Pepakura Designer

Pepakura Designer is a tool for creating 3D paper models.

A 3D textured model is imported from your design software and is then "unfolded" into a flat model suitable for printing. This printout may then be cut out, folded, and re-assembled into a physical paper model of your original 3D computer model.

Available input formats:

    3D file formats Pepakura Designer supports are:

  • Metasequoia (mqo) (Recommended: Highest compatibility, Free version, MetasequoiaLE R3.0, is available.)
  • Wavefront (obj)
  • AutoCAD 3D (dxf)
  • 3DS Max (3ds)
  • Lightwave (lwo)
  • Binary/ASCII STL (stl)
  • Google Earth4 (kml, kmz)
  • Collada (dae)
Pepakura Designer is available as a free demo with the save and export functions disabled. These may be enabled by purchasing a license key.

 Additionally, there is a new version featuring the use of higher resolution textures for added detail of the models, and a free viewer app which enables users to view and print already-created models in pdo format without having to purchase a designer app key.

There are a few workarounds required to get it functioning. Read the notes and howto in the specific versions for details.
