Introduction: Faceted Rhino Trophy
here is my second trophy.
You can get the free PDF pattern on my blog : http://junglecalling.blogspot.fr/2017/03/have-you-...
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 : https://www.instructables.com/id/Faceted-Jungle-Pan...
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 !
