Pepakura (Paper Modeling) Class


Saturday, February 24- 2 pm to 4 pm


2200 Kraft Drive, Suite 1474 (Drive around the right side of the building all the way to the back)


Pepakura, or papercraft, is the art of cutting, folding, and glueing paper to form 3D models. These models can be treated with glue, resin, or bondo to form useful objects including helmets, armor, props, or any other 3D model! Using the shareware Pepakura Designer you can unfold any 3D model into a series of 2D cuts and folds to be printed and assembled.

In this class you will learn how to convert 3D models into printable files, cut and fold your printed designs, assemble a 3D part, and treat your part to be rigid and sturdy.

To cover materials and equiptment, this class will cost $5 for the public and free for members. Please bring cash or check to pay the class fee when you come.

Free tours of the Hacksburg makerspace will also be provided!
