well did you download pepakura? because that would explain why its not working for you
Thanks for the video. I'm new to all of this and it's a big help to see a video demonstration. I can't wait to get started now.
Im glad this is making your build easier to do!
Nice Tutorial this helped a lot but were do you get the printed paper kinda thing?
the paper is 110Ib cardstock can be found at any office store
the stencils come from pepakura
Great Tutorial, will help me alot when i start to make my suit.
Nice tutorial. I learned to take the project in steps, because right now my helm looks deformed.
On the topic of the metric system and why the U.S. is stuck on the current system. Well, who exactly is going to pay the money to shift all of the machines, the gas pumps, the packages, EVERYTHING, into metric? It will cost billions to do so and is not worth the time or effort. I know both the systems though, Metric is really a whole lot better, especually since it's used pretty much everywhere around the world.
As well, U.S. schools are not up to standard I agree, but only the public schools, which are government run. The universities and colleges are all some of the best in the world and people come from all around to study in them. They are run on a for-profit basis in a free-market.
what pepakura file did you use for the helmet? mines outdated and doesn't look as good. If you wouldn't mind giving it to me please I would very much appreciate it. also would card stock crease when it goes through a printer? JF140
hey where do you get the print outs to make the pepakura armor models? iv looked allmost everywhere and i cant find the program either...
The Pepa Files can be found here.
As for the Program its self, try a Google Search for Pepakura.
I had the same problem, make sure you read all the stickies, thats where all the info is.
Hope this helps.
Nice tutorial! I found it very informative. My only problem with it was the funny music in the background (I kind of liked it) and more light was needed.
Thanks for making it!
thanks for the video. it really helped me get started with pepakura. when i was introduced to it i was like "WTF? how is this suppost to work?" and now it makes complete sense to me. btw whats the song?
noob question:is there any way to make the body pieces from plastic(r sumthin' strong?)?
Pep with resin/glass will be plenty strong for our needs. You could use abs if you can form it (vac form). Of course sheet styrene would work also.
ok...super noob question..how the hell do you open the pep files on a computer?
Go to the pepakura armor section and read the stickies you need to download pepakura designer and then you can open the files there is a link in one of the sticky tutorials
with pepakura designer 2.
okay, for you, i would do this. http://405th.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1648 to get the printouts
http://405th.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=9892 because it helps
could somebody send me a PDF file of some models of armor, weapons, helmets etc.
I have a mac, not a crapy P.C. (I know, I know..."everybody uses a PC)
Send it too my email (my email address- firstname.lastname@example.org )
Why doesn't my pepakura have lines?!?!
Are there different ways (other than molding and cardboard) to make spartan/grunt/elite etc... armor?
Hey try using this Forum/Thread : http://405th.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1648
Jesus christ! 5 hours later! Breaks much? Thanks for this uber awesome tut, but im still stumped on one thing. How do you know what glues to what? Do you cut on EVERY solid line?
Yes you do cut the solid lines. #1 gets glued to #1 and so on. Read ALL the stickies then PM the Q&A Team when you have questions.
BTW - Jesus Christ had nothing to do with it. It was entirely you not reading the stickies or trying to learn anything.
I think my wife and I may try to make a piece of armor like this. Well... that is our HOPE....
I thought it was a great video. very helpful and I'm glad I found out you can use regular Elmars glue.
thanks it helped alot just one problem with the vid the lighting sucks
