Is the multitarget sample based on a real box?

May 16, 2011 - 9:05am #1

I've looked around for cardboard boxes that match its dimensions, even at different scales, but can't find any. What I'd like to do is use a more robust cardboard box, rather than folding pieces of paper.

If not, I can just reproportion the sample. But it would be convenient if there is a standard box that matches the dimensions used for the sample.

That's clever. I'm putting together some dev kits, w/ vinyl decals, and would like to include a proper box for the multitarget sample. Maybe I'll use a candle for the Martha Stewart edition ;)

If you're a handcraftily-inclined person, you might consider using cube/box shaped candles sold in stationary shops, and glue the printed texture paper to the side of the candles. You could even cut the candle to any dimension you might want.

I found one perfectly sized (10cm tall, 7cm x 7cm square base) cubical candle for my purpose, and it's much more sturdier than using hard cardboard/heavy paper. :)

No, I don't believe there is a standard box that this is based on. You can print the page on heavier paper, fold and glue for a relatively robust box. Otherwise your best bet is to pick a box and resize accordingly (as you suggested).
