Thanks! That looks pretty cool. I look forward to trying it out.
BTW: The design I posted really only had one benefit: It will work on any existing wall 'boxy' wall design without modification. If you are doing "exterior" walls, copy-rotate-paste is the only mod needed to make the end look nice.
Your design looks much stronger, but looks like more work for the designer - adding yet-another-layer. I'm up for it if you are!
1) I must admit that this method (given the caveats below) produces the strongest-when-assembled fold-flat box wall I've seen. It (mostly) works well.
2) You really, really have to make this with a cutter, including using the perfect prefs/scores possible there. I tried hand scoring and *any* deviation causes problems with the ends (that normally get fixed/corrected for buy glueing in normal non-fold-flat boxy walls.) Hand cut/score + this fold flat design == frustration at assembly and a warped result.
3) Despite two tries, the cutfile - near the very end of the "cut" phase cut an unexpected segment when my cutter started to "grind" which says that it's going just out of the limits. I think flipping/rotating the whole model horizontally would help a lot (all the detailed cutting would be at the "close" end, not the far end- where the most cutting-sheet-alignment errors tend to happen.
4) Steps 1 and 3 in the instructions work as well as I expected. Step #2: The fold-over-slotted-tabs are just too flimsy, even with 110 lb paper. The slot-cuts are too deep. Can you shorten the notches or use some other method. None of the two I built survived a second dis-assembly for storage at at least one of these tabs.
I look forward to trying the next version - maybe on the *dark* textures?
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
