Now lets start working on cleaning up these pieces. Many Pepakura models have built in support structures, which are useful when building molds but not so much when 3D printing. We are going to remove these.
Select a piece and go into Edit Mode.
Switch to Face Select mode.
You can select faces of the support structures by right clicking on them individually, but I find it easier to use Circle Select.
Press C then click to select faces touching the circle.
You can use the scroll wheel to increase/decrease the size of the circle.
When you are done selecting, press ESC.
To delete the faces, press X and then select Faces.
