Introduction: Faceted Rhino Trophy

Hello !

here is my second trophy.

You can get the free PDF pattern on my blog :

If you like it, please post your work in comment section.

Quick it for birds who want to fly by their own :

- use a thick papper (+240g/m2)

- use a good glue, it helps a lot !

- start to assemble the smaller parts.

I posted the Jungle Panther last month, you can find it here :

Step 1: Step 1 : Creating the Pattern

I'll go through this step, if you want to do your own patterns you should follow Krummey's instructable.

I used meshlab, blender and paperkura for this project.

Step 2: Step 2 : Print the Pattern and Cut It

I made the pattern to be printable on a A3 sheet of paper.

It would give you a bigger trophy than mine. My "prototype" was a bit to small to my taste.

Start by cutting the faces out of the A3 paper sheet.

Step 3: Step 3 : Glue the Faces on Your Color Paper

Now you can glue the parts on your coloured paper. As told before, you should use a +240g/m2 paper.

Here in France I use "Canson 240g", it's pretty cheap and has a good quality.

I prefer to :

1/ cut first the printed paper

2/ glue it on my coloured paper (with a low quality glue)

3/ cut the coloured paper with printed paper on it

4/ score all the folds (you should use a paperknife to have straight folds)

Step 4: Step 4 : Assemble the Parts

It's easier to start by the small parts.

For this model I advise you to start with the horns and the ears of the rhino.

Use a good glue, it's help a lot. Be careful to not make to much smudges.

Stay organised, hardest part is to find the part you need to glue !

It's a long work but with patience you will get through easily.

Step 5: Step 5 : Enjoy Your Work

Everything is in the tittle !
