HELP! Pepakura only prints numbers, no lines.

So i just went to use my usual Pepakura priner to print a spike grenade. When it prints it only prints the edge id numbers, no lines at all. What could be the problem?
 
maybe you set it to do that on accident? Try starting up the program again, if that still doesn't work, I have no clue then.

Make sure line transparency is off, otherwise check line width, it may be too small to even print. Heck, your printer may be out of ink and be printing what it can.

yea after i installed the cartridge (black only, no color) it printed my test page fine. So does anyone know how to change the line transparency or line width, because i cant figure it out for the life of me.

found it under print and paper config, it was the line transparency, it was set at midway, 50%, and i changed it to 0% transparency.

Good job :D, glad I could help!

Does it work now? normally I mean, now it should print lines and numbers just fine.

yep works great now, just printed a spike grenade and the simplified MA5C, the detailed model was just taking me TOO long.

BTW i scrapped my armor from last year nd im restarting with the HD models, all H3 i also plan to do EVERY weapon including support and equipment, as well as 2 of each dual weildable weapons.

Re: HELP! Pepakura only prints numbers, no lines.

I just had this issue too printing for my first time. Resolved this by turning transparency to 0%, selecting 'Print lines clearly (Vector Print)' and then setting lineweight to 10. Nice strong lines now :)

Eagle this was from 2008. Please be aware of how long ago this was and how irrelevant you are to the post. Not only that but it is against the rules and frowned apon.

Sorry, was just trying to help out. I only added because I had a similar problem and simply turning the transparency down wasn't enough to get the lines to print. I thought I'd add to this so that anyone else having the same issues would have a better chance at resolving them but next time I'll just start a new thread instead of pulling up an old one. Hopefully that won't be frowned upon.

I disagree - this is a viable fix for Pepakura issues that a lot of members aren't aware of. It's on-topic, and while it certainly could have been left alone, I don't see a problem with the post.

If you go to settings (at the top, not the icon) then go to Print Settings there is a Print Lines Clearly and Print Lines Smoothly. Switch it to whichever it isn't set to. This worked for me.

I'm not trying to be disrespectful but Eagles post actually helped me and i didn't realize i didn't have Print Lines Clearly off.

My problem is that its printed out the shape but not the numbers any help? (Btw this is my first time trying to make pepakura models, planning to make a mark 6 armour from halo 3)
