Remember the Kilobus contest???
Well the result are in; there is a winner, go check it out!
And for you lazy bastards the gallery of all the participants:
I can’t tell this better then Fwis do them self:
Fwis Presents Readymech – Free flatpack toys for you to print and build. Readymechs are free flatpack toys designed to fit on an 8.5â€?x11â€? and to be printed on any printer.
I can’t give you the definition what a flatpack toys is. I can show you!
There are no blank versions of the Readymech, but with a little imagination you can make a couple new designs yourself!
Improvement is a new category I added to the category Design.
A lot of opensource and freeware programs I use are very good, but sometimes there is room for improvement.
This can mean improvement:
Sometimes I just want to rant about a stupid thing (usually windows).
Sometimes I want to help a developer as a designer.
Sometimes I would like some new features.
This project could creep you out! Kenn is the type of guy who likes too shot, kill paper animals, cut-em-up and hang these hunting trophies on the wall.
This is series 1, it has 3 different designs which can be bought.
Ill wait and see what happens in series 2.
(and yeah I will try too make one of my own)
I’ve tested this printsheet a couple of times and is as good as I can make it right now
And now you will probably ask: “where is the .PDF?”
Well …I first want too make a “skin” for Grumm before all of my “friends” start building one.
But I have asked the friendly people of Frutabomba too create a custom Grumm.
So too collect all the stuff I did these couple of weeks:
The mugshots of the prototype:
The Grumm logo:
I modified the print page again, but it’s more an exercise in beauty then major ajustments.
So the bigger part of today I spend on designing a logo for Grumm:
And after some tips from Symen:
So time to go to bed, and tomorrow is my birthday (well it’s 2 o’clock, it’s already my birthday)
From Grumm print v02 I noticed that it is quite small to build! It’s economical to print on one piece of A4-paper, but not very practical.
So I translate the one piece of A4-paper version to a two piece of A4-paper print.
But I haven’t got much time today: so I printed the plans I made yesterday (Creating papercraft: Grumm – part3).
And build this somewhat bigger version of Grimm:
(let’s find that digital camera!)
My French is bad… and thats an understatement. So let me (google) help translating the page where you can read everything: Customize the gorilla where you also can find the .PDF and start coloring because this contest last till the end of this month (October).
The first time a ran into this papercraft project I wasn’t impressed… I bookmarked the site, and today I saw it again. And team Kilobus has been busy: they has created a contest with the gorilla with some nice prices. He cleaned up the papercraft and contestants.
As I said: I’m glad I bookmarked the site.
I will make one of my own, but not before the ending of this month… I’m busy creating my own papercraft figure. (and I need to finish my design for this blog!)
Because the name “dude2006” was a working title, I wanted something more fitting for the design.
And where do you go to when you want a cool name: Symen Veenstra! And he came back with: Grumm.
In the prototype I made in Creating papercraft: Grumm – part2 I made some adjustments:
