EZ3D PopUps Sneak Preview of Upcoming Projects

Hi, Everyone!

I hope you have working on the vertical box exercise that was featured on the previous post.  I am still tweaking the templates for the Pop Up cards that we will be making based on that exercise, so in the meantime I am giving you a sneak preview of our upcoming projects.

I use a grid to design the templates for all my OA and Pop Up cards.  Eventually the flat grid is turned into a working 3D model.  I adjust the model so that it works properly and eventually it looks something like this:

Here is a view of the back of the model:

Once I have the working model adjusted and if I am going to be working in color, I add colors and textures.  Here is an in-progress sample based on our recent Level 2 exercise.

and a preview of some of our upcoming models.

Here is an overhead view so you can see the depth of the cuts.

 When the model is complete, it is inserted into an outside sleeve, either by slots, picture corners or adhesive. The top of the outside sleeve can be decorated.

That's all for now.  It's back to the drawing board to continue preparing your next free template.
See you soon!
