    Help look like pepakura has gone crazy on me
    I have unfloded a model of starscream g1 cybertron ship
    and it's has doubled it

    When you loook at the model you can see a gray model and the color under it
    I thought at first it was fliped till i unfolded it and found the 2nd model
    now it is doing it with a few other ones I have unfolded and i have no clue as to why I know the mesh in 3d max is only one part so how comes pepakura is turning it into two or is it something i am doing wrong

    I need help

    The model is greyed because the normals are flipped. It is possible that there is a duplicate model as well (the flipped one likely).

    I'm not familiar with 3ds max though, so I can't help you there.

    You have double the faces because 3dmax renders backfaces, which are counted as separate faces in Pepakura. I do think that there is an option to turn those off in Max though.

    looked into it and still no joy
    Have turned off backfaces removed the textures and re exported the mesh still the same thing

    Not sure what i need to change
