    How easy is it to transfer a PDO file to OBJ? is it easy, or do you have to build the OBJ from the ground up, with no help from the PDO?

    Can't do it with Pepakura Viewer, but with a registered version of Pepakura Designer you can simply export the OBJ from the PDO (File menu).

    Dang it, was hoping there was a way without bringing money into this. Thanks for the info tho.

    I could export the file for you if you send me the PDO, but not if it's going to infringe on the rights of the modeler or PDO file's owner. (Depending on what you're wanting to do, you should get "permission" from whoever "owns" the PDO model.)

    Well, basically a person wants me to animate Halo 5 models and such, and since this is the best site ive found for halo models, i decided to search here but found there weren't any models for halo 5 yet, so I was wondering if I could convert the pdo to obj so i could work with it. (I have to rig it which is hard for me but i bet i can make it work) then animate it. Im not really sure if that infringes on the modelers rights tho.

    Plus if i got it in obj file i'd send it to that model thing, so others can use it to
