I have no idea what software I'm using. Whatever came on the iPad.

Probably my main issue -- and again, I know the problem is on my end -- is that in order for me to print things, I have to open the files on my wife's iMac, load them onto a thumb drive and head to the local copy shop which, like everything else here in Cyprus, is closed for the foreseeable future. At 60-plus files to open and load onto the thumbdrive, that's a lot of work.

Like I said, the problem is on my end, not yours....

Oh nice. I have been trying to construct the same type of workflow in blender directly, using various layers in the materials assigned. I've been taking a bunch of online classes about procedural textures and using the node editor.

My knowledge of inkscape is pretty limited so far. I just use it for page layout and that is about it.

I'd love to see a video or tutorial of your workflow doing the graphics in inkscape.

NP man I got you sorted. PDFs PDF Architect 7 was used for their creation.

Sorry no photos. However if you have Blender and downloaded the Blender model file included you can open that up. Hit Alt+H and it will reveal the internal structure parts to the left of the main model.

Awesome work. thanks to the pandemic I now have time to build paper models again.

Thanks!
I just printed it out today. Your size was a bit too big for my VERY limited display space so I decided to scale it down to 80% the original size. Then I sort of shuffled the parts into a set of A3 pages (I don't print them myself, I send to a local print shop) and brought the total number of pages I needed to print to 17, not including the formers. If anybody's interested I can post the file or send it to you Cheezy.
