You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pdo. Files with the file extension .pdo can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pdo files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pdo file?

The .pdo file extension is commonly known as an origami file that’s digitally created using Pepakura Designer. This software is a program used in creating paper craft models or what is commonly known as origami but instead of actual origami, they are created electronically and mostly in 3D form. The .pdo files usually refer to the 3D model and the 2D paper cutout as well as the folding lines, the cuts and the patterns of the model. These files are helpful as it makes it easy to craft paper models using the software. This file extension has Japanese origin because the Pepakura Designer is a Japanese program that when translated in English, is called Paper Craft. On the other hand, the .pdo file extension is also used by Microsoft Access; another application developed by Microsoft and belonging to the Microsoft Office suite that is used in managing databases. The .pdo files used by the application are used as Microsoft Access Package and Deployment Wizard script files which help in the distribution of Microsoft Office 2000 Developer solutions.

Tama Pepakura Designer

Tama Pepakura Designer

The latest version of Tama Pepakura Designer, as of this writing, is 3.1.1, and this software is classified as an application that is used to develop paper craft designs and card model ideas. As a program that is used for arts and crafts, Tama Pepakura Designer is integrated with functionalities that allow users to generate unfolded design patterns of 3D paper craft models. These 3D paper craft models can be exported by Tama Pepakura Designer into 2D patterns that can be printed out for quicker and easier reference. This means users need to import their desired 3D paper craft models into this software and cannot use Tama Pepakura Designer to create these 3D paper craft models because this application is not implemented with 3D paper craft model creation and editing functionalities. Tama Pepakura Designer is embedded with support for computers that are running on compatible Windows-based systems. 3D files that are created using Softimage, 3D Studio and LightWave among other applications are supported by Tama Pepakura Designer, which means these digital 3D files can be loaded unto this software.

These 2D design patterns can be printed out for better and quicker reference, and Tama Pepakura Viewer provides a wider range of printing options than Tama Pepakura Designer. Tama Pepakura Viewer is freeware and is implemented with support for computers that are running on supported Windows-based systems. ID numbers, highlights and arrows are also options that can be used in Tama Pepakura Viewer.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pdo files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pdo. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
