BagBag

A typical paper bag that can be stored completely flat. This template can be used to create for example a slick little goodie bag or a large grocary bag. This design is also used a lot for gift wrapping wine bottles. The template has 16 holes, that correspond to 4 holes in the model. These can be used to put a cord through. The top of the bag is folded for reinforcement.A typical paper bag that can be stored completely flat.

A round, cylindrical box. The template consists of 4 parts and comes with a paper jig that can be used to assemble the box in a neat way. The top and bottom parts are duplicated in the template. When they are cut out you are left with the jig plus 2 tops and 2 bottoms. You can destroy the spare top and bottom. The jig will need to be folded, as shown in the diagram.A round, cylindrical box.

Cake Slice BoxCake Slice Box

A piece of cake. 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.A piece of cake. Literally.

Star ShapeStar Shape

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 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-shape with arbitrary thickness and number of points.

Cylinder with mitered endsCylinder with mitered ends

A cylinder that’s truncated under an angle. It can be truncated at an angle both at the top and the bottom. The length is measured over the axis of the cylinder.
The bottom angle can also be rotated around the axis, as if the already truncated cylinder were twisted.

Mitered cylinders, or tubes, are used a lot in engineering to connect tubes. For those who like to make boxes with this template: a top and a bottom piece are also provided.
Be sure not to fold the glue-tab!
