It’s also the name we gave to the engine on FunBridge (the artificial intelligence)!

Fold along the dotted line forms.

Do not force too much on paper. We advise you to make the folds on a stable table.
Tip: For perfect folds, you must groove the fold axes without too much force or you will completely cut the paper (ideally using a rule).

Proceed bonding tabs to create forms (ideally with a brush).

Choose a white glue, liquid or vinyl. Avoid excessive glues (super glue-type) or too liquid glues. For more precision, use the glue with a brush or a stiff card (credit card type) which will perfectly distribute the glue.
