Just in time for Christmas, it’s the newest FOLDed: Robot Reindeer. Robot Reindeer is available now from Argyle Fine Art in Halifax.
Before you begin you might want to view the “Getting Started” page for tips and suggestions.
1) Cut out the body, head, and tail sections carefully along the solid black outlines. DO NOT cut along the dashed fold line.
NOTE: There is a short cut just under the jaw on the left side of the head that is easy to miss. This cut allows for the front of the neck to be folded over.
2) Cut slits along the five solid white lines. This step is easier if you use an x-acto or other craft knife.
3) Pre-fold along all the dashed lines. Accurate folding will make assembly much easier.
4) Let’s start with the body section. Insert tab A into slot A and then tab B into slot B.
5) Fold the tail along the dashed line if you haven’t already and insert tab Z into the unmarked slot at the back-end off the body. After inserting the tail, you can spread the two Z tabs apart inside the body to help prevent the tail from falling out.
6) Now for the head section. I found it easier to start by inserting tab D into slot D, and then moving on the tabs C and E.
7) Now you are ready to attach the head to the body by inserting the X and Y tabs into the X and Y slots on the top of the body.
And that’s it! You now have a fully assembled Robot Reindeer. Enjoy!
RoboBeaver. Perhaps the busiest of all the robots. RoboBeaver searches the city at night for materials to use in the construction of it’s underground fortress. alright, honestly I have no idea what inspired me to design a robot beaver, but I still think it’s pretty cool. You can get yours at Argyle Fine Art in Halifax.
Before you begin yo might want to view the “Getting Started” page for tips and suggestions.
1) Carefully cut along the solid black outlines, DO NOT cut the dashed fold lines.
2) Carefully cut slits indicated by the white lines.
3) Fold along all the dashed fold lines. Making all the folds first will make assembly much easier.
4) I start by folding over the ears.
5) Carefully insert the tabs into the corresponding slots, starting with “A” (note, in this image the ear fold is still sticking up, but it should be folding down at this point).
Continue inserting tabs into slots.
6) And you are finished! Enjoy your FOLDed RoboBeaver. Have a good name for your RoboBeaver? Let me know.
Meet Claw Bot, the faithful eight-legged worker robot. Build an army of Claw Bots to do your bidding. Nothing could possibly go wrong! Claw Bot is available now at Argyle Fine Art, coming soon to the FOLDed online store.
1) Carefully cut out the two pieces. Cut along the solid black outlines, do not cut the dashed fold lines. Cut slits along the white cut lines. See the “Getting Started” page for tips and suggestions.
Once you have the two pieces cut out and the tab slits cut (as indicated by white lines) You should pre-fold along all the dashed lines. This will make assembly much easier.
2) Assemble the body section by inserting the labeled tabs into their corresponding slots.
You can leave the legs straight, or curve them into a more relaxed position. I have given them a gentle S curve.
3) Fold the radiometer tube section in half along the dashed line.
4) Insert the radiometer tube tab into the slot in the top of Claw Bot’s head.
5) Make sure the tube is inserted all the way into the slot. Spread the two tabs apart underneath the slot to make sure it stays in place.
6) OPTIONAL – If you want a cleaner look, you could add glue inside the radiometer tube to keep the two halves together.
And that is all there is to it! If you have a Claw Bot, send me a photo. I’ve love to feature it in a FOLDed fan gallery.
