Yes it is
In the current version of Pepakura, there is a Print to PDF function, it will output the file as a pdf file.

Not for Mac-users, but in Windows, you can open a PDO in Pepakura and export it again as PDF. (as far as I know)



(Something I actually think all Pepakura designers actually should do, because a PDF is much more universal than a PDO file...)


EDIT: whoops, Rick was just one second ahead of me..

True, but if you have the original pdo you can just have the black outline, and you print on colored paper, saving ink that way, but if the model has different textures you will lose those

There's also a program called "PDO tools" which will export to svg format (and pdf on some computers) -- you can open the svg file in another program (say, Illustrator) and export that to pdf.

PDO tools

There's also a message thread on PDO tools here:
PDO tools and format discussion

Cheers!
