Pepakura Designer

This is so cool. Pepakura Designer is a program that takes a CAD file as input and prints out paper with the folds and cuts indicated so you can make your model.

Pepakura Designer software

"Pepakura Designer allows you to create a development for paper craft easily from 3D data used in 3D CG software.

This software is open to the public as shareware....You need to create own 3D models with another 3DCG software (ex, 3D Studio, LightWave, Softimage and so on). If you don't have any 3DCG software..."

Runs on MS Windows. Free trial download. ~$40 if you continue to use it.

Here are some models people have made with Pepakura Designer.
