Each summer I take on a new project, and this year, it's designing my own paper craft models. I have been making papercraft models for about two years now, but I have never designed my own. However, after acquiring some knowledge about creating my own 3D Models and using Pepakura (and a little help from this by member: krummrey), I was able to design my first papercraft: an elephant head!
The elephant is a very elegant and majestic creature, despite of its massive size. This beautiful paper craft of the largest living land mammal is a great addition to anyone's room. The elephant is around 23 inches long from head to trunk (when printed on letter sized paper). However, if you would like to make your elephant bigger (or smaller), I have attached the original Pepakura file. To change the size, you'll have to install Pepakura. Then, open my file and go to:
2D Menu > Change Scale > Scale Factor... > and change the height to however long you want
From there, you'll have to re-position the parts to fit the pages.
But for those who don't want to change the size, download the attached PDF!
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO CANNOT DOWNLOAD THE FILES: I recently launched my website, www.verticees.com to the public. If for some reason you do not see the files on the Instructable, please visit my website and download the PDFs you need from there. The site may have some bugs, but I am working to fix them right now. I appreciate your understanding.
