Zen in the Art of Cardboard Engineering
I've found another project that I had originally posted on the Flying Pig website many years ago. 

A model to bridge the gap between the precision of the cardboard engineer and the philosophy of the Zen Monk.
Through the crank and the cam the cardboard engineer can stroll through the garden of enlightenment and dip a toe in the pool of infinity. Print out the model and follow the instructions for construction.
Enlightenment awaits.

Last Chance for Free Postage
At the end of the month the Royal Mail are increasing their prices by around 30% (!) So from the 1st May I'll be charging a fixed £2.95 ($4.50) for shipping out the ricomplete CD. Until then you can order it with free world wide shipping here.

The ricomplete CD ROM contains every project from robives.com. Every download (including instruction pages), every e-book, every collection. That's dozens and dozens and dozens of projects all instantly accessible on your computer. Order yours here.
