Paper Model Workshop

A paper model is a model constructed out of thick sheets of material like paperboard and cardstock. The first paper models were found in Europe during the 17th century. This art is traditionally done by hand but these days, we have technology like 3D printers to easily print off a fully formed paper model. The main aim of this guide is to build an understanding of what you need to make something out of paper; the essential equipment you need, what types of paper to use, the software Pepakura and how it works.
