Cube Craft - Very Cool
« on: January 27, 2009, 05:32:02 AM »
There's a thing going round work atm (some of us get a little spare time every now and then OK? :P) and I'm having quite some fun with it. It's called Cube Craft. Basically you get prints off a website, you print them out on your standard color laser and cut them out and fold them up. There are images of all your favorite nerdy characters from Star Wars to Family Guy, and they're all in a cube (or more accurately, rectangular prism) shape.

The website I'm into is cubeecraft.com. Here are a few samples, click on them to download their pattern:

         

Let us know which ones you make, and give us some photos if you can. I'll post back once I've completed my Vader :)

Ehtyar.

Cubecraft sounds a lot similar to papercraft, except papercraft isn't limited to boxy cube-y shapes.

Here's an example:

Goomba.jpg

I made Goomba a few months back for a friend who insisted that I give her something hand-made. I dreaded it but it was actually fun making and quite relaxing too. Nice change of pace from being constantly on the PC. My friend was pleased, which resulted in a more tranquil environment for a day or two. Are you someone who spends a lot of time on the PC? Have back aches? Neck strains? Then Cubeecraft's paperdolls are for you.

Nice Goomba. I suppose a ? block would be perfect for Cubecraft.

I've had this papercraft dragon for several years. It makes a cool optical illusion when you build it. It's designed to make it look like the dragon's head turns to look at you wherever you move.

Well here he is ladies and gents:

(the fullsize version takes a while to load)

It was a little tedious folding him up (and cutting him out as you might imagine), but I think overall it was worth it...he's just so cute!!

That looks pretty good Ehtyar!

By the way, I just realized it's called "Cubeecraft."

The website is cubeecraft. The concept is Cube Craft. Cubeecraft say the extra e comes from 'easy'.
