CUPID

Author: Rob Ives

Source: https://www.robives.com/product/laser-cut-cupid-instructions-and-parts/

The latest automata in my series of paper automatas. (Unfinished yet) I cut the pieces by hand scalpel (no laser cut) My inspiration was the build by michael42er :):


I but retained the original design. On the parts I used putty, grinded and sprayed with paint...The automata is not yet complete.;)

Laser cut is great, but you can cut as accurately if you are careful, as you have shown. Great job!! ;)

Mike, I'm s sorry I totally missed your fantastic Cupido. It is one of the loveliest things I have seen. It would make a great present for Valentine's day. :)

The cat sailor is awesome and it's really funny to see how he tries to fight the somewhat rough sea! :Drinks::Drinks::Drinks:

I actually have the SVG of this file ..and all set up to be cut from the Cameo..made one awhile back and stacked the cuts into a laminate! It is so well designed ( bar the face) that it will work out of cardboard ( like you said ( cut carefully )

Thank you :), I like to stick to these simpler things before I start something more complicated ... here will certainly be more paper automatas ...I am doing the next paper automata now ;)
Always Love to see something from you! I never know what it will be next and am never disappointed! Thank-You! You make card-modeling a joy!

Thank you, these are nice words. ;)
They're also better modelers, but I'm trying to make my models interesting even though they're easier ...
I also do photos, videos, animations ... if it catches at least 1 kid who will glued something and will not sit still on his mobile, tablet, PC... I will be happy :)
