is because it was offscale for me, so i use a ruler and the skyscraperpage los angeles section for the comparison, and i compared it with the another buildings, and it was wayy taller than the another ones, so i cut some floors from it to make it to scale, and yes, is too fat because two parts went offscale

you dont need to cut the floor.. just change the percentage before print the file. just a suggestion... you can use cutter for better folding and i think your paper is too thinner..

They are not criticizing you, they are giving you tips.

The diagrams on Skyscraperpage aren't the same scale as our models, so don't compare the two, thats where you went wrong.

Ok I don't think you would even be able to make something at scale 1:1889, it would be 3 cm tall... Your models are in no way scale 1:8889
