Tron Bit Paper Models





Introduction: Tron Bit Paper Models

An employee of Instructables contacted me and encouraged me to post this set of three paper models which I recently featured on my blog. Since I hadn't planned on posting on Instructables I didn't have photos of the construction of the models to do a step-by-step, so I thought a slide show would be the next best thing. These models start as PDF templates which are printed on cardstock. The pieces are then cut out with an exacto knife, folded and glued together. Instructions on how to build the models are included with the PDF files which can be downloaded from my blog at:

[ Tektonten Papercraft]

There are also several more of my papercraft designs available for download on my blog. Most of my model designs tend to be movie prop related.

    neeet! i am going to make one tommorow! i just have one question, do you have to have a specific printer or something?

    No specific type of printer is required.

    please display how to make 3d modal.

    Check his blog (link is in the text) - the downloads are there, and include instructions.

    The Bit was the best part of Tron 1.0. It looks like it is in Tron 2.0 but it's not in the previews I saw.
    "Uh oh. We're going to hit that wall!!"
    "No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No!"

    That's pretty slick.  Although if it has a third state aside from yes and no(or on and off, 1 or 0) shouldn't it be a q-bit? 

    Seriously though that's pretty cool.  I love TRON, my wife thinks I'm nuts.  Have you see the free printable paper models of a recognizer from the movie on starship modeler?  Colored or non colored.

    who ever like nintendo and paper crafts should go to a web site called

    is there any possible way that you could make the instructions a little bit more step-by-step? for example, give one demonstration on how to do it so we have a point of reference.

    I would be happy to make more detailed instructions, but I need more information on exactly what you are looking for. Do you need specific instructions for each one of the different Bit configurations or would it suffice if I just showed the steps in making one of the configurations so that you can see the general papercraft building principles that are used for all the models?
