Here is a description of a universal instruction for assembling paper figures from templates downloaded from this site.
MATERIALS required for assembly:
2. Paper sheets of A4 or US letter.
3. Scissors or a craft knife.
5. Inkless pen or awl, or use the blunt side of a craft knife.
6. Glue stick, PVA, or similar product.
1. Print the PDF file оn А4 рареr sheets ог US letter.
2. Score along the dashed and dash-dotted lines using а ruler and inkless реn (awl, other similar tools).
3. Cut the parts along solid lines using scissors оr а craft knife.
4. Fold parts according to the folding lines. Dash-dotted lines must be raised (mountain fold), dashed lines – concave (valley fold).
This is an important condition for obtaining the correct geometric shape.
5. Glue the details.
CHANGE of size
If you want to reduce the model:
1) Change the scale in the print settings. You’ll need to click the Custom Scale button. The default percentage is 100%, but this can be changed to whatever you want.
The screenshot shows the Adobe Acrobat program, you can also change the scale when printing from the browser – the “Scale” tab.
2) Or choose to print two pages on one sheet – then you will get half the size of the model. You can choose to print four, six, and so on one sheet. In Adobe Acrobat, under “Page Sizing & Handling”, select “Multiple”.
The screenshot shows printing two pages on one sheet from a computer browser:
If you want to increase the figure:
Print the template in A3 (140%), A2 (200%), A1 (280%), and A0 (400%) formats.
A4 is the original size 100%. To print in formats larger than A4, you need special printers and you will have to go to print shops.
