    crash-lock bases on cartons and boxs... without the fancy software. how to?

    Been doing a bit of carton design at work using a piece of software called desktopcad by arden software.(not the most advanced)

    Now on software like artios and prinect i imagine it works out the crash lock for you, you just have to type in the dimensions.

    what is the maths behind working it out? Sometimes it can take like 10 attempts to get it right at work, and if you don't have a 3d preview to try making it up the only alternative is to cut it out on our zund and try it. I wondered if there was any books or references on how it was worked out before software took over.

    This is of the most basic ways to draw a crash lock bottom.

    cheers man that's what i assumed was the way to do it.

    does it not matter about the length between the glue flap and the centre (or where the overlap begins)?

    I usually have the overlap begin in the center but it could be offset as long as the opposite length panel was adjusted accordingly.

    The glue flaps on the bottom start where the 45 runs out of paper. The more square your box becomes the closer this point will be to the overlap start point.

    Hope this helps.
