Steampunkesque Dragonfly by Luyomi333 Steampunkesque Dragonfly by Luyomi333
I finally after a long pause got to finish this one. It has many problems with the movable parts, but it looks not half bad despite that. I especially like how the mechanism for the tail worked out. And the hinges for the legs aren't that bad either, but they can be improved.
The head is movable to, though not the way I wanted it to be moved. Thus it just means that the head is removable
The wings were meant to flatter when moving the gears, but paper is just to flimsy to move a whole wing only connected to the gears by a 2mm thick and wide strap of paper.
This project in the end turned out to show me how filigree dragonflies really are.
In this project wanted to combine the fine details enabled by simple 2D Scherenschnitte with the three dimensions possible with normal papercraft.

Now THAT's what I call "papercrafting". Realy nice model. Wings must been hell to cut out.

They were. But they were unnecessarily difficult. I tried to made them extra sturdy, but in the end that was pointless and I didn't own a X-Acto knife that's why I had to do it with a simple box cutter. If I were to redo this project, I would make many things different.

Is X-Acto any better than boxcutter? In my opinion, they have same functionality.

Well. The lower one, I would call an X-Acto. It's smaller and therefore I can control it better and the tip is very pointed which enables me to cut out small circles. And I think its sharper, too.
