Updated: 2013/01/13 ... 3 hours of work so far :)
Step 1: Download and open your file
Instead of 1 piece of paper I divided it into 6 parts.
More sides to glue = better practice !
Open your file in Pepakura Viewer.
Hit keys "Ctrl + O" ... OR ... File > Open ... or ... Drag&Drop it onto Pepakura window !
Step 2: Edge ID + zoom in :)
Be sure to turn on View > Show Edge ID !
Adds numbers to your paper, which helps :)
Scroll: zoom in to see what you need (MouseWheel).
Rotate model: both views LeftClick + hold + move OR RightClick + hold + move
Move model / paper: push + hold your MouseWheel + move mouse (or RightClick in 3D view)
Step 3: Print, cut
Now is time to print.
A.] you can directly from Pepakura viewer
B.] or you can convert your PDO file to PDF and print from other printer
Get your tools to work with !
Take your paper, cut out bigger pieces using scissors.
Choose some smaller piece and finish its details, edges with hobby knife.
Fold that paper edges as they tell you by type of line printed on.
