Template-Generator for Paper-Boxes

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-06-13T17:16:00+00:00

I made a template-generator for paper-boxes today. Fill out the size values your box should have, then print out the generated mesh. Cut the dark lines, fold the light ones and - tataaaa - a small paper-box that can be used to wrap up all kinds of presents

The program is written completely in javascript using the canvas element, so it should work on any browser, supporting the canvas element

This is my Day 12 project for 30DaysOfCreativity

This is what the input-form looks like


and this is the template that gets generated

    What units are the sizes in? Thanks!

    the length is in pixel. The actual size depends on your printersettings

    There's no indication what dimensions A, B, and C represent.

    I suppose I could play with the generator and figure out, but that's, like, work!

    Well of course I could document it, but it would totaly ruin the element of surprice for all those who would like to experiment with it. Also nobody reads the documentation

    Just kidding

    A is the width B is the length and C is the height of the box and they are in pixels on the screen. How big the final box gets depends on your printer settings
