Introduction: How to Make a Prototype Box
-hot glue/any glue
-Cutting tool (preferably an exacto knife or box knife)
Step 1: Think of What Use You Want This Box to Have, What Is It's Purpose?
In my case I wanted a box that would be able to organize a stack of notebooks. And so I wrote a list of all of the characteristics that had an impact or would be included in the design
Step 2: Sketch the Design of the Box That Caters to the Needs You Stated
I also added estimates of the dimensions of the box into my sketch
Step 3: Create Accurate Dimensions and a Sketch of the Box
I altered my dimensions in the bottom half of the page
Step 4: Assemble the Box
- Draw pieces onto the cardboard with a ruler
- Cut out box pieces. It is helpful to place the ruler along the cut-line and drag the knife along ruler to create a clean cut.
- use glue to glue them together
