I've currently moved over to blogging at http://mathcraft.wonderhowto.com/

Here I will be posting about 4 times per week and will have a project every week with more in depth information and a how to component and templates. There will also be a user forum for people to submit pictures and ideas.

Thanks! I hope to see you there!

La Sagrada Familia

I finally finished a papercraft project I've been working on for about a month. It's made up of parts of 29 sheets of cardstock. It is a model of a cathedral that is being built in Barcelona called La Sagrada Familia (The sacred family.) The designer is Antoni Gaudi who built a lot of cool and crazy looking buildings. He started working on this project in 1883 and worked on it until his death in 1926. It is currently slated to be finished in 2020. The completed cathedral will have 18 towers,12 for each of the apostles, 4 for the messengers, 1 for Mary, and the tallest at about 560 feet for Jesus Christ. My model is only about a foot tall and doesn't do the real building justice...but it still is amazingly detailed and is by far the hardest papercrafting project I've embarked on that doesn't involve moving pieces (still haven't finished up the watt governor for the steam engine that has all moving parts.)

Everything needed to create the model (except for materials of course!) can be downloaded here:

Here's some pictures of the model, and a video of the actual cathedral as it is now.
