SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Retail Carton Tutorial

Picture-RegularRetail Carton: The main body dimensions for the width and height change between configurations. The rear corner of the box is ripped so the part can be unfolded. Equations are used to insure that the dimensions of the Bottom-Tab will update correctly if the thickness of the material changes. An edge flange is used to create the Tab that will be glued to complete the retail box. The Break-Corner allows us to change from a chamfer to a fillet without having to delete and recreate anything.
