    Red lines in Pepakura indicate that the lines in the 3D model are actually two separate lines on two separate surfaces, even though it might look like there is only one line.

    In Pepakura go to the "3DModelWindow" menu and click on "Join Adjacent Isolated Edges". This will only work if the edges in question are part of the same sub-object in the 3D model. I don't know if Sketchup has an equivalent, but in Meta there is an option to join vertices that are at or near the same place - this happens a lot when manually creating faces. Look for something like that, or move the faces around the red lines to see if the faces are actually joined.

    Hope that helps,

    :mrgreen: I found the problem, its so stupid (me)wall1.

    In sketchup you can reverse the face your looking at. So when i put the textures on all this was hidden. Now that i have made all the faces the same way, IT WORKED.
    But and their is all ways a but, the middle section does not work. A little re-design will have to be done.

    Hope this helps anyone else using sketchup with Pepakura.
