Step 9: Pepakura Printing Settings

After you have the paper resized, and the patterns re-aligned, you should be able to print. There are a few more things that you may want to change before printing though.


You can change whether or not there are flaps (which are used to tape or glue one pattern to the other), color the flaps, or change the width of the flaps.

Edge ID

You can turn on or off the Edge ID- it's a number that helps you match adjacent edges. From here you can also flip the ID position and change the font size. Size 6 font will reduce the chance of numbers overlapping.

 Line Style

Here you can edit appearance of your line, if it is a Cut Line, Mountain Line (outside fold) or Valley Line (inside fold). Knowing the overall look of your Mountain and Valley lines will help you know whether you are folding out or folding in. If you are not satisfied with the line type defaults, you can also change them to your preference.

Is it just me or does anybody else think 'pedophile' is not a good choice of file format name?
<p>maybe he should move to america</p>
can some on please help me i am trying to make a master cheif helmet but i cant seem to get the file on to pepakura i have also tried to get the file from other sites but it still didn't work......................................................PLEAS SOME ON HELP!!!!!
I think that every time lol.
You might want to change this section of SCALING. #4 should read &quot;number found in STEP 3&quot; not step 2. That is a little confusing and I only figured that out by looking at OTHER resizing info. ALSO, in #2 you might want to put the formula in parentheses as at first reading it looked like you wanted me to do 86.74/86= because of the PERIOD.
among other things, I imagine building the gnarliest Gundam models outta this baby!
I know Pepakura runs (to a degree) under WINE on Linux, but does anybody know of a native application that will do this?
thank you i love the program ill follow you on here
is it free? and how big is it (as in mb or gb)
It's around 5 mb
is it free or do you have to pay for it?
It costs $38.
Can you import 3d models from sketchup, and then convert it to papercraft? I also foun a super cool pop-up card designer on their website! <br />
There is a sketchup plugin called &quot;unfold&quot; that you can use to unfold a 3d design within sketchup.
&nbsp;Yes you can! :) You can also import from blender or 3d studio max :)<br /> <br /> Best Regards Michael<br />
So, what if you import a model with round sides? Does it &quot;paperize&quot; it and substitute, like, 3 folds for it?<br />
&nbsp;Yes, thats exactly what it does ;)
coolio!<br />
&nbsp;is pepakura for mac
No, sorry! You can either run it through Bootcamp or a similar program, or convert the .pdo files that you download to .pdf files that can be read with Adobe Reader. There is a tutorial on the 405th website@ 405th.com, but I don't remember where it is. :P Check the stickies on the forums.<br />
&nbsp;This is all great, but how do I MAKE the file in Pepakura. This is all going of the fact that whoever is doing this, HAS the blueprints, I don't.
