Here’s a papercraft project to create a truncated octahedron with the TC Maker logo.
I’ve made a front print pattern and also a back shape pattern for a cardboard backing.
A basic way to build a model is:
1) Print the shape (back) pattern. With weak glue or tape, afix the pattern to cereal box or similar cardboard. Using a scissors or a utility knife, cut around the pattern. Remove the pattern sheet then score the cardboard where there will be folds.
2) Print the logo (front) pattern on thin white or colored paper. Position and glue it to the cardboard pattern, opposite the scored side. Trim the excess paper.
3) Fold the cardboard along the tab seams and glue tabs to assemble the model.
