    Using Metasequoia,this is my 5th attempt on making a 3D model(the first 4 ruined,because of not unchecking the basic mode).I followed NOBi's guide on making this plane(Thank you,NOBi!!!).Even the guide is incomplete(still part 5),I still continue on my own by reading those older posts(those helped me).Is the model good?If it is,I'll try unfolding it into printable model later.

    Comments?Thanks,
    Daus

    Looks good, better than my efforts at the moment as I struggle to learn how to use Meta. Do you use pepakura (?) for the unfolding? I look forward to seeing the paper version

    NNOOOOO!!!
    I forgot I can't buy pepakura(my dad didn't allow me to buy anything on the web)!!!Well,it's over...unless you guys happen to know any free unfolding program.But I still have the 3D file.

    About the He P 1073.8 plane,I think there is a second engine on the bottom of the fuselage.is it true?If it is,I'll update the 3D file with the second engine.

    Thanks,

    Quite a stroke of bad luck I have to say. It may be possible, but I doubt the files are compatible, to export to Google sketchup which has an unfolding program. Blender also has one, but I have not figured it out. Maybe it's a scripting issue. :confused:

    MQO files are not compatible with google sketchup...Well,I really hope that Metaseqouia has any unfolding tool...

    You could try the shareware version of papakura, save and export are disabled, but you can unfold and print with it.

    I know about that already,but the problem is,when I print,only the text show up,not the parts.

    Here's my thread where I post about the problem:http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=165530

    I tried installing PDFcreator,but the installation is suddenly stopped at the end.I though it is finished but when I test it,on the printer selection on the print window,there is no PDFCreator or anything like it there.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Where there's a will...

    Despite all the bad reputation, purchasing on the internet is very safe as long as you stick with reputable companies. But, we're here to help so, When it's ready, send me the 3D file and I'll unfold it for you.

    I'm surprised about your problem with PDFCreator. That's what I use and I've never had a problem with it.

    Regards,

    SJ

    Don't worry

    Well,It's not ready yet,not until NOBi finished the guide(makes my model more beautiful).When it's ready,I'll let you know.

    The problem about printing on .pdo files is solved,thanks to bf109 and the PDF995 software(and others who helped me from software to models and guides:thumb::mrgreen:).The PDF995's installation is very easy,not as complex and long as the PDFCreator.So,don't worry about it.

    Thanks,
    Daus
