I'm afraid we don't have walmart in Australia :I
If we did, I'd be going there for everything.

I've never used a forum before, so I hope I'm doing this right!
My little brother is a big fan of halo, and wanted a helmet...and since I haven't been able to spend much time with him this year due to being away at school, I was thinking that this could be a really cool project to do with/for him.
I've got the pep file that he likes, and as far as I know, it's scaled...I've printed everything out, and cut/folded the pieces.. The only problem now is that I'm just not sure where/how to start!
Anybody have tips on how/where to start the assembly of the pep for a helmet?
Any help is appreciated! Thanks

Check out the stickies at the top of the n00b forum, you'll find lots of great resources there, but the stickies in the pepakura forum are also good:
There are a ton of "How to pepakura" links in there that are fantastic to work with! Hope those give you a good start, and good luck!

Well, first off. You need to make sure you are using the right paper. 60 - 110 lbs cardstock does the trick, 60 lbs will be easier to cut out, but I would go with 110 for the strength. You can use a low temprature hot glue gun, or PVA glue. I have a helpful guide I dug up on the forums here : https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_G2...5ZWZjYTFj/edit (Thanks Spitfire22V)

I apologize if i have posted this in the wrong thread. Wasn't to sure if i should post it here or 3D modeling. I'm sorry if it's in the wrong place.
Quick question. How do you unfold files in Pep Designer 3 ?
I just got sent a DS light helmet file and opened it in Pep designer 3 and clicked unfold and it unfolded it. But there's one piece that is huge and would cross 5 pages or so. I'm not going to build the helmet without permission but i'm just curious as to how would i cut the big piece into smaller pieces ?
The big piece is highlighted in red.
Thanks in advance.

I would say Break that part down into several smaller segments.
Heres a tip for anyone in the papercraft build stage: if you want good fold lines, take an X-acto blade, Dull it down to where it can't cut and go over fold lines like that. I've been doing that in conjunction with a steel ruler and Its never let me down.

How do i break it down into smaller segments ? I've never unfolded anything and just curious as to how to do it as i may give it a try at some point.

If you right-click in the 2D area and select the join/disjoin edges option you can separate the pieces or combine them. This may not be the actual name of the option, but it's something like that.
