Not sure if this is the right spot to ask this..

I love ubuntu so far. Thanks to all the support out there, I managed to get everything working; printer, scanner, flash, etc. With Wine, I managed to get my favorite 3D modeling program to work.

However; there is one program I use that will not work on ubuntu, and I don't know of any alternate programs like it. It's called Pepakura Designer, it lets you 'unfold' a 3D model out into a flat, printable template to cut apart and build the model from paper in the real world.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can make this program work; or if there's an alternate program for this? If alternate program.. it needs to be able to open .mqo files, and preferably save to .pdo.

Thank you, and I apologize again if this is in the wrong forum/subforum.

I'm sorry to bump this thread, but I'm hoping for an answer. Digging through google isn't turning up..anything.

is this software commercial,or can it be downloaded for free. If downloadable is doable then post a link or something and I'll try and see if I can get it to work and I'll post what i did.

It's shareware, but with a keygen it's free.

I'll have to fetch the keygen, though.

Keygens are illegal.

Use Blender to unfold a mesh and then add tabs in Inkscape or GIMP.
