Carton Project


You will reverse-engineer and build a cardboard carton.

  • Find and actual carton or a carton patent.
  • Unfold the carton, being careful with the glued joint (or print out the patent’s flat pattern).
  • Measure the flat pattern and draw this pattern in AutoCAD.
    • NOTE: Be precise with your measurements and your drawing as you will be graded on neatness and accuracy of your finished carton.
    • Use continuous lines for cuts, use hidden lines for folds.
  • Print out the carton flat pattern and cut it out.
  • Use as straight edge to make the folds crisp.
