What is a PDO file?
A PDO file is a digital origami file created by Pepakura Designer, a program that allows user to generate paper craft models from 3D model data. It contains a 3D model and its corresponding 2D paper cutout, which stores the paper model's folding lines, cuts, and patterns. PDO files are used for printing the design on paper, which can then be folded and glued into the original 3D model.
Pepakura accepts several 3D formats including .DXF, .OBJ, .3DS, .LWO, .STL, .KML, and .KMZ. Designs can be printed or exported to bitmap graphics files. PDO files can be viewed with the free Pepakura Viewer.
NOTE: Pepakura is a Japanese program that has been translated into English.
