V2 Unfolder complete, multipage pdf creation from its 2d output

Hello, my V2 Unfolder is now complete. (the project is here)
Here's what it does. (If your browser is not in french you will have english version)
You can enter the name of a 3d file that you have into the project's directory, then render to see it and it's dimensions. Then you can change scale and when it's ok you can check "unfold" and render (uncheck show volume and show dimensions to be able to export to .dxf).
To make a multipage PDF of the output, I'm importing it into Inkscape, change colors and styles when needed, then change document dimensions in order to have it containing all pages (on my example it's A4 x 12). Then I save a copy of PDF format. And I use a console command to make a multipage PDF of it :
pdfposter -p 12x1a4 myOnePage.pdf multipage.pdf
I only tested on linux, but the same can be done on windows or mac provided pdfposter is installed. Maybe this pdf creation process could be useful to other users.

@gilboonet there is even a possibility to do this via JS PDF library
