printer if using included template
Step 1: Making a Net to Cut Out
use the provided template or draw your own onto some cardboard
my design is 300mm long for the main body, 240mm wide (before scoring and bending) and the triangles inside are 40mm equilateral while the cone ones are 60mm tall
Step 2: Cutting and Scoring
cut out the pieces then score them along internal lines using a ruler and knife pressed less hard.
score all lines and cut all lines on outside of shape. only score on one side
Step 3: Gluing
use a glue gun to first build up the main body and support system then add the cone part and hexagon on the end
