TMT paper model
TMT Paper Craft Prototype White Model from nn National Astronomical Observatory for distribution and workshop purposes.
Inquiry for paper craft production.
The company has been providing us with the production cost, and we have started production since 2013.
The actual design of the TMT telescope itself was still in progress and had not been completely decided, so there were no 2-D blueprints.
With the cooperation of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (TMT Promotion Office at that time), we were able to view 3D graphic data for demonstration purposes.
Production proceeded based on other materials related to the TMT from the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.
(Any changes or corrections were made directly from NAOJ.)
Only a small number of copies were produced using on-demand printing and on-demand cutters.
I started working on the styrene version right after this one.
I did not take any images of assembling this sheet and will reproduce them in the next article.
(I have permission from the TMT project to reprint and manufacture this piece.)
