Bag

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>BAG</SPAN> template

A typical paper bag that can be stored completely flat. This template can be used to create both a slick little goodie bag or a large grocary bag. This design is also used a lot for gift wrapping wine bottles. The top of the bag is folded for reinforcement. Do not use paper or cardstock that is too heavy as it will make it more difficult too fold the template.

Box with lid

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>BOX WITH LID</SPAN> template

Print template for box with lid, for example a shoebox or a board game box. Length, Width and Height are all inner dimensions. This template is economical for rather shallow boxes. If the box is tall, use the card box instead.

Cake Slice Box

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>CAKE SLICE BOX</SPAN> template

A piece of cake. Quite literally. A wedge-shaped box that can be used to store pieces of cake. The box consists of an upper and a lower part. The upper part is the cover. The lower part, the tray, does not need glue because it will be locked by the cover. By default, the cover is 5% larger then the tray but this can be adjusted in the expert settings. The angle is a measure for how big a piece of cake can fit in. Look in the figure if you don‘t know what to enter here. For example, an angle of 30º is large enough for 1 piece from a 12-piece cake. The length is the length of the piece, which should be about half the diameter of the complete cake. But, be sure to add quite some allowance here.

Card Box

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>CARD BOX</SPAN> template

Cone (truncated)

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>CONE (TRUNCATED)</SPAN> template

A cone, optionally with the top cut off. (In that case, it’s called a frustum). Can be used to help create the geometry for a beaker, vase, party-hat or lamp shade. If you'd like a real cone, just use zero for the top-diameter. Tip: do not score or fold the fold line this template to keep seam smooth.

Gift Box

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>GIFT BOX</SPAN> template

A typical, straight-forward gift box. This box is very similar to the Card Box, but the layout is different. This template makes most efficient use of your sheet of paper if the dimensions are close to eachother. Templatemaker will try to correct impossible values automatically. Be aware of this if, for example, the thumbhole is smaller then you expect.

Mailer

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>MAILER</SPAN> template

The mailer is an extra thick envelop that can be used to pack items that are flat, but thicker then just a sheet of paper. It can hold, for example, a pile of cards of a bag of flower seeds. Use a piece of sticky tape to keep the cover in place.

Cylinder with mitered ends

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>CYLINDER WITH MITERED ENDS</SPAN> template

Tube, cylinder, toilet roll core, regular polygon based prism. Optionally ‘mitered‘ or truncated at an angle. With default settings, this template gives standard toilet roll. You can also choose to have a ‘mitered’ cylinder, with different miter-angles for the top and the bottom and with a twist between these two. Use these settings if you need to create tubes that are welded (or glued) together at an angle. If you choose 12 segments or less, fold lines are drawn along the length of the cylinder and glue tabs are placed on the top and bottom.

Multi Sheet Box

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>MULTI SHEET BOX</SPAN> template

How annoying that a sheet the size of an A4 or a Letter is so small, isn‘t it? This template allows you to construct much larger boxes by using 6 separate sheets. It takes a bit more glue but you can make a much more impressive box! Use some sturdy material. You might use scavange some old cereals boxes or pizza boxes. Be aware that your desktop printer might need some ”convincing” to accept these.

Parallelepiped

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>PARALLELEPIPED</SPAN> template

A three-dimensional figure formed by six parallelograms. Imagine a regular box that is slanted in three directions. You can also use this template to create a simple brick shape or a dice (cube). In that case, just keep the angles at 90º.

Passepartout

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>PASSEPARTOUT</SPAN> template

Passepartout, Photo Frame or Shadow Box. Glue-less, hollow, double-walled tray. Create a photo frame for your photo‘s with a posh, wide and deep frame. Enter the dimension of the “inner space“ (the size of the picture or object to display), together with how thick and wide you‘d like the border of the frame to be. The eventual model will be larger, because of the width of border of the frame. The model can be constructed without using glue, although a bit of glue won‘t hurt.

Pillow Pack

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>PILLOW PACK</SPAN> template

A simple, economic yet charming shape for packing items like vouchers, jewelry or clothing. Do not make the pillow pack too thick, or the paper will tear when you fold the ends﹕ keep the width at least twice as long as the height. Once folded, the widht and length will be slightly smaller then the values entered because of the curves of the cardboard.

The Platonic Solids

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>THE PLATONIC SOLIDS</SPAN> template

All five so-called Platonic Solids. The Platonic Solids are the five regular convex polyhedra. The Cube is the most famous one, of course, although he likes to be called “hexahedron” among friends. There is only parameter:the diameter of the midsphere. The midsphere is the sphere from the center of the object that touches all the edges exactly in middle.

Polygonal Box

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>POLYGONAL BOX</SPAN> template

Tube-shaped (or prismatic), polygonal box with gusseted, integrated lid. This box is very decorative and ideal for gift wrapping odd-shaped presents. The lid uses both mountain and valleys folds. The glue tabs on the bottom fit together precisly. The lid will fold easier if you remove some material from the place where the five fold lines meet. (The model does not work for 3 or less sides)

Star Shape

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>STAR SHAPE</SPAN> template

Star-shape with arbitrary thickness and number of points. Depending on the dimensions, you'll either get one pyramid-like shape for every point of the star, or flatters (pancake-like shapes) for either side of the star. The latter is the quickest and easiest way, but thin stars with long points look the best. To obtain this one: use a large height, large inner radius and a low amount of points. The given parameters will work for this.

Star Shaped Box

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>STAR SHAPED BOX</SPAN> template

Have you ever dreamed of just sprinkling stars? ✨Now you can, and you can even hide a present in them! The folds are a bit origami-like, score them well and make sure the star is reasonably thick. “5“ Is indeed the ideal number of points, but fewer or more is certainly possible. Shine!

Trapezoid Box

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>TRAPEZOID BOX</SPAN> template

Also called a trapezoidal prism or a trapezoidagon (just to sound impressive). One typical use for this model is packing pralines. It can be the basis for many shapes, as long as the top and bottom are paralel and oposing sides have equal draft angles. If you use yellow or gold paper, you can use it to make paper ‘gold bars’. (Or gold pressed latinum, if you prefer.)

Tray Insert

Explanation of the geometry for the <SPAN LANG='EN'>TRAY INSERT</SPAN> template

Box insert for thin items. Use this template to create a box insert that locks an item safely in the center of a box. It leaves some extra space for a thumbhole, so it’s easy to retrieve the item.
