Essential software

7-Zip is a freeware file archiver that can unpack many different archive formats, like ZIP, RAR, LZH and many others.

Many paper models on the web come in Portable Document Format (PDF). You will need a free software like Adobe Reader to open these.

Paper models in PDO format have been created using Pepakura Designer. You will need to download and install the free Pepakura Viewer to open them. Pepakura Designer is shareware and you can’t save your work until you buy a keycode (printing works in the shareware version though!) To use Pepakura designer, you need some other software to create a 3D CG model first.
