Top 10 notation for Grumm

For a while you can download Grumm on this blog.

Grumm is a paper toy / papercraft / paper model or what ever you want to call it.
Because I’m swamped with work (started a new job) I haven’t got time to spend on Grumm and the promotion of it.

But even without that, Happy Sucks noticed Grumm:
they (??) created a Top 10 Paper Toy for Adults:

Grumm is placed at number 10, and I seem to be in good company:

  1. PP BEAR
  2. Spikey Baby
  3. Mask Hoody
  4. Mr. Robot
  5. Card Boy
  6. Brick Boy
  7. Hand Holders
  8. Big Chief
  9. Nice Bunny
  10. Grumm

Some on this list also can be found on this site

So thanx for the nice top 10 spot!

Grumm update

Grumm has now it’s own page on this blog: visit Grumm and read more about download and custom Grumm papercraft.

I’ve not been working on Grumm for I while, but I did find some time to put different files online so you can build/customize it.

Grumm The Screamer Red can be downloaded here.
Grumm The Screamer Red

And for custom Grumm designs; there is also a blank template which can be downloaded here.
Grumm Blank

Visit the Grumm page for more information and downloads.

The page needs some work, but I hope this will start some feedback about the templates and design.
So start building/customizing Grumm…

Because I’m swamped with work I haven’t got time to create a nice page. This page is more an update for people who wanted to build a Grumm, and now they can.

Grumm update: Extensions

When I started to create Grumm I wanted it to be a one piece (one A4) papermodel which is “easy” to build.
And because it is a “easy” model, it’s also easy to create a skin for it.

The next plan was to create extensions for Grumm.
These extensions could be more difficult, but would improve Grumm.

A extension is an addition (extends) to the main papermodel

The comments about Grumm at toydigger forum confirm that.

So here a little update about this extension project:

  • Grumm “Nuts & Bolts” head
  • Grumm Wrench and hands
  • Grumm shoe

And the examples are glued to a basic Grumm body and legs.
Grumm the Wrecker - beta

Grumm by Enkeling: Grummeling

I’ve asked a couple of friends and colleague to design a skin for Grumm.

The first to finish a skin is Symen Veenstra aka Enkeling and he called it: Grummeling

Grumm by Enkeling: Grummeling

And Grummeling from all angles:

Grumm Fabrique

A quick test I made for Grumm.

It’s done on the stationery paper from the company I work for.

So for lack of a better name, lets call it: Grumm Fabrique

Grumm the Screamer – Red

I’ve finished my first skin for Grumm.

I call it: Grumm the Screamer – Red
Grumm the Screamer - Red And look at him from all angles:

Update#1: Nobody will see the difference but I’ve updated the flash movie, so it’s now possible to choose the rotation direction.

Creating papercraft: Grumm – part6

I finished the Grumm printsheet version 3:
Grumm a4 printsheet version 03a

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.

But leave your email here in the comments, and as soon as possible I will send you a file you can work with. really I will!

So too collect all the stuff I did these couple of weeks:
The mugshots of the prototype:
Grumm mugshot prototype version 3

The Grumm logo:
Grumm logo version 2

And the print sheets:
Grumm a4 printsheet version 03a

Creating papercraft: Grumm – part5

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:

First version:
Grumm logo version 1

And after some tips from Symen:
Grumm logo version 2

So time to go to bed, and tomorrow is my birthday (well it’s 2 o’clock, it’s already my birthday)
