    • The parts and instructions for this model are compressed into ZIP-files: after you have downloaded them, you need to unpack them using a ZIP-tool. Most computers already have one installed, but if yours don’t, you can download one for free from the internet, like 7-Zip (but there are many others).

      Once you have a file archiver (ZIP-tool) installed, you can unpack the parts and instructions by doubleclicking them, like how you would open a regular file.

      The parts and instructions themselves are ordinary Jpeg image files, that you can open and print with just about any image viewer on your computer (just make sure they are printed at the same scale, but that shouldn’t be a problem: most image viewer automatically adjust the scale to fit on the page).

      If you are having trouble downloading the ZIP-files, try clearing the internet cache and temporary internet files, then close all the browser windows, and then re-start your browser and try again. Right-click on the download links and select “Save as…” to save the files to your computer.

      I hope this helps, let me know if it doesn’t; good luck and have fun building!

    • Does it say that when you are trying to open the ZIP-files, or when you try to open the Jpeg files inside?

      If it says that when you are trying to open the ZIP-files, then something went wrong when you downloaded the file.

      Try downloading it again, and check (right-click on the ZIP-file and select “properties” to see if the filesize corresponds with the one on my website (the ZIP-file for the instructions should be 974 kB for example).

      If that’s all okay, then make sure the un-ZIP tool is working properly (make sure it unpacks everything properly).

      If that’s okay as well, make sure you have a program that can open and print Jpeg files (they are just simple image files). Most computers already have, but if you don’t you can find many free ones on the internet that can, like

    • I’m not sure if I understand your problem correctly, but for this particular paper model, I compressed the actual templates in ZIP-files, so that they would be neatly packed together and save webspace on my webhost, so you need to unpack these first before you can view the actual templates.

      Firt, you need to download the ZIP-files to your computer by clicking the download links.

      Next, you will need a seperate tool to unpack the ZIP-files to get to the templates inside. Many downloads on the internet come packed in ZIP-archives, so there are many tools to unpack them. A simple, free one can be downloaded from

      After you have installed the un-ZIP tool of your choice, you should be able to doubleclick the ZIP-files and the tool will create a new folder where the contents of the ZIP-files will be unpacked.

      The actual files are plain JPEG image files, so after you have unpacked the ZIP-files, you can use your standard image viewer to view and print them.

      If you are having trouble with the image viewer on your computer, you could try to re-install it and see if that helps…

      I hope this helps, have fun building!
