Introduction: REMIX - Papercraft Pocket Siren
This is a remix of the Pocket Siren by Kiteman, a laser-cut turbine whistle.
I don't have access to a laser cutter. But I do have a personal paper cutter a cricut explore I've won here on instructables btw. :D
So I decided to build the siren with paper instead of the acrylic in the original instructable.
Oh and... please vote if you like it.
Step 1: Cut the Paper
If you have a plotter that can cut paper, then load the SVG and cut it. The SVG is in A3 wich fits nicely onto a 12x24 cutting-mat.
If you don't have one you can print it out and cut it by hand. Obiously a lot of work.
I used 300 gram card stock, if you use thinner paper, you'll probably need more sheets than fit on one page.
Make four piles, one for the bottom plate (the ones with just one hole). One for the top plate with the many holes. One with the turbine and one with the enclosure.
Step 2: Glue
Take one of your pile and glue all the parts together. One after the other.
I pressed each part between two sheets of plywood to keep them straight and bond the layers.
Step 3: Assemble
To keep the turbine from hitting the outside walls, i used a little piece of wood in the centre.
Before glueing all the parts together be sure to test it out. Check if the turbine rotates freely.
If everything works, glue the plates together and...
Step 4: Blow
