Step 3: How to Do It !
So you have this program with .PDO files on your drive and you want to print.
What now ?
A.] You can print it at home if you have printer, directly from Pepakura software.
B.] In case you do not have printer = you need .PDF to print it elsewhere.
Here you will learn how to convert .PDO to .PDF file !
1.] Install Adobe Reader to be able to open PDF files.
2.] Go to: http://www.cutepdf.com/products/cutepdf/writer.asp
There you can download CutePDF and GPL Ghostscript both which you need to convert files.
CutePDF will be added into your printer settings and Ghostscript does some magic allowing it :)
HOW TO CONVERT
1.] When you want to convert .PDO to .PDF all you need to do is PRINT as you usually would.
2.] Select CutePDF, print it = the proccess is fake so no printer needed !
3.] It asks you where to save .PDF converted file and that is all ladies and gentlemen ;)
