will keep it up for people who linked to it, it being my first instructable, etc
Anyways, to the instructable!
Step 1: Supplies Needed
Tack or Pin
At least 4 big paperclips
Thick Paper(The paper used in my other instructables)
Step 2: Print out the template
I now made an actual template, not just a scanned image. Print it out twice, in case if you make mistakes.
I have this image here as a filler
Step 3: Glue it on, then cut it out
Get the printed pieces, glue them on the thick paper
Then when they dry, cut them out and glue then again on another piece of thick paper. When that dries cut them out and poke a hole where the template tells it to. I dont have many pictures here because I didnt print it out, my printer broke. Though I have a few pictures of them being glued and cut out, but it doesnt look like the template.
While you're waiting, cut out pieces of paperclips about 1cm long, cut 4 for each leg, 24 total
Step 4: Put the segments together
Get the parts for one leg, then using pliers, put a paperclip piece in as shown in the picture 2. Then follow the pictures to make one. Do this step 6 times to get the six legs
