Origami Diagrams

Diagrams

I thought of sharing some of the diagrams I have been collecting over the last few months from various websites. These are available freely over the Internet and are mostly in the PDF format. I still haven’t gotten around to folding most of these as yet.

For some of these models, I have found instructional videos on YouTube; and have provided links to view these PDF files as well as instructional videos accordingly.

For more videos, please check out the category Instructional Videos on this site. In this category are those tutorials recorded by me.

All the diagrams are really interesting. I have made all the models as per the diagrams but I am facing a little trouble with the making of Praying Mantis. Can I get any help in this matter?

chochi February 6, 2010 at 8:37 AM

i’ve made Lang’s Praying Mantis, this is the most difficult model here, is very necesary to fold a thinnest kamido paper, and, other advice is, to hold carefully medium steps from 100.

rancon July 22, 2010 at 5:25 PM

awesome diags!

ignacio November 20, 2010 at 2:52 PM

ta bueno

lexie March 29, 2011 at 8:39 AM

you guys should make a llama ,that would be really cool

Ancella March 29, 2011 at 6:11 PM

Hi Lexie! Thanks for your comment, but, no I haven’t attempted designing a Llama nor have I come across a diagrams for a Llama, till date. If you do know of any, please drop in a comment.

Stas April 2, 2011 at 2:48 PM

Cool diagrams I tried making the praying mantis but no success I failed and failed its impossible well at least for a 9 year old kid like me.THANK YOU.Don`t make fun of my name because its polish.

Ancella April 3, 2011 at 2:24 PM

Hello Stas,
Thank you for your comment and visit to my blog. The praying Mantis diagram/design is pretty difficult / complex and to tell you honestly, I myself am yet to give a try at folding it. I’m sure you will fold the design successfully, in the end. It’s just a matter of trying till you get it right! 🙂

Nathon April 10, 2011 at 9:02 AM

This is one of the very best collections of complex origami diagrams on the net. Thank you for bringing them together here.

Ancella April 10, 2011 at 6:41 PM

Hello Nathon,
Glad you like them! Thank you very much for your comment.

this is the best origami website

Origami person May 1, 2011 at 4:55 AM

I tried to do the praying mantis but it wouldn’t load. It said it was taking to long to respond
although, I did manage to download some other models

Ancella May 8, 2011 at 9:45 AM

Hi

I’ve checked the link for the praying mantis diagram again. It should allow you to download it properly, now. Thank you for letting me know.

Azure May 10, 2011 at 8:39 AM

umm Can you make a help video on the steps of the girl in the dress the steps where u need to make box pleats please i’m so lost on there and i really want to make it i will give it away as a gift to my friend’s Birthday please it would be so nice Thank you U Rock.

Ancella May 18, 2011 at 5:43 PM

Hi Azure,

Thank you for your comment. However, I have never folded this model myself and I do not have the permission to record an instructional video either. Maybe you can find the answer or ask your specific problem in the Origami forum? I am sure someone will reply: http://snkhan.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6445&p=67562&hilit=Girl+In+a+dress#p67562

Azure May 19, 2011 at 1:18 AM

Ok thanks for the advice i will try out there :).

Ben May 26, 2011 at 4:17 PM

@ Lexie/Ancella: You can find a llama diagram in John Montrolls’ book “Favourite Animals In Origami”

Ancella May 29, 2011 at 4:42 PM

Thank you, Ben, for dropping a comment to let us know! Will check out the diagrams soon.

Neuza Arruda August 24, 2011 at 4:03 PM

Dear
I’m looking for a video how to make origami orchid.

Ken September 30, 2011 at 2:43 PM

I made an orchid from the diagram that is little complex. Sara Adams has provided several of her videos through http://www.happyfolding.com that shows you how to make several designs created by other origamists. I haven’t checked on this, but you might find a video that shows you how to make an orchid through this website. Good luck.

Ancella October 1, 2011 at 2:02 PM

Hello Ken & Neuza Arruda,
I have come across this instructional video on youtube (presented with the designer’s permission) – Robert J Lang’s Orchid – which y’all might like. The design is from the book Origami Design Secrets.

karman October 2, 2011 at 12:37 PM

hi ancella!!!

you should put d diagram for frill necked lizard.its really nice and might work well.therefore its a nice piece of kirigami!!

Ancella October 16, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Hello karman! I do not have the diagrams to the frill necked lizard with me. If I find it and see that it can be linked to publicly without any copyright issues, I shall definitely do that.

Dennis October 31, 2011 at 5:58 AM

I really love the diagrams.Especially the jellyfish.I could not make it.it might just be because im just 10 years old.Thanks anyway.Ill just keep trying

Dennis November 4, 2011 at 9:32 PM

Hi Ancella!!
You should put A diagram for Shark its very nice!

Ancella November 5, 2011 at 10:04 AM

Hi Dennis. I have linked to the Great White Shark designed and diagrammed by Joseph Wu on my Diagram page. There is another Shark (link to the diagrams, too) in one of my posts – this one is designed by Fernando Gilgado. http://origamiancy.com/2009/11/shark-design-by-fernando-gilgado/

Can you find a diagram for a origami song bird by Robert J Lang I am looking foreword to fold it

ComplexOrigami February 8, 2012 at 11:25 AM

Hey Ancella can you find a diagram for the origami
Grasshopper by Robert J Lang I am looking foreword to fold it

Bryan March 1, 2012 at 12:03 PM

Could you please find models more in Satoshi Kamiya’s level of complexity? Or at least some models with steps in excess of 200? I’m more into the very complex models :3. And also nice list.

Ancella March 4, 2012 at 5:39 PM

Hello! The diagrams to Robert Lang’s Songbird are in Origami Design secrets I and II. You can buy the book from Amazon.com or from Origami-shop.com. I don’t think the diagrams are available freely otherwise.

Ancella March 4, 2012 at 5:40 PM

The diagrams to Robert Lang’s grasshopper are in the Origami Tanteidan 11 – as far as I am aware, they are not available freely.

Ancella March 4, 2012 at 5:42 PM

Thank you Bryan for stopping by. I will definitely looking into sharing more complex diagrams, if I find any which are shared by the designers.

Naomi March 16, 2012 at 12:17 AM

Hey Ancella!

Thos is my first time on this website, and i really want to use these ideas, but my computer wont let me access any of the pdf files. Could you please fix this because i really want to do some origami!!!!

origamiist March 21, 2012 at 8:51 PM

I have been on a quest to fold a great mantis lately, and Robert Lang’s from Origami Insects and their Kin was my starting point. Experimenting with different paper types, weights and sizes lead me to conclude that this model is something of a dud. It looks good on a computer model, but when you fold it in real life, the neck is too thick for the body now matter how you squish it, or, with thin enough paper, the legs and wings are too flimsy to support themselves. The model shown in the photograph before the instructions is not the same model (although I believe it is also by Robert Lang.)

sean April 1, 2012 at 6:34 PM

you should get the phoenix 3.5 diagram

jack April 10, 2012 at 5:22 PM

what size paper should be used for a praying mantis. obviously after you get good at it you can go smaller, but what size would be recomended for the first try?

jack April 10, 2012 at 5:23 PM

What size paper should be used for a praying mantis. obviously after you get good at it you can go smaller, but what size would be recommended for the first try?

Chris April 11, 2012 at 7:47 PM

Jack for the mantis I’d recommend at least 30cmx30cm for the first try. Also try to have as thin as possible. It would be nice if you had made some tissue-backed foil to make it strong as well but it doesn’t really matter as long as you have some tape on hand for the closed sink.

BTW the mantis can be found on origami.com too under the diagrams page.

I think that the squirrel is one of the hardest. I’ve seen most of the models on this page but I saw some new ones so I’ll be procrastinating to do origami! 😛

Chris April 11, 2012 at 7:51 PM

Also some links are broken like the rearing dragon and pig so please fix them! thanks

Ancella April 18, 2012 at 7:03 PM

Hello Chris, Thank you for letting me know about the broken links. I have removed the entry / links to Quentin Trollip’s Pig from the list. I think he has taken down his website – so the links are not active anymore.

For the ‘Rearing Dragon’ I am able to access the diagrams for it. Its shared as part of Google documents and is public. Can you please try that one again?

jesse April 25, 2012 at 6:06 PM
