Step 1: Digitize Your Design

Open 123D Design at and build your design. I only used two primitive shapes for this one: 8 spheres, and 2 domes. Save your model. Close 123 design.

Step 2: Optimize It for Cardboard

Open 123d Make at and load your previous project. Then download sheets. 

Step 3: Fabricate

print your sheets, draw the outline on cardboard, and glue the pieces together! or if you are laze like me and have access to a 3D printer, 3D print your bunny. You can find my design here:

    i do not recommend 123make if you want 100% result, I’ve tried two projects (owl & spider monkey) using stacked cardboard technique, the did not come out right even though i used laser cutter, especially the monkey

    even your rabbit is a bit distorted which, obviously, is the programmes fault :)

    Were you able to 3D print directly from the 123DMake file -> G-code tool, or did you need to feed the 123DMake file to a slicer as an interim step?

    Thanks for making this easy to follow i11s for making this sort of thing. I've been wanting to do this and didn't know the right software to pull it off
