    Pepakura scaling and PDF help is needed...

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    Hey all,

    I have been reading this forum for a while now, but only signed up today... This place really inspired me and my housemate to get a Daft Punk helmet build on the go!

    I was wondering if anyone could help with rescaling our helmets in pepakura? I had to install a virtual machine with windows on my macbook in order to get pepakura and have been a little confused by it all Its the same with having to PDF the pepakura file so i can bring it to work and print out the card.

    Is anyone able to assist at all? It would be hugely appreciated!

    Thanks!

    This is what I've used for both daft punk helmets, Iron Man Mark 8, and a full suit of Mandalorian Armor. Works great every time.

    Re: Pepakura scaling and PDF help is needed...

    Thanks for all the help so far, but I am having some trouble with the scaling in Pepakura 3, I have managed to get the scales right, but some pieces dont seem to fit on the paper, and I have tried loads of suggested settings (A4/Letter, changing the margin sizes etc)

    Can anyone shed any light on how i could fix this?

    Thanks again

    When you scale, it's all about moving the pieces around to fit on the paper. Just simply drag and click. You may end up using less or more paper.

    Yeah I had to scale it up which was fine, but I cant seem to get the pieces, such as the one in the pic, within the dotted lines? And those lines represent each piece of paper dont they? I even followed this awesome step by step guide.

    Just a bit perplexed as im a noob with this pepakura stuff
