Hey all. A few years ago I put together this lil' dude.

Worlds smallest In The Groove machine

It took me awhile, but I've finally gotten around to fixing a few small issues I had with the original design and have made it into a printable PNG file.

The image is approx 10" x 15" @ 300dpi. I suggest printing it on a very thick 11x17 cardstock paper so that it will keep its shape after assembly. If you have any questions, please ask, but I think most of you will be able to figure out how to put it together once you get into it.


Papercraft ITG2 Machine:

For reference, here is the ITG2 and DDR Extreme cabinets I made in Google SketchUp that I used to create this papercraft model.

Already printed mine out and I am now working on it!!!!!!!
Also how do we make a papercraft guide of the Extreme machine from google sketch up?

EDIT: nevermind I found it
This software takes 3d models and makes papercraft guides out of them

Also guys, make sure you print this out on 11x17 paper otherwise you'll be getting a REALLY tiny machine if you do it on 8.5x11

Really? I thought it'd come out the same size as mine. Oh well, it was late and I was super tired, so perhaps I messed that up a bit. It is 300dpi, so doubling it's size would probably be fine.

And Papakura was indeed the program I used to convert my file to a papercraft model. However, it's not that simple for the Extreme machine. My models on 3D Warehouse are (relatively speaking) highly detailed. The model I used in papakura was a much more simplified version of my ITG2 model on 3D Warehouse. The reason I did this is because Papakura isn't intelligent, and will try to make EVERY SINGLE piece into it's own part: Example, the subwoofer glass, metal circles, and the aluminum trim were all disconnected. So I had to flatten that entire part into one solid piece and put a texture on it that made it look like multiple parts. If you can get it done, more power to ya, but you might need to wait until I can get around to making a Papakura-friendly version of my Extreme machine before we get a papercraft of that.

Also, make sure you share this with Sarah, as she was the one that motivated me to get this thing out onto the internet.

The original was too small. I've reuploaded the file at the correct size. It should print off just right on an 11x17 paper. If you can't find card stock of 11x17, then just print off the different "parts" of the machine on 8.5 x 11 cardstock and assemble it from there.

Good Luck!
