How to make 3D origami models

 

 

The origami models shown here are 3D models only. They are complicated compare to 2D models in folding but their shapes are more close to the real ones. If you are novice in origami, It is recommended to try 2D models first and be comfortable with basic folding techniques. If you master all these models, you are recommended to work on traditional origami models.
