You’ve become obsessed with papercraft and you want to make more 3D figures. You have your free Pepakura viewer just waiting for files. Finding Pepakura files isn’t easy. There are many people asking about websites online, other people linking to dead files, others linking to download websites that require sign-ups or bring out the fear of viruses.
Here, for you papercraft fans, is a large list of websites with legit, virus free Pepakura files for all kinds of papercraft ideas.
One of the most popular uses for Pepakura papercraft files is for costume armor. People make complete body armor out of paper and wear them. That’s what you want, right? The best website for armor is The 405th. Search the forum for tons of files for Halo, as well as World of Warcraft and Warhammer 40k. For more Halos files, visit the Halos Costuming Wiki which links to many files but also includes pictures so you know what you’re getting. A good resource for Warhammer 40k papercraft files is Obscurus Crusade. Each section of the forum is dedicated to a certain class.
Another popular use for 3D papercrafting is to make 3D models of video game characters. None seem more popular than Final Fantasy. There are many Final Fantasy papercraft websites, but you want the ones with the best free files. Final Fantasy Papercraft has files from the first game all the way up to the newest, including Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns. Ace Crafts has many similar Final Fantasy papercraft models, but many people flock there for the replica swords, including the Buster Sword.
Of course you want to build your own pokemon from paper, and you’ll even let your kids help. The best Pokemon papercraft site I found is Jav-Papercraft. Don’t let the fact that it isn’t in English scare you. The downloads are safe, tried and tested. Use Google translate to help you navigate the site, but there are plenty of pictures to make it easier.
Some people like to make their own towns and buildings for tabletop gaming or fun with kids. If you want to build a fun town with your kids, check out Canon Creative Park. The camera company has many building, vehicles, and other accessories for play time fun. They do not require the Pepakura Viewer. For more detailed village pieces, I absolutely love Papermau. You will find beautiful pieces from all time periods. Finally, for beginners to tabletop gaming buildings, try out Wizards Fold-Up Paper Models. They do not require Pepakura Viewer and the folds are simple.
You can’t go wrong with a website that provides Pepakura 3D papercraft files for everything that the world obsesses over. These websites have files for movies, games, comics, anime, cartoons, TV shows, books, and every day objects. You will spend hours on these two sites. They are Ninjatoes and Tektonten Papercraft. At Ninjatoes, just click on the image of the category you want. For Tektonten, scroll down to find a list of topics by theme (cars, animals) on the left hand side and list of categories by subject (Marvel, Harry Potter) on the right.
