    File Conversion for Pepakura files

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    I am confident that I'm not the first one to face this situation with Pepakura: You open up the file, and start resizing and scaling to fit all the parts to pages, you finish it an hour later and then you click print. Once you click print- BAM! the whole program shuts off and your hard work goes down faster than Hitler to Hell. I'm wondering if there is a genius out there who can convert this file: http://rapidshare.com/files/122107066/Guy-Man.pdo into a file that is readable in a program like Adobe Reader or the likes. Luchofunk- the person who made a very scale Thomas helmet did this for his file, and now everyone has had such ease with making the Thomas helmet, but i'm pretty sure theres plenty of people like me out there who want to complete their set with this model.


    Thanks in advance for anyone who is able to do this, you would make the lives of many of us easier.

    Actually, I don't think you need to convert it. You could print it with pepeakura 2. If that fails, I can try to make a PDF.

    I tried converting it, but like you, it crashed the program. The file may be corrupt. I was able to extract the .obj file. I'll unfold it and post a fresh pdo and pdf of the file in the same scale as the corrupt one.

    I did a quick and dirty unfold and added edge id's. Here's the .pdf file.
    Here's the .pdo of the same file.
    I hope this helps. Good luck!
