In the Settings menu, Print and Paper Setting... window there is a setting for the line weight.
"0", can't make heads or tails of Pepakura.
The thinner the better!
actually I try to not use lines at all in Pepakura ! Cut lines I can live with at a 1 .. but no fold lines especially! I really hate seeing a really nice model with dashed lines all over it! No matter how small and light they stick out like a sore thumb.! I would rather break the thing into more chunks than have to place folds all over it! The builder always has the option in viewer to turn on fold lines to see what he need to do.. and edge matching should be enough to build the model.. and DON'T EVEN get me started on TABS/// "We don't Need No Stinking Tabs".. I think I'll make a Signature with that one!
I agree, although tabs do have their place, from a certain point of view
Save the woods - Do not use tabs (it is waste of paper)
Save the ink - Do not use lines
Gandolf50 has a disciple
Yeah It's especially annoying when artists lock the pdo with a password AND only supply a lined template. Without password no way to disable the fold lines. (at least there wasn't the last time I've tried on Pepakura 3.X )
Many templates I liked never got into my build queue because of this..
I completely agree. If a designer insists on locking a design at least publish a lineless version
I think for beginners or non experianced builders lines and also tabs make sense. But I also would prefer the possibility to delete the lines.
I do not skip models because of lines, but I try to "delete" them by painting the model after having finished.
Summary: The thinner the better and with the possibility to switch them of!
Starbuck does make a good point. There are some figurines I would like to build, but I would have to have the lines first. An option not to have them really covers all bases.
