May I take or create a Cubeecraft and use it to promote my website/company/property, enter it in a contest, make T-Shirts or other apparel?
NO. Cubeecraft is intended for private use and not to be used in a commercial capacity without permission! If you are interested in a commission or licensing the template for commercial or promotional use (including such projects as press kits, official downloads, books, pre-printed premiums, or another type of giveaway) please contact Chris. Prices are given on a case by case basis.

Difficulty Rating

A 1 scissor rating is the easiest and a 5 scissor ratings is the hardest -however every papercraft on Cubeecraft is designed to be as easily as possible to build. There is currently no model even rated as high as 5 on the site.

1 scissor. This is the most basic Cubeecraft. Cutting out the shapes and slitting the lines for the tabs will be the most extensive cutting required and the folds are very basic.

2 scissors. This means there is a shape that needs to be cut with an exacto besides a straight line (such as a beard or other detail).

3 scissors. This means there is an additional part or two not seen on normal Cubee’s that will need to be attached.

4 scissors. This means that there are various additional parts not seen on normal Cubee’s that will need to be attached and that those parts may seem more complex somehow.

5 scissors. No idea what this means – there has not been a Cubeecraft yet who was rated above a 4.

FAQ

Who is behind Cubeecraft? Although there are a number of guest artists with work on the site, the vast majority of the work, regular maintenance, and the original template which spawned this whole thing are all the work of just one guy – Chris Beaumont.

What kind of paper should I use? Standard printer paper should be fine – however, a heavier card stock will be more durable. Many Cubeecrfters use glossy photo paper. It is recommended then that you use something between 65 lbs and 110 lbs. Any heavier and the paper may buckle when you fold it. Be sure no matter what stock you use to score your fold lines before you fold them, this will make for a cleaner, professional look.

You just said artist! Is Cubeecraft art? This body of work is a paper-based “installation” functioning as an interactive community project; self-coined “Cubeecraft”. “Cubee”, pronounced “kyoob-ee”, takes “cube”, the geometric form underlying each design, and adds “ee” to denote the cutification and miniaturization of each subject. “Craft” describes the handmade approach to my premise and its relation to the ancient and modern practices of paper-craft generally.

The subject matter of each Cubee is heavily grounded in the subset of pop culture sometimes referred to as “geek culture”; each piece personifying concepts spanning from classical literature to the newest video game. Originally inspired by commercial package design, I fine-tuned the Cubees structure for over a year in advance of launching it to the public. Cubees are meant to be quick and user friendly.

Download-able and easy to assemble, the Cubees are an internationally shared project. Popular all over the world, sold (without permission or commission) on the streets in Thailand, used in classrooms in Japan and in American libraries, “Cubeecraft” appeals to a visceral need to build, and a cultural need to represent our ideas in an abbreviated fashion.

Or, in not so many words – yes.
