I need help with the conversion from sketchup to Pepakura.

I have sketchup 8 and pep designer 3.0b.

Are they not compatible?

I export as a kmz extension and when I open in pep, it force closes?

help?
Thanks.

If I remember correctly you can export from Sketchup as a Kmz(Kml) or Dae file both of which pepakura can read. (pepakura 3.08)

An alternative if possible export to Obj format, not sure if SU can do this as I dont have it installed any more.

The basic Sketchup can´t export to OBJ or 3DS. But you can use converters to convert KMZ to OBJ or 3DS files.

But you actually don´t need Pepakura Designer to unfold a Sketchup model.

There is a plugin called Flattery that allows you directly unfold in Sketchup. It´s not as comfortable as Pepakura, but does the trick as well.
