One of the things I'm working on now is a set of slot-fit walls that can be used to create spaceship and space station layouts.
Here's my first paper test, showing how the walls can be used to create rooms, and showing off the sliding doors.
This sort of system would also work for dungeon walls, or to quickly assemble the interiors of medieval buildings (or any buildings, really). I'll be thinking about those as I continue working on this sci-fi set.

I'm sure that the final set will cover both bases with different texture layers. You really need to have the PDFs to see how many variations Dave's sets include. I can see space hulk in those corridors too.
I've had to put this project on hold indefinitely as a result of a hard drive crash. Fortunately, I didn't get much beyond the line-layout stage with this set, and it was highly modular, so it should be pretty easy to recreate it. For now, I'm working on some World Wars ruins and we'll see what happens after that.
Nothing new to report on this one. I'll probably come back to these when I feel like my SF texture library is up to the job.
Dude! It's been seven years! I will need some walls and stuff. I'm making my own, and they won't be either commercial or even close to your standards, but do you mind if I pinch the interlocking idea? I was wondering how to make the walls stand-upable but still flat-packable.
mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - the best thing to do is to pull the art out of the PDF and print straight from Silhouette Studio. That way you can ensure you have the registration marks you want, and the cutlines all line up. I have a video showing how to do this easily if needed.

cowboyleland: I thought they got rid of all their free accounts, but it looks like they re-thought that policy.

rag: mproteau - The plan is Worldworks' Titan Control. They have the cutfiles but the marks are in the old format - we'll see how it goes.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oooh... I'm at 256 out of 1000 photos... so, I suppose at some point I'll fall over and look elsewhere... and have to fix up all my product listings! I'll use my space frugally.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I have all my photos on flickr, and have never paid anything...

Vermin King: I didn't realize Flickr accounts cost that much. Maybe I need to raid the Agence Eureka site and Esben Rasmussen photostream, too

cowboyleland: I think all the paper model stuff there can be found on this board anyway.

cowboyleland: In the old days the way to post pics here was through a service like Flickr. These days I have better uses for $8.99 and I am going to close my account www.flickr.com/photos/cowboyleland/ if you want to have a look B4 it is gone.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Also, a fine time to plug my Patreon :-P patreon.com/paperrealms ; I have a LOOOOT of cutfiles available for paper minis. It's all Silhouette compatible, and everything I make has a readme to cover any special considerations.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I currently use a v1 Cameo machine (they're on v4 now) and love it.

mproteau (Paper Realms): The Curio is interesting - it has a different carrier mechanism that enables embossing. Some folks like how it handles scoring more than the other machines (that perforate to make a 'score' line). I recommend the Portrait.

mproteau (Paper Realms): The CAMEO models are a bit pricier, and get you a wider feed, and multiple tool holders. Not essential features, but could be great depending on what else you want to do with your machine.

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - I actually still have my Silhouette SD and it's still working great. The Silhouette Portrait is very much like the old SD machine. A workhorse without a ton of extras, it can handle Letter/A4 papercrafting just fine.
