Robert Lutece Papercraft Download by XenonRay Robert Lutece Papercraft Download by XenonRay

After being amazed by BioShock Infinite when I picked it up on a Steam sale in the second half of 2013, I quickly set to thinking of the possibilities of making a papercraft template from one of the characters. It turned out that the 3D ripping method was the same as how I got the later Mass Effect models, so eventually I set to work on one half of the game's peculiar set of physicist twins, Robert Lutece, complete with his sandwich board from the coin toss scene.

It took a long time to edit and unfold due to being very busy on my postgrad course but eventually I set down to build it between 18th Dec to 1st Jan. I would like to make Rosalind too, but time will be limited again so that won't be until much later in 2014. The photos above aren't the best so I may have a second attempt at them in future.

Realistic human faces are very hard to get right in paper model form, so I hope this bears a passing resemblance at least!

Below you can find the links to download the resources so you can print and build your own version!

Additional notes can be found within the download file and on PDO/PDF #1. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

Oh my gosh how to you put these models together so perfectly! Anyway, do you use card stock paper?

Lots of practice on simpler models first! ;)

Usually it takes me 2 attempts to get a neatly built head (always some parts you can't predict). Yes these are made out of a cardstock about 2-2.5 times thicker than regular printer paper.

I'm building this model right now and it's just asdfghjkl amazing!!! SO I have to ask: would you by any chance be willing to make Rosalind Lutece? Maybe? Please?

Thanks and hope it's going well!

I have the Rosalind model and started to edit it. But it's very complicated to simplify...I must've really been in the zone when working on Robert. So someday we might see a finished version but it's not high on my priority list right now.

Yeah I understand how difficult it must be. No rush of course, I'm just very excited to have both of them on my shelf.
I actually finished Robert last night and my oh my is he amazing. He tilts a little bit to his right, sadly, but that's most probably my own fault (I must have messed up on of the legs a bit)
Either way I absolutely love him and can't wait for Rosalind, but of course there's no rush. <3

also i agree with the previous poster, Rosalind is MUCH needed.

Excellent, thanks for building all of these! Rosalind really is needed but I'm having a hard time kicking myself into action to work on simplifying the 3D :noes:

you know what i'd do? perhaps i would edit it so that the board is blank of scores and i'll get to work on playing heads or tails myself.

Sure the textures are provided for anyone to play around with, though I don't think you'll be able to approximate the Lutece's 'luck' quite so well ;)

(Also I'm really liking those soldier and character designs of yours!)

Holy moly, this is amazing. 
What lb paper would you recommend?
Reply
:iconxenonray:
XenonRay Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah I tend to work in gsm instead of lbs for paper weight/thickness measurement, so err sorry I can't give you a clear lbs answer off the top of my head! There's a handy table of conversion here though: paper-garden.ca/paper_weights.… 

Robert and my other big models are built out of 160gsm, whilst the recommend range is 120-200gsm or equivalent in lbs.

Thanks for the help! I'm also guessing you use A4 paper?
Reply
:iconxenonray:
XenonRay Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're welcome. Yes they're A4, so if you need Letter then you might have to make a few printer setting or page setup changes to get it to the right scale.

So would I! That was the original goal but I'm not sure where to find the time to work on Rosalind at the moment so she'll have to wait for a while...

Good job on the face man, Ill probably do Booker or Liz and will try to build it the same height as this model to maintain the size for a series.

Also love your Mass Effect papercrafts, Tali was my first papercraft ever! Wink/Razz

In that case, thanks for your support and building some of my stuff! I can't see myself doing many models in the near future so feel free to go ahead with any Infinite ones (not that I claim any in the first place of course! :S). A scaled series would be awesome to see!

Template looks awesome. Face is actually pretty good-looking too. Not sure, that i'll build this one though(not a big fan of Lutece characters). Buuut how about good old Liz model in future?
Reply
:iconxenonray:
XenonRay Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks, glad you think so. From certain angles he still looks a bit funny but overall I think it came out better than, say the Shep model. Liz is the obvious choice but again, face issues come up as well as hair which isn't just a shaped part of the head. Several months ago on the papercraft reddit, I saw a picture only of a completed first outfit Liz. Not sure what happened to it but there's always some hope there.

Nice one!

Probably wont be building this one but its looks like a good template and a similarly good build.

P.S. I'm working on a new one too (still Mass Effect) since I've finally finished with Frost Dragon Mk 2.5 ;)

Thanks, by comparison the suit is very simple compared to some ME armours so it's not too bad apart from the head and collar.


Mk 2.5? So you've still been adding to it since the last picture? Looking forward to whoever is next!
