3d Windows Trashcan: Takin’ Out the Trash Retro Style

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  May 24, 2010

Just like everything else these days, the MS Windows trashcan has been re-born in 3D. But you don’t need special glasses to see this one. The guys at Codeco basically took the classic trash can icon from MS Windows and transformed it into a papercraft 3D model.

The design can actually be printed on a sheet of paper, cut out, folded, and glued together into the shape of the trash can or recycling bin that we all know so well. The design uses a single sheet of paper, but it would be pretty easy to scale it to a larger size, so that you could have an actual trashcan made out of paper.

These papercraft constructions are really neat because anyone can try them out. Once you get tired of them, you can just recycle them in another papercraft trashcan.
