I can't wait to see how this is going to turn out. Is there a pep out there for this one? I'm currently looking around for a Monger helmet pep.

If you get a chance, would you put up a critique on how the craft robo performs, please?? I know it works, but want to know what some others think about the process involved on the programming portion. Thanks, mate. 8)

The CraftRobo rocks, you just sit back and let it do all the work. It DOES take a bit of a learning curve but once you get the jist of it man you just print out the paper and basically hit the go button on the thing and wam bam its cut and all you have to do it fold and glue.

Something to remember on the craftrobo ( I learned this from mels papercraft website), make sure in pepakura designer you have your paper size set to A4, NOT letter), then go into pepakura viewer for craftrobo and set your registration marks for (dont quote me on these not sitting in front of it) 25,32,15,10. you will have to arrange the parts to kind of 'fit' to the registration marks if you don't it doesn't cut them, I personally would semi fit them in designer then flip over to viewer and do a print preview to see how it all fit before i printed them out on the card stock.

If you have any questions give me a buzz back or you can go to the same website i went to: http://melspapercraft.weebly.com/us-letter-paper.html

Helpful site and again bit of a learning curve but once you have it figured out its just plug and go.

On another note would some one chalk up the money for one of those 3d printers please? Ill be your best friend for the rest of your life.

Is it failing after trying to read the first mark?

If you are using a carrier sheet line the line up the edge of the paper, not the carrier and then roll the paper up til the registration mark is just under the blade tip see if that helps it search it out any
