Cutting Pepakura Files with a Silhouette Cameo - The Fast WayA tutorial on using a Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette Studio to cut Pepakura files.
In this video I use Pepakura Designer to prepare a file for cutting with Silhouette Studio. This includes setting the page size and margins, line colors, and exporting the files as a DXF and BMP.
The next step is to create a "blank" Silhouette Studio file - to do this I import one of the DXF files that I made and essentially prepare it for cutting; I set up the general settings and default values, then create cut materials for the bend lines and the cut lines. Then I delete the DXF file and save the Silhouette Studio file as "blank.studio3", this file will be reused for any pepakura files that I cut in the future simply by copy and pasting the file as many times as necessary.
Then I prepare the Cameo for cutting and cut the shapes out. The cuts are all done in one operation, with a pause between the bend lines and cut lines to allow me to change the blade depth. There is no registration of the Cameo required between the bend line cuts and actual cuts.
I hope you enjoy the video, feel free to leave any questions you have in the comments.
